It’s that time of year again: time for the 2012 Safe Sunscreen list from Environmental Working Group. I look forward to seeing this new list each year, as I want to make sure I am still using some of the best and safest sunscreen products available. I have been using Badger lately, which scores a 1 and also Goddess Garden, which scores a 2. Both are low-toxicity products and among the best available.
The updated list for Summer 2012 includes all the usual information; a Hall of Shame of products to avoid at all costs, 9 surprising truths about today’s sunscreens, including the fact that there’s no consensus that sunscreens prevent skin cancer (my derma told me the same thing), and of course ratings for most sunscreens available on the market today. Do yourself a favor and check out the list ASAP so you make sure you are using a safe, non-toxic sunscreen and not something that will give you cancer.
