Did you know that In 2019, the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) – found that only two ingredients, zinc oxide, and titanium dioxide, could be classified as safe and effective?
Unfortunately, what we suspected is being confirmed in scientific research, these chemical sunscreen ingredients are contributing to…
- lowered testosterone in males
- increasing cancer risk
- thyroid hormone production
- estrogen imbalance
- breaking down into toxins in our environment
- killing marine life
European Commission has published preliminary opinions on the safety of three primarily used UV filters:
oxybenzone | homosalate | octocrylene
It found that the levels of two of them were not safe in the amounts at which they are currently used.
Hundreds of sunscreens manufactured in the U.S. use these ingredients at concentrations that far exceed the European Commission’s recommendations.
The ingredients oxybenzone, octinoxate, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate, and avobenzone are all systemically absorbed into the body after only one use.
Studies also found that they could be detected on the skin and in the blood weeks after no longer being used! Even more, studies detected many sunscreen ingredients in breast milk and urine samples. Read more about these studies here.
