A safer sunscreen for your family || by Erin Finch


Did you know that our skin is our largest organ and is capable of absorbing 60% of what we put on it?

That means that what we put on our skin including personal care products like make-up, lotions, soaps, shampoo, sunscreen, deodorant etc. all matter just as much as what we put in our mouth when it comes to building health and reducing toxic load on our bodies.


It can be overwhelming emotionally and financially depending on your budget, to try and swap out all your current products for newer safer ones all at one time which is why I don’t recommend anyone to do that unless they have the means to do so. I recommend instead to start with one product at a time, preferably a product you use often.

This time of year, sunscreen is a product we all should be using regularly when we are out in the sun. So, today I am recommending a safer sunscreen that I have found and love.

The product that I currently use is a brand called Badger and can be found on Amazon or at the Wellness Center of Paris. I originally purchased mine on Amazon, and recently learned that it was sold locally in our area.

It is not only safe, but cost friendly compared to a lot of other safe products that are much more expensive!

For more information on the negative health effects of most commercial sunscreen brands as well as more help on what to specifically look for when trying to buy a safer brand, I found this article to be extremely helpful!

If hearing this information stresses you out because it feels like one more thing you have to do to be healthy, then please go read one of my recent posts on how I feel about that here. No need to stress. Just keep educating yourself is all I ask and make small steps to creating an overall health lifestyle at a realistic pace you can handle.
