The sun will come out tomorrow, betcha bottom dollar.....

Okay okay I know for some of you, you are thinking "why is she talking about sun".  Well honestly we should be talking about the sun everyday but as spring is coming, more sunny days are coming it is time to talk about Sunscreen.

As one recent model put it "Sunscreen is poison" Gisele Bundchen picture Gisele Bundchen.  As much as I agree with her that conventional sunscreen is poison.  It is essential to buy and use sunscreen in your daily ritual for sunny days and not so sunny days because UVA/UVB rays get through not matter what.

What to avoid:  1,4-dioxane = can be found as PEG, polyethylene, polyethylene glycol, polyoxyethylene, sodium laureth sulfate, oxynol, ceteareth and oleth

Nitrosamines = MEA (Monoethanolmine), DEA (Diethanolamine), TEA (Triethanolamine), e.g. Cocamide MEA, Cocamide DEA, DEA-Cetyl Phosphate, DEA Oleth-3 Phosphate, Lauramide DEA Linoleamide MEA, Myristamide DEA, Oleamide DEA, Stearamide MEA, TEA Lauryl Sulfate.

PAHs (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) = petrolatum, coal tar, mineral oil, liquidum paraffinum, petroleum jelly or paraffin

Propylene/Butylene Glycol no other name found


FD&C Color Pigments

Parabens and Sulfates

Buy Sunscreen that is organic and contain Zinc Dioxide and Titanium Dioxide!

Here are some suggestions.  There so much more you can find just read the ingredients, that goes for everything you buy really.  It adds a little more time to your shopping I know, I know!  But you are worth it, this is the only body and life you have, treasure it!
