Summer is getting close and we are starting to feel those sun rays on our body. With global warming being an actual thing (sorry Trump “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.”) we need to pay extra attention to our skin in order to protect it. What most of us do when we take our clothes off and run off into the ocean is apply sunscreen to prevent UV rays from damaging our skin. What we do not know is how dangerous sunscreen is to our body.
According to research from the EWG: Our review…shows that some sunscreen ingredients absorb into the blood, and some have toxic effects. Some release skin-damaging free radicals in sunlight, some act like estrogen and disrupt hormones, and several can cause allergic reactions and skin irritation. The FDA has not established rigorous safety standards for sunscreen ingredients. Sunscreens haven’t been regulated since 1978 in the USA, and the SPF factor only tells you how effective a sunscreen is against UVB rays which cause sunburn.
Here is a small list of effects post use of big sunscreen brands:
Absorb into the blood
Release free radicals in sunlight
Act like estrogen
Cause allergic reactions
Cause skin irritation
Have no rigorous safety standards
It is important to not become afraid of the sun, as it is essential to a healthy lifestyle. The sun is the most important source of Vitamin D3. Only 20 minutes of direct sunlight, can help your body naturally generates enough Vitamin D3 which naturally helps boost the immune system, help fight cancer and improve mood.
If you are going to be exposed to the sun for more than 20 min, we highly recommend that you start out of the sun from around noon to 2 pm as that is the peak of the strength of the rays. We also recommend you use natural sunscreen that is harm free for your body and the environment. Just think of all the chemicals you are releasing in the ocean or lakes when you apply chemically filled sunscreens.
That is why we have come up with our own natural argan oil based sunscreen which not only protects your skin but keeps it moisturized as well.
