is your sunscreen safe?

a recent study by the Environmental Working Group found that sunscreen products sold in the US are not required to live up to their promised claims or contain safe, effective ingredients. Guidelines in the US are much more relaxed than in Europe and the FDA has not changed its guidelines in 30 years!  This pertains to the safety of the chemical ingredients and the actual protection the product provides.  Read about it here on Fab Over Fifty.  Here are some that are considered safe and effective:

Aveeno Baby Natural Protection Sunblock, SPF 50

Kiss My Face 100% Natural Pink Sunstick

Elemental Herbs Sunscreen Sport, SPF 20

California Baby No Fragrance Sunscreen, SPF 30

Marie Veronique Organics Moisturizing Face Screen, Light Tint, SPF 30
