Suntan Lotion and Safer Choices

Sunscreen: A very talked about subject as it should be since the sun is baking these ingredients into your skin. Many of these ingredients are hormone and endocrine disruptors and are especially dangerous to young children whose bodies and brains are still developing. Some sunscreens have active ingredients such as: octinoxate, homosalate, octisalate, octocrylene, oxybenzone, phthalates, parabens, sodium laureate sulfate and fragrance and you should be on the lookout for these ingredients. Many of them are also known carcinogens.

This is very concerning to us at GLG and we want you healthy and safe and putting the best ingredients on your skin as possible. To help sort through this very complicated sunscreen road map The Environmental Working Group(EWG) puts out a sunscreen guide every year. There is great info here and we wanted to share it with you Check out their guide
