When you see too many ingredients in sunscreen that are really not necessary, they are there just because they are cheap to make!

 

What to avoid in sunscreen?

Chemical sunscreens

Oxybenzone and Octinoxate sunscreens are a health safety and environmental concern. Chemical sunscreens are potentially harmful to people, coral reefs, or the planet! After they found out that an estimate of between 6,000 - 14,000 tons of sunscreen ends up in the world’s coral reefs every year, causing irreparable harm. Chemical sunscreen not only harms public health but the health of the corals and other marine life. 

 

In 2018, Hawaii became the first state to ban the sale of two common chemicals causing harm to marine life. The city of Key West, Florida followed in 2021.

It is not enough to get sunscreen without oxybenzone or octinoxate, they could still contain other chemical active sun screening agents and toxic ingredients such as: 

  • Triclosan 

  • Parabens 

  • Octocrylene

  • Octisalate 

  • Homosalate 

  • Enzacamene 

  • Microbeads (plastic) 

  • Para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) 

  • Trolamine salicylate 

  • 4-Methylbenzylidene-camphor (4MBC) 

  • Nanoparticles – zinc and titanium dioxide 

  • Phenoxyethanol 

  • Chloroxylenol

  • Avobenzone 

  • Potassium sorbate 

  • Petrolatum/mineral oil 

  • Artificial fragrance

Greenwashinh Marketing claims:

“Reef-safe” or “Reef-friendly” are unregulated terms in the US government. Since reef safe is a marketing tool, there aren’t any reef safe certifications recognized by the government.

FDA created a standard to classify safer sunscreen, it is called: 

(GRASE) generally recognized as safe and effective and not misbranded.

Sunscreen with insect repellent:  According to FDA they are not GRASE.

​Which are the safest sunscreens?

✅  FDA Approved sunscreens

FDA approves only 2 active ingredients:  zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. They are the active ingredients in mineral-based sunscreens, considered generally Regarded As Safe and Effective.

All the other 16 active ingredients commonly used in sunscreens are classified as chemical. 

On this page, you will find only the safest sunscreens on the market with mineral FDA-approved protection as the active ingredient and Certified Organic natural inactive ingredients.

☀️ Active ingredients:  FDA has approved only 2 SPF ingredients: non-nano Zinc Oxide and Titanium dioxide.

I prefer Zinc Oxide because it has been proven to have superior sun protection properties: Zinc Oxide is thought the only active ingredient that is able to provide full protection for both UVA and UVB, making this ingredient the best active ingredient in a mineral sunblock. 
​🍃Inactive Ingredients:  the best inactive ingredients are certified organic ingredients such as organic sunflower oil, organic beeswax, organic chamomile, organic calendula, organic green tea, organic cocoa butter, and sunflower vitamin E. 

 

Which is the best sunblock formula?

✅  Sunscreens in cream, lotion, tin, and stick. 

Avoid spray or powder sunscreen: they are highly toxic when inhaled. especially for your kids.

Spray or powder sunscreens are considered toxic for the lungs and environment, nanoparticles can cause lung damage when inhaled.  When a neighbor on the beach is spraying their sunblock near you, RUN away!
