....."most people don't get the high SPF they pay for: people apply about a quarter of the recommended amount. In everyday practice, a product labeled SPF 100 really performs like SPF 3.2, an SPF 30 rating equates to a 2.3 and an SPF 15 translates to 2. EWG Senior VP for Research Jane Houlihan likens it to snake oil sales: "Many sunscreens available in the U.S. may be the equivalent of modern-day snake oil, plying customers with claims of broad-spectrum protection but not providing it, while exposing people to potentially hazardous chemicals that can penetrate the skin into the body. When only 8 percent of sunscreens rate high for safety and efficacy, it's clear that consumers concerned about protecting themselves and their families are left with few good options."
Living in a chemical sludge, we do not understand the health implications of our exposures to complex mixtures of industrial compounds and pollutants. Little is known of most industrial chemicals and the government approves new chemicals for the market using computer models to predict if they are toxic to humans.
Ourselves, our children….
*A recent study found an average of 200 chemicals in umbilical cord blood from 10 newborn babies.
*Two recent studies highlight widespread exposure to the common sunscreen chemical oxybenzone, and associate concentrations of this chemical in pregnant women to lower birthweight in their daughters (Calafat 2008, Wolff 2008).
From Loss to Inspiration
After losing my brother (only 24 yrs.) in a fast 3 months to malignant melanoma skin cancer, I became very aware of the reality of “sun care,” however like most didn’t realize the markets usage of chemical UV blockers that contain a lot of toxic ingredients. More research, more awareness, it didn’t make sense to me to use chemicals to prevent skin cancer only to get another kind of cancer the abundance of chemicals.
After a better understanding in how mineral makeup works for sun protection, years of interest and investigation, I finally decided to pursue my own physical block sun care product.
In honor of my brother, you, a strong mission, and the help of an extremely reputable lab with richly educated chemists, GOOD DAY, SUNSHINE was born!

Did you know, Informed Beauty?
According to information on The Skin Cancer Foundation, 58 percent of people are concerned today about skin cancer. Yet only 11 percent of people use an SPF 15 or higher daily.”
Leading ingredients to avoid:
- Benzophenone (oxybenzone) – present in most sunscreens; easily absorbed through the skin; causes irritations and allergies; and is a hormone disrupter. Also used in many other personal care products.
- Padimate-O – found to cause DNA damage which can lead to cancer.
- Avobenzone – easily absorbed through the skin; degrades and becomes ineffective within one hour.
- Diethanolamine (DEA) - may lead to cancer causing compounds if the sunscreen contains nitrites; is often not disclosed on sunscreen labels.
