How safe is your sunscreen?

As summer approaches, we will be slathering ourselves in sunscreen.  While the little ones we know are covered in California Baby, what are the adults in their lives wearing and what chemicals do those lotions and potions contain?  The Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database answers this question.  The database is user friendly and is searchable by brand and product category.  You might be shocked to learn how toxic some popular products are, even ones from natural brands.  But never fear!  This site makes it easy to discern which products are toxin free.  Much to our relief many are from familiar brands available at your local stores.  So wherever you are and whatever you wear, you can now be safe for you and your wee ones.  Let the Sunshine in!
