At the Beautycounter event they spoke about how their products are approved by EWG.org as well as statistics about how lax the FDA is about approving products that the UK and Europe won't approve. Definitely check out the Beautycounter website for more information. This event made me start to think about all the products I use on my body daily that might not be the best for me. One of which is sunscreen.
Since it is summertime and we are slathering on the sunscreen and I wanted to share the EWG.org ratings. I know I have been using the Coppertone Spray suntan lotion forever because of the ease, but not anymore! Spray sunscreens have inhalation risks according to the website. They also list what you should and shouldn't be looking for in your sunscreen. Which includes...
- No spray sunscreen
- No super-high SPFs
- No oxybenzone
- No retinyl palmitate
- No combined sunscreen/bug repellents
- No sunscreen powders or towelettes
- No tanning oils
