Our local TV station published a story on its website yesterday about another recent study examining the dangerous, potentially cancer causing, chemicals found in most suntan lotions.
I live in Florida..so Ugh.
Go ahead and click HERE if you want to read the article, but I can save you the time. I’m betting your sunscreen is on their long list of products to toss in the trash. (Mine sure were)
But fear not, there’s good news!
My friend recommended a free, super user friendly, i-phone app that allows you to type in the name of products you use and it will automatically let you know if they’re healthy for you and your family.
Click HERE to be directed to EWG, (Environmental Working Group’s) highly informative website which includes an easy to understand GUIDE FOR SUNSCREENS. Right now, if you make a $40 donation to this organization, they will send you a sampler mini-set of suntan lotions to try.
Their phone app is found by searching for EWG.
Tomorrow I am heading out to buy all new sunscreens for my husband and me. Thanks to EWG’s rating system, I know just what brands I’m looking for:
All Good and Badger.
You’d better believe it’s going to cost quite a bit more than the stuff we’ve previously been using, but at the end of the day what good is sun protection if it can ultimately make you sick?
Slather up safely my friends and enjoy your (hopefully sunny) week-end. My stack-o-reading includes what is being described as “the definitive article” on the origins of Covid by former NYT science staff writer, Nicholas Wade.
I have a feeling I know where the breadcrumbs lead..so think I’ll wait until after 5 o’clock.. 😩🍷
