IMPORTANT: Wearing the Right Sunscreen

Wearing the wrong sunscreen could be lethal for you and the natural world. Chemical sunscreens leach into your body and have been found in blood, urine and breast milk. In Hawaii they have gone as far as banning certain sunscreens. The ban is for sunscreens containing oxybenzone and octinoxate. As this ewg.org article states, "these chemicals are found in many popular sunscreens sold in the U.S., and are linked to hormone disruption in people and the bleaching of coral reefs and coral death."

Here are a few brands we recommend:

Badger Balm - SPF 35 Clear Zinc Sport Sunscreen Cream

All Good Sport Sunscreen Lotion - Zinc Oxide

Neutrogena Pure & Baby Mineral Sunscreen
