Is Your Sunscreen Safe?
Posted by Shifrah on Monday, June 28, 2010
Vanicream sunscreen receives good ratings from the EWG.Staying protected from the sun is not as simple as slathering on any old sunscreen. While it's good that Americans seem to have become more and more conscious of the dangers of unprotected, prolonged sun exposure, we still have a long way to go in terms of using sunscreen products that don't possibly cause more harm than good.

Factors such as the inclusion of hormone-disrupting chemicals, ingredients like vitamin A that could actually speed the development of skin cancer, and over-stated claims about the products' effectiveness all contribute to a misinformed and misguided use of sunscreen.

As always, don't think that just because a product is out there, it's safe. In fact, the Food and Drug Administration has spent 32 years trying to set enforceable guidelines for consumer protection - all the while allowing products with questionable chemicals and product stability to be sold. In the meantime, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) has set forth some helpful information and a list of the safest sunscreens.

We're happy to report that Vanicream Sunscreen receives a good report from the EWG.

Be sure to check out the 2010 Sunscreen Guide to explore all the facts for yourself before heading out to the sun this summer.
