Safety Favourites - Sunscreen
The poll question this week has really got some of you mommies out there talking... Thanks to Jana who sent me this link, www.ewg.org, where you can see how the sunscreen that you are currently using is ranked? I was SHOCKED to see that the Aveeno Baby Sunscreen I was using was rated a 7 (avoid) as it contains a synthetic estrogen that can be absorbed into the skin and that it's SPF rating of over 50 is misleading - that anything over 50 isn't accurate. Thanks to all of you who are voting on your favs, the suggestions and what not.
Check out this site to see how your sunscreen rates - I know that I will be changing brands immediately!
