I’ve known that sunscreens can be problematic so I get the less toxic kind. Planning for summer I bought Alba Hawaiian on Amazon thinking it must be less toxic than the store brands and most of the Alba have a good rating. After all, it says it has no parabens and no phthalates but I didn’t make sure I got the right Alba. There are so many different ones to get. After I got them I looked on EWG Skin Deep to check their rating. Yikes! Look at it! It scored a 5. It’s not the worst but not the best either.
Yesterday, at Costco I found this Honest brand sunscreen. Right there in the store I pulled out my phone and looked up the rating to see that it had a rating of 1! You can’t beat the prices at Costco so I got a 2 pack and now I will feel better knowing I have a less toxic sunscreen to use on my girls this summer.
Have you checked your sunscreen on EWG.org? Don’t make the same mistake I did. Check the rating before you buy it.
