This past weekend I was able to stop into the Artisans Market put off by Planned Parenthood. I never know what to expect with these types of markets so I always keep a bit of cash in my pocket just incase I stumble upon a gem. And wouldn’t you know it I did, a homemade sun screen called SunCare by St. John’s Soap Works. This inexpensve sunscreen boasts all benefits that moms are looking for; water resistant, SPF 30, kid safe, no toxins, no alcohols or acids no PABA, not to mention its made with shea butter, olive, vitamin E and coconut butter all for 10$ (1/2 the price Goddess Garden Sunny Baby Natural Sunscreen I’ve been using and twice as much!). After reading all the good stuff in SunCare I thought I better check out my sun sunscreen and realized quickly that I had no idea what I was putting on my skin and that many sunscreens are simply inadequate. I found an article from the 2014 Environmental Working Group which outlines that most toxic sunscreens on the market today. Check out the top offenders, you might be surprised!
