Non-toxic sunscreens

by | Jul 2, 2018

British Beauty Council spotted a great story in Goop this week about non-toxic sunscreens.

Not so much those rare breeds that don’t harm the environment (coral reefs & marine life), as the best mineral protectors. In this story the case is made for mineral over chemical screening, because mineral filters sit ‘cleanly’ on the surface of the skin, rather than being absorbed by it, & lists the pluses & pitfalls to watch for within this category. Goop’s red flag ingredients include pthalates, sodium laureate sulphate & fragrance, & they recommend avoiding ‘mineral based’ sunscreens because these are inevitably a mix of minerals & chemicals.
