And as you know, what you put on the skin can be absorbed into the blood, so don't expose your kids to this.

In our email from Monday we talked all about the dangers of normal sunscreens. The facts are the mass-produced sunscreens you’ll find sold on the market are filled with problematic ingredients. And that’s why Dr. Wiggy and his wife Emily created a specialized ingredient that can be used to make a healthy and effective DIY sunscreen...
Sunscreen is one of those products that most people believe they absolutely must have when they go outside. Well, that’s both true and untrue. Sunscreen can certainly help to protect us from the intense rays of the sun. But, some sunscreen is actually quite dangerous. And, in fact, it could exacerbate the problems that we think we’re avoiding when we put on sunscreen...
Summer is in full swing and it’s sunscreen season! There is plenty of information out there about the questionable ingredients in most commercial sunscreens. The picture isn’t pretty.
There has been a lot of buzz in the media lately about natural mineral sunscreens and alleged ineffectiveness.
We all want our families to be as healthy as possible. That’s a given. As parents we spend tons of energy, time and research on finding the BEST and most perfect products for our families. It’s so wonderful to have so much information available in our connected world, but also SO overwhelming.
I’ve mentioned before about the lack of regulation and standards in the personal care products industry, but I think it’s really important to keep talking about it. Unfortunately, too many families trust products as safe just because they’re on store shelves and say they are “non-toxic”.
Toxic Free, Quick and Easy, Sunscreen Recipe:
Step 1: Scoop 1 cup of coconut oil into a microwave safe container or in a pot and melt into a sticky consistency over very low heat. If microwaving then about 5 seconds will do. If coconut oil is not completely solid it does not need to be heated. Stir well to achieve equal consistency.
Step 2: Measure 1-3 tablespoons (scoop included) of zinc oxide (the more you use the better the barrier) and add to the coconut oil.
Step 3: Stir well. Place Place into a sealable container. If the solution solidifies durring storage then run under warm water and stir well before applying.
We recommend putting on protective gloves and mask to avoid inhaling the zinc oxide powder. The product has not been tested for SPF strength so any homemade sunscreen should be used with caution. This should generally be used as a day to day shield rather than an all-day full-sun block. If using during continual sun exposure then be sure to reapply every 30 minutes. Test on small part of body first to ensure no irritation occurs. Product is for topical use only. Keep out of reach of children.
