This brilliant idea brought to you by Megan Pangborn, mom of 3, in Denver, CO!
Summer isn’t even here yet and we still go through our fair share of sunscreen.
Although protecting my family from the sun is my biggest concern, I am also very concerned with the chemicals in the sunscreens (especially since many of us wear it every day.)
That is why I found this site very useful: EWG Sunscreen 2011 Here you can look up the sunscreen that you use and see how it scores on UVB and UVA protections, UVA/UVB balance, sunscreen stability and any health concerns they may have uncovered. There are quite a few sunscreens that rank well on the site.
I ended up landing on Vanicream after discussing with my dermatologist. You can usually find this in the pharmacist section of your local drugstore, not with the other sunscreen lotions.
What I love is that it’s free of any additives including Dyes, Masking Fragrances, Parabens, Formaldehyde, Preservatives, Fragrance and Lanolin! It’s nice to have something on your face that doesn’t have any smell too.
What is your suncreen of choice?
