The overwhelming majority of sunscreens on the market today are, well…….horrific. These are some of the most common ingredients found in sunscreens today…
- Oxybenzone- Detected in mother’s milk, widespread skin allergies, mimics estrogen in the body, linked to endometriosis, etc etc etc.
- Octinoxate (Octylmethoxycinnamate)- Again, found in mother’s milk, allergy concerns, and also acts as a hormone in the body.
- 4-MBC and 3-BC- I’m not even going to go here…you know that these numbers and letters together can’t possibly be good. Yes, I appreciate and love chemistry (and have a minor in chemistry…which doesn’t really mean much…lol), but I steer clear of things in my skincare products I cannot pronounce or do not know what they mean.
Mmmm hmmmmm. Not so good, eh?
