Mineral-Based Sunscreens

Mineral-Based Sunscreens Are Best

Here’s a link to an article on NewHope360 discussing people’s recently transitioning interest from traditional chemical-laden topical sunscreens (sunblocks) to more natural mineral-based sunscreens. Topics touched upon in this article include:

  • Sunscreen toxicities
  • The fact that traditional topical sunscreen chemicals really don’t do a good job of blocking UVA rays
  • The Food and Drug Administration’s delay in releasing the sunscreen monograph intended to clear up consumer misconceptions about sunscreens and SPF, and address misleading claims on labels

This article also contains a few sunscreen suggestions and a link to the Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) recommended sunscreens. You can read it here:
