I’ve chanced upon this article about sunscreens, and it sort of alarmed me. With the plethora of products for sun protection, apparently, not all are effective enough as they claim to be.
According to environmental watchdog Environmental Working Group, they have checked 783 sunscreen products with SPF 15 and above, and claim that 84% of them don’t really do their job. Wait. 783 x 84 % = *gasp*.
Going back, they came up with the 10 best products , and one of them is mineral-based.
* Badger SPF 30
* Peter Thomas Roth Titanium Dioxide Sunblock SPF 30
* Lavera Sun Screen Neutral SPF 40
* UV Natural Baby SPF30+ Broad Spectrum Sunscreen
* Vanicream Sunscreen Sport SPF 35
* UV Natural Sport SPF 30 & Very Water Resistant
* Colorescience Colorescience Shake It Up Sunforgettable SPF 30
* Mustela Bebe High Protection Sun Lotion SPF 50
* Obagi Nu-Derm Physical UV Block Step Six SPF 32
Although Peter Thomas Roth has a mineral-based suncreen, I’m not sure if what they have mentioned is the liquid kind, or the mineral-loose-powder kind. Nonetheless, it’s good to know that a mineral-based sunblock is acknowledge not only as safe to use, but also among the best, and safest to use. After all, sun protection is one of the major issues nowadays, with the increasing skin cancer rates.
