Avoid Sunblock Containing These Toxic Chemicals

Monday, April 29, 2013

Sunblock is one of those essential items that you can’t really be
without on a sunny day. Especially if you live in a tropical climate
that gets loads of sun every year. Wearing a hat, covering up with
clothing and applying sunscreen are the 3 best ways to avoid sunburn and
more permanent skin damage. But did you know that when you slap on the
sunscreen to protect yourself and your family, you might actually be
applying nasty chemicals that could do you harm?

Many commercial sunblocks contain a variety of chemicals that could have
varying effects on your health. These are currently approved for use
but many of them were studied back in the '70s and don’t have up-to-date
research available.

Here’s a list to help you avoid sunblock with these toxic chemicals.

Oxybenzone. This is one of the big nasties and over 50% of
sunscreens appear to have it in their ingredients list. The main
function of this toxic chemical is to absorb ultraviolet light from the
sun. When it is absorbed through the skin, however, Oxybenzone has the
potential to cause disruptions to body hormones and various types of
cell damage. Despite this, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has
approved this chemical for use, and states that it is safe to apply to
children over the age of 6 months.

Titanium dioxide. Possible DNA damage has been shown in studies
when this chemical is exposed to light. As an ingredient in sunscreen
it’s sure to see a lot of light exposure! Perhaps you don’t want to
risk this one.

Vitamin A (retinyl palmitate). Who would think that a vitamin
could be harmful? But that’s exactly what this strain of Vitamin A can
be in large doses. Studies on mice have shown that absorption of
retinyl palmitate can increase the risk of skin cancer when the skin is
exposed to the sun. There is no conclusive evidence for the effects of
this substance on humans.

Retinyl palmitate is easily absorbed by the skin. When absorbed it has
been found to result in increased levels of retinoic acid. The FDA list
retinoic acid as moderately toxic to body organs.

Otherwise known as Butyl-Methdiebenzoylmethane. This toxic chemical
is known to degrade in sunlight in just an hour. It can release free
radicals into the body, which we all know can be associated with cancer.
In small doses (3%) this chemical is sometimes noted as allowable in
sunscreens but we’ve included it here so you have the complete picture.

When choosing a sunscreen, make sure that besides a check for the above
ingredients, that you adhere to the following guidelines.

  • Always make sure you buy a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Protection
    from both UVA and UVB rays is mandatory if you want to give yourself the
    best chance of good sun protection.
  • Don’t be fooled by SPF labeling showing large numbers. A 50+
    sunscreen is about the most you should ever purchase. Higher numbers
    don’t mean large jumps in protection. The difference between a 50+
    sunscreen and one labeled 85+ for instance is just a couple of percent.
    It’s not really worth the extra money for a much stronger sunscreen.
    SPF only protects from UVA rays – as stated above make sure you always
    have broad-spectrum protection.
  • Try not to sustain any type of sunburn. As soon as your skin starts
    to turn pink it is becoming damaged. Even with sunscreen applied, you
    can still become burnt if you don’t remember to reapply after you swim
    or become sweaty. Sunscreen should be applied every two hours even if
    you are not swimming. Sunburn should be avoided at all costs.
  • Remember to use other ways to protect your skin from the sun.
    Wearing a shirt and a cap are great ways to reduce the risk of sunburn.
    Normal clothing provides around 15SPF just by being a barrier between
    the sun and your skin. Teach children from a very young age to always
    apply sunscreen, wear their hat outdoors and wear shirts that cover a
    lot of their skin. These habits will stand them in good stead for a
    lifetime of sun exposure.

Unprotected exposure to the sun can have far-reaching health
consequences. Melanoma is a very serious skin cancer and can cause
death if not detected and removed in the very early stages. You
absolutely should not stop using sunscreen because of a fear of toxic
chemicals. What you should do is research and make sure the brand you
choose to protect your family is free of any nasty substances. There
are many natural products on the market that offer high levels of sun

By checking your sunscreen ingredients beforehand you can feel
comfortable that your family is getting the best protection possible.
And don’t forget to wear those hats!
