Just in Time for Summer:
Healthy, Edible, Organic, Anti-Aging Sunscreen!
We are excited to announce that we’ve taken a good thing and made it even better! Good Day Sunshine Sunshield has been reformulated to include a non-nano zinc oxide!
What does that mean? Sunscreens are either micronized, nano, or non-nano. Good Day Sunshine contains non-nano, non-micronized zinc oxide to absolutely ensure that its particles are not absorbed through the skin or into the bloodstream.
The latest research reveals that many sunscreen ingredients are suspected or known carcinogens and/or hormone disrupters. (Some ingredients to watch out for are: diethanolamine, triethanolamine (DEA, TEA), padimate-o, octyl dimethyl PABA, benzophenone, oxybenzone, homosalate, octyl-methoxycinnamate (octinoxate), salicylates, and parabens.)
Many sunscreens on the market have mutagenic and free radical generating properties--known cancer contributors. For example, the chemical ingredients Benzophenone or Oxybenzone are best for protecting against both UVA and UVB rays. Unfortunately, these chemicals are NOT the best choices for your health. Benzophenone is a powerful free radical generator activated by ultraviolet light. These free radicals could initiate a reaction that may ultimately lead to melanoma and other skin cancers. A major red flag: younger children have a lower body weight and a have not fully developed their processes of elimination. Yikes!
And perhaps a more disturbing finding is that many commonly used sunscreen chemicals have strong estrogenic actions that may interfere with normal sexual development and cause reproductive problems. Plus, chemicals in sunscreens can also cause skin irritation and rashes.
With a brother who passed away from malignant melanoma, I am very aware of the latest research and pursue only the safest options for our clients and their families. Skin cancer continues to be a growing problem and the importance of maintaining a healthy barrier, strengthening the skin's immune system and providing key tools in the repair process of DNA and sun damage cannot be over-stated.
The zinc oxide used in Good Day Sunshine is the only FDA approved sunscreen active ingredient that is safe for use on babies under the age of 6 months. Additionally, our formula is petrochemical-free, edible, organic, environmentally sustainable, and full of antioxidant rich oils that combat signs of aging and boost sun protection. Good Day Sunshine is a definite must-have to keep your skin youthful and damage-free during the summer months.
