Many sunscreens are made up of chemicals that can be absorbed by your skin and may be toxic. Among them are estrogenic toxins that may affect reproductive health and development. In addition, sunscreens may harm delicate coral reefs, so you may want to think about using natural and biodegradable sunscreens when you’re on the beach. Natural sunscreens often contain plant-based ingredients such as shea butter, jojoba oil and coconut oil that naturally provide UV protection — and you can pronounce these ingredients too! www.pristineplanet.com is an online source we found that allows you to check out different natural, organic and biodegradable sunscreen products.
