Sunblock stripes

1) Myth:  Sunscreens are toxic.  The most common unblocking ingredients, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are probably safer than most of your cleansers and cosmetics.

2) Myth: Organic is better.  Actually sunscreens are divided into 2 groups.  So-called chemical sunscreens absorb the sun’s rays (Oxybenzone or Avobenzone).  Physical sunscreens block or deflect the sun (Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide).  Both forms are very effective and are much safer than sunburns.  

3) Myth: Sunscreens disrupt body hormones.  This is not true as there is simply not enough absorption.

4) Truth:  Sunscreens can also moisturize, and some contain peptides and other products to nourish your skin.  

5)Truth: A few people are allergic to certain components in some sunscreens, but most can use zinc oxide products.
