Throw Away Your Sunscreen!

Dump it now.

Yes, that's right! Toss your sunscreen in the trash if it contains any of these questionable chemicals:

  • Para amino benzoic acid (PABA)
  • Octyl salicylate (Octisalate)
  • Trolamine salicyclate
  • Benzophenone
  • Methyl Anthranilate
  • Avobenzone
  • Oxybenzone
  • Cinoxate
  • Padimate O
  • Ensulizole
  • Dioxybenzone
  • Phenylbenzimidazole
  • Homosalate
  • Sulisobenzone
  • Menthyl anthranilate (Meradimate)
  • Trolamine salicyclate
  • Octocrylene
  • Octybenzone
  • Octinoxate
  • Enzacamene
  • Bisimidazylate
  • Iscotrizinol
  • Amiloxate
  • Retinyl Palmitate

There have also been studies claiming that certain chemicals in sunscreen can penetrate into the skin and act as a photosensitizer, resulting in an increased production of free radicals. Free radicals can induce indirect DNA damage and potentially contribute to the increased incidence of malignant melanoma in sunscreen-users compared to non-users.

So if your sunscreen contains any of the chemicals I just revealed, I highly recommend you switch to a formula that is safe and healthy for your skin.

Zinc oxide is a mineral that’s found naturally in the earth’s crust. Zinc oxide has been used all over the world for over 75 years as a safe ingredient to help prevent excessive sun exposure.

Zinc oxide provides protection against the full UVA and UVB range. In fact, it is the only sun filtering agent that delivers such broad spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays.

Each ingredient in this outstanding product has been carefully chosen to specifically protect and nourish your skin. Unlike some chemical sunscreens that may absorb ultraviolet light, zinc oxide helps reflect and scatter away both UVA and UVB rays from your body.

Our zinc oxide sunscreen applies smoothly onto your skin with no white residue, unlike the old pasty zinc creams.

And for optimal protection, our zinc oxide sunscreen comes with antioxidants because they offer a second, "active" level of protection by boosting our natural immunity to sun damage.
