Sunscreen: What's actually in? What does it really do to you? What impact does it have on the environment?

I’ve never really worn sunscreen, maybe a few times on holiday but can’t say I’ve been on many of them over the years so it wasn’t anything that I gave much of a thought to until recently

Like most people I’m sure, my understanding of sunscreen was... when you’re out in the sun you should wear sunscreen to protect you from harmful rays... helps prevent skin cancer etc etc
I did what I would normally do with any other product, went online to the major places (you know the ones) and started to compare big brand names, what was on offer... 3 for 2!!! oooh what a barg!!

HOLD ON ✋🏼 🛑 STOP

Let’s do this properly shall we

I went back to basics and had a really good look for myself and found loads of different articles and videos explaining the risks not only to the wearer but to the environment as well.

I was shook!

I couldn’t believe it, surely this can’t be allowed!
There was more to this than I thought and I had to share it...

It’s up to you what you do from here

Have a look what I found so far... 👀
