With the rates of melanoma (the deadliest form of skin cancer) continuing to surge across the United States, protecting yourself and your family from the dangerous effects of sun exposure has never been more important.
A whopping 80 percent of the 1,700 sunscreen products that the Environmental Working Group reviewed this year contain harmful ingredients or offer inadequate protection against dangerous ultraviolet radiation. So before you hit the beach or go outside this summer, know what is in your sunscreen.

It’s a scary reality that the vast majority of sunscreens stocked on American store shelves aren’t as safe as most of us think they are. Many simply do not provide enough UVA protection and some contain potentially hazardous chemicals such as oxybenzone, a hormone disruptor, or retinyl palmitate, a form of vitamin A linked to skin damage.
I have become totally addicted to using the free app that the Environmental Working Group created called Skin Deep. It lets me see the safety scores of the sunscreen products that I use on myself and my family. The scores are ranked from 1 to 10, 1 being the safest product and 10 being the most harmful.

I am so glad to be a consultant with Beautycounter; it is our mission to get safe products in the hands of everyone. Beautycounter’s All Over Protect sunscreen scores a 1 on the Skin Deep app, it may be something to consider for you and your family…I know I love it!
Remember not all sunscreens are created equal.
