Sunscreen- beware!

As you head out to the beach make sure the sunscreen you use does not contain oxybenzone, a harmful chemical that has been proven to cause cancer when it comes in contact with the sun. What an oxymoron- suncreen that causes cancer! Just another indication that we must each take personal responsibility for our health.

A recent study by the Environmental Working Group found that 97% of Americans contain toxic sunscreen chemicals in their bodies!

Please read your products before buying them and avoid harmful chemicals that put a strain on your health.Other chemicals to watch out for include: parabens in lotion, sodium laureth sulfate, which is in any product that bubbles and also in kid's toothpaste, and sodium laurel sulfate, which is also used to create a foam.
Please enhance your awareness and choose health for you and your family.
