Sunscreen – What Works, What’s Safe | Paradise Found

Consider this a public service announcement. ;-)

It’s a conundrum; sunburns are bad for our skin, but many sunscreens are full of chemicals.

In a new investigation of 783 name-brand sunscreens, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) found widespread evidence that many products on the market are not safe and effective, including one of every eight high-SPF sunscreens that does not protect from UVA radiation.

Read all about it and find the safest and best sunscreen here.

    Hmph. I haven’t had a chance to read it all yet but I knew that the increase in sunscreen usage and the rise in skin cancer could not be simply coincidental. Hmph. Time to go find some California Baby stuff, I guess. I’m pretty sure that pink bottle of stuff I have is not on the safe list! :) And to think that I used to be required to slather on that blue or purple tinted gunk on the kids in day care! Yikes!!!

    Interesting. As a person with light blue eyes and fair skin, and with fair skinned children with red headed complexions, we have always used sunscreens. I had read that the higher SPFs really don’t do anything more than the lower ones–they just put more chemicals on your skin.
    I am going to look for Badger.
