Sunscreen

Around about 2o years ago we hit the slops at sunshine for spring skiing......without sunscreen. Young and STUPID, catching rays all 5 of us had 2nd degree burns. To make matters worse we put Noxzema on our face (NEVER DO THIS) Under Doctors care we were told not to leave the house, I can't remember what he had us clean our face with to get rid of the Noxzema, but the whole experience was not good.

After that day I have never been without my sunscreen.

Question is what is in your sunscreen?

Could your sunscreen have ingredients that are linked to
Cancer, Developmental/reproductive toxicity, Allergies/immunotoxicity, Neurotoxicity, Endocrine disruption, Persistence and bioaccumulation, Organ system toxicity (non-reproductive), Irritation (skin, eyes, or lungs), Enhanced skin absorption, Contamination concerns, Occupational hazards, Biochemical or cellular level changes .

More than a million cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in the U.S. every year. Make sure your sunscreen is protecting you and not harming you.
