It is difficult to find a sunscreen that is not toxic because most of the commercialized versions are loaded with additives and preservatives harmful to health.
So this type of sunscreen actually causes cancer instead of preventing it. These chemicals are absorbed through the skin and end up damaging the liver, the organ responsible for neutralizing the chemicals in the body.
For this reason, it is necessary to choose a sunscreen that is as pure and natural as possible. If you are looking for an alternative to commercial sunscreens we present a homemade sunscreen very easy to realize.
Can you find a non-toxic sunscreen at your pharmacy or supermarket? Probably not, since most of the commercialized versions are full of toxic additives and preservatives.
