Got to celebrate this little man’s third birthday today. Too much fun was had by everyone and we are exhausted ☀️🦋💆♀️🤣. Don’t want to miss out on our clean swap for the day though! Sunscreen!!
Switch out your sunscreens to reef and human health friendly brands. There are several chemicals to look out for.
Oxybenzone is one of the worst offenders. This chemical has been found to bleach the coral reefs (this is really bad) and has been linked to endocrine and reproductive disruption (think autoimmune disorders and infertility) , cancer, skin irritation etc. Hawaii and Florida are in the process of banning sunscreens with oxybenzone. Octinoxate and several other chemicals in the pic below are also harmful and recommended to be avoided.
Mamavation gives a good breakdown on sunscreen ingredient safety and the safest sunscreen for pregnancy. Then I encourage you to think about if it’s not safe for you while pregnant than why would you use it when your not pregnant?? Check our the pics below 👇🏻
There are options for safer sunscreens. Do your research. I’m happy to help you check your sunscreens and other personal care products for safety. Just hit me up 🤙. #beautycounter #keeptahoeblue #knowbetterdobetter #autoimmunedisease
