Many sunscreens contain harmful ingredients, some even contain possible carcinogens. Sun protect is very important and thankfully there are many natural options out there that are safe and effective. One thing to remember with natural sunscreens, the safest ones have non-nano zinc oxide. Nano-particles are very small particles, these particles are used in sunscreen to make it clear. The problem is the safety of these are questionable and are best to avoid, so these sunscreens will not be totally clear but are safe and effective.
