Sunscreen Savvy

Many of you may already be aware that the things we put on our skin can enter the bloodstream, for better or worse.  Chemicals found in many sunscreens have been found to build up in the bloodstream at high enough levels to cause concern, and spark a pilot study by the USDA.  

Among the dozen chemicals commonly used in sunscreens not "Generally Regarded As Safe & Effective", Oxybenzone, stands out as a major offender for a few reasons.  It is highly allergenic, causing an allergic reaction in 70% of participants who did a skin patch test.  Oxybenzone was absorbed in the body at concentrations 50-100 times higher than the other chemicals tested (avobenzone and octocrylene). 

Also known as benzophenone, it is a potential hormone disruptor, linked with lower testosterone levels in adolescent boys, shorter pregnancies and disrupted birth weights in babies.  A Swiss study found oxybenzone, or one of the four other chemicals in 85% of breastmilk of nursing mothers.  It is still in widespread use, estimated to be in 2/3 of all chemical sunscreens, according to the Environmental Working Group (EWG) summary.  

Moreover, oxybenzone and octinoxate are harmful to the environment.  Sunscreens with these chemicals are banned in Hawaii, Key West, and other places because they are known to cause coral reef bleaching.  Coral reefs are havens for a multitude of marine life.  Like rainforests of the sea, they are of vital importance to the health and diversity of the oceans.  According to NOAA, 4000 to 6000 tons of sunscreen enter the reefs every year!   Not only are these chemicals toxic to reefs, they are toxic to fish and aquatic plants.   

GET SKIN SAFE and REEF SAFE

Experts still agree that it is so important to protect your skin from damaging rays.  There are alternatives to the questionable chemicals!  Physical sunscreens using Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide act as a shield to protect skin from the sun, versus chemical sunblocks which act as a sponge.  Don't worry about turning white as a sheet, mineral sunscreens have come a long way. They become virtually clear once rubbed into skin!

Find safe sunscreens from Badger on sale this month! Plus, we have other oxybenzone-free SPF lotions and sprays from Elemental Herbs, with tinted options from Intelligent Elixers and Pacifica for a sunny glow without damaging rays.
