Which Sunscreen should I choose?

ADULT SUNSCREEN|

There are numerous studies that show chemical UV filters generate free radical damage, endocrine disruption, damage to your hormones and DNA damage at a molecular level. WE have the choice in what we use on our skin and choosing NOT to use chemical sunscreen is such an easy and important decision to make. 

Not only are these sunscreens toxic for our health, in a 2016 study, a team of international scientists found that a common chemical in many sunscreen lotions is highly toxic to juvenile corals and other marine life. Oxybenzone.

Hawaii is the first state in the US to ban the sale of sunscreen containing the coral-harming chemicals oxybenzone and octinoxate as of 2021. Oxybenzone is listed as one of the main (ACTIVE) ingredients in many chemical based sunscreens on supermarket and chemists shelves.

So here is my list of natural sunscreen alternatives to consider. From plastic free options, facial moisturisers with SPF to sunscreen for the whole body.
