Interesting Facts About Synthetic Sun Ingredients:
Recently released scientific studies by Switzerland’s Institute of Pharmacology and Toxicology, conducted in 2001, prove a link between synthetic sunscreens and hormonal disturbances in the body. The chemical compounds in synthetic sunscreens have been found to accumulate in body fats and in breast milk, and, by mimicking the effects of estrogen, can induce undesirable hormonal changes.
Synthetic Sunscreen Chemicals with estrogen mimicking effects:
- 4-Methyl-Benzylidencamphor(4-MBC), Oxybenzone, Benzophenone-3
- Homosalate(HMS), Octyl-methoyl-cinnamates(OMC)
- Octyl-Dimethyl-Para-Amino-Benzoic Acid(OD-PABA)
