Mineral Sunscreens: Good for You, Good for the Planet

  • Topic Info:Natural sunscreens have always been the better choice.

    But, it's now known to be even more important to avoid chemical sunscreens in light of recent research indicating that oxybenzone, a harmful chemical used in many conventional sunscreens, is absorbed directly into the bloodstream.

    Oxybenzone has been associated with an increased risk of hormone disruption and closely tied to endometriosis and fertility problems in both adults and children.

    Mineral sunscreens are a viable natural alternative.

    Listen in as Nova Covington, Founder and CEO of Goddess Garden Organics, joins host Andrea Donsky to explain the dangers of conventional sunscreens, specific chemicals to watch for, and which natural sunscreens are good for both your body and the planet.
