- 75% OF SUNSCREENS ARE TOXIC - WHAT TO DO INSTEAD
You, SPFs, and Vitamin D
With our reluctance to get any sun exposure we’re risking eliminating our greatest source for making vitamin D in our bodies. When you wear sunblock, your body’s ability to produce vitamin D in the skin declines.
For example, if you wear sunblock SPF 8, you reduce your body’s ability to make vitamin D by 90%. If you choose a sunblock with a SPF of 30, you reduce your body’s ability by 99%.
IF YOU MUST USE SUNSCREEN, MINERAL BASED SUNSCREENS ARE BEST:
