Wrong. Many of those sunscreens that you just bought or are considering to buy, at those above mentioned places are nothing but toxic to you, the ones you are trying to protect, as well as the environment.
Many of the ingredients are damaging to the immune system, will turn into estrogens in the body which disrupt hormones, allergic reactions can occur most of all, the chemical burden to the organs can actually cause cancer. The chemicals break down with exposure to the sunlight and then absorb into the bloodstream.
Most of you want the higher SPF in your sunscreen. This is actually more harmful than beneficial. The SPF is actually more for blocking of UVB which causes redness and burning. You sit in the sun longer and don’t feel the damage done by the UVA. This is a much deeper penetrating ray and the lack of protection from your sunscreen, gets deeper into the skin and will cause aging, cancer and organ damage. The SPF should be no more than 50 and the healthier alternative is available at your health food store. These should be applied more often but there is no chemical burden to the body and will be more beneficial in the long run.
Babies and children should not be using any form of a chemical sunscreen due to its high toxic effect and only healthy sunscreens be applied.
