Aerosol sunscreen raises some deep concerns. Your skin is not only absorbing high levels of toxins like Oxybenzone, but you're also inhaling toxic particles that are going straight to your lungs.
Here are some of the toxins looming in conventional sunscreens:
Oxybenzone is destroying coral reefs. If it's destroying our coral reefs, think about what it's doing to you.
Retinyl Palmitate causes photosensitivity when exposed to the sun, so it's doing the exact opposite of what sunscreen is supposed to do. Yeah, I don't get it either.
Here are my favorite toxin free sunscreens!
