The Best Healthy, Non-Toxic Sunscreens
By Marilee Nelson |
Even though sunscreens do block Vitamin D absorption (which we need - read more about healthy sun protection!), they still have their place in keeping us healthy and preventing skin cancer. However, most commercial sunscreens out there are just loaded with harmful, hormone-disrupting chemicals, which studies have shown can negate their protective benefits and actually cause certain types of cancer1.
If you want to dig into this topic, or learn more information on healthy sunscreen use, take a look at EWG's 8 Little-Known Facts About Sunscreens special report.
A decade ago it was hard to find good quality, non-toxic sunscreens, and the ones that were available were pricey. However, today there are many more healthy choices out there for the whole family!
