Load Up Your Kids With Sunscreen Chemicals

Every year is the same, reports about how hazardous are.

I worry most about my children. Their young skin is so sensitive to the sun I need to protect them. At the same time I don’t want to use products that filled with harmful chemicals.

This is from the MiTime newsletter:

The Environmental Working Group’s investigation of nearly 1,000 brand-name sunscreen products finds that 4 out of 5 don’t provide protection and/or contain chemicals that may pose health hazards. Some of the worst offenders are leading brands like Coppertone, Banana Boat and Neutrogena.
Many millions of cases of skin cancer are diagnosed worldwide each year. Yet due to huge legislative gaps, companies in many countries are free to claim – but not provide – broad spectrum protection.
Stay safe and keep your children safe by switching to the risk-free, organic alternative: Reflect Outdoor Balm.
You may need to apply it a little more frequently. But what’s that small inconvenience for the reassurance of knowing that you’re protecting precious young skin from damaging rays in a safe, non-intrusive way?

    [...] What sun protection factor (SPF) should I use? Use sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15. The higher the SPF, the better. Puchasing a natural sunscreen or use sun protective clothing is a very good way to avoid unnecessary chemical exposure from sunscreens. [...]
