Sunscreen Chemicals

What are you putting on your body? 

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) conducted a study that shows that MOST commercial American sunscreens contain chemicals that accelerate skin cancer.  This is absolutely unacceptable.  Check out this article and then click on the bottom link to check your sunscreen.  As usual, we use California Baby for all of us and yes, it is pricey, but don't you want to protect yourself and your children this summer???

Since we can't change the FDA and it's regulations, we need to be pro-active and change our buying habits...READ LABELS.  :)

This makes me soooo mad!!!!!!!!! I have been so good about wearing sunscreen for years to prevent reoccurrence of skin cancer but instead I may have been accelerating the skin cancer! Grrr!!!!!!! At least I've made better choices for this summer. I really like the California baby sunscreen too. We are on our 3rd bottle of the season, already! Thanks for sharing these links.
