Nature’s Sun Protection

sunscreenProper sun protection is an essential part of our daily beauty regimen. But choose your sunscreen wisely. Most sunscreens on the market contain ingredients that can have adverse effects on your health. These ingredients can penetrate the skin barrier in relatively large amounts, and therefore, have side effects that are more than skin-deep.

The most common of these potentially hazardous ingredients is oxybenzone or 4-MBC. Not only does it trigger allergic reactions, but it is also can disrupt the body’s hormonal balance.

Many sunscreens also use vitamin A in their formulations because it is an anti-oxidant that slows skin aging. This is effective for products such as night creams that are used indoors. However, results from a study conducted by the FDA showed that vitamin A (labeled as retinyl palmitate or retinol) had photocarcinogenic properties. The study showed that when used on skin exposed to sunlight there was a possibility in the development of cancerous tumors. (NTP 2009)
