Summer must-have: Clean Sunscreen

Sunscreen is the foundation of sun-safe practices and suncare protocols, so the recent news that some sunscreen ingredients can soak into the bloodstream may be causing concern.  Later this year, the Food and Drug Administration plans to deliver more official guidance around the safety of these ingredients. In the meantime, a lot of people are left wondering what to do this summer.
For now, the F.D.A.’s proposed rule suggests that sunscreens with para-aminobenzoic acid and trolamine salicylate  should not be given the designation “generally regarded as safe and effective” and sunscreens that rely on zinc oxide and/or titanium oxide should be “generally regarded as safe and effective.”
A lot of people resist zinc and titanium-based formulas because the oxides aren’t absorbed and, instead, sit on top of the skin where they’re noticeable. These products can also be difficult to apply, which could influence how consistently they’re used.
If you’re looking to support healthy suncare habits, here are three clean sunscreens that are easy to apply, won’t draw attention to themselves and still deflect harmful rays available through Wellevate, our on-line vitamin and supplement store.
