Listed below are links to weblogs that reference How Does Your Sunscreen Measure Up? Pick Your Poison. Environmental Working Group's New Report on 952 Brands.:



I found another great mineral based, all natural sunblock that I've used this year and I love it - it's called Mexitan. It's even biodegradable so you can use it in eco-parks.

Another item we use is UV protective clothing. Surfers have used rash guard shirts for years but it's just recently that the SPF 150+ protection these shirts provide while you're in the water has been discovered by the rest of the beach going population. They're a great way to protect your skin without sunscreen - you even save on your plastic bottle consumption!


The fact is, is that all sunscreen chemicals break down in sunlight. That's why frequent application is necessary for all brands. And if any of the chemicals were truly unsafe, they would not receive FDA approval.

Sunscreen should be worn every day - I've never heard a dermatologist (including my own) say otherwise.
