Did you know?

Sun Screen ingredients like: oxybenzone, homosalate, and octinoxate work by absorbing UV light, but they also penetrate the skin, enter the bloodstream (and in some cases, breastmilk). They also act as endocrine disrupters, interfering with normal hormone function. 

They can also create damaging free radicals in the skin-the very thing they are supposed to protect us from. There is a better choice.
 
Mineral-based sunblock utilizes titanium dioxide and zinc oxide- two FDA-approved sunscreen ingredients that block both UVB and UVA rays, do not enter the bloodstream, do not have hormone-disrupting properties, and do not create free radicals. They work by reflecting UV rays away from the skin, preventing them from penetrating the skin in the first place.
