Sunscreen More Deadly Than Sun Exposure?

Before you run out into the warm weather (finally!) and get sunburned, check out this Dr Mercola article. He is THE MAN when it comes to natural health. His article questions what is worse, sun exposure or sunscreen? The consensus is that most sunscreens use far more toxic chemicals that could be more deadly than the risk of cancer from sun exposure.

Natural Sunlight Is Far and Away the Best Way to Get Your Vitamin D! There is a delicate balance depending on your skin type. You need the good rays (UVB) for healthy Vitamin D production, but you don’t want to stay in the sun too long and get burned by the damaging rays (UVA).

My favorite take-away is the list of chemicals to avoid.  Here is a snipet;

If Your Sunscreen Contains Any of These Chemicals That I Consider Dangerous and Potentially Life Threatening, Do Yourself a BIG Favor…

Harmful Chemicals in a Sunscreen
Toss your sunscreen in the trash if it contains any of these chemicals I consider potentially harmful.

Dump it now.

Yes, that’s right. Toss your sunscreen in the trash if it contains any of these questionable chemicals:

  • Para amino benzoic acid…
  • Octyl salicyclate…
  • Avobenzone…
  • Oxybenzone…
  • Cinoxate…
  • Padimate O…
  • Dioxybenzone…
  • Phenylbenzimidazole…
  • Homosalate…
  • Sulisobenzone…
  • Menthyl anthranilate…
  • Trolamine salicyclate…
  • Octocrylene…

And, oh yes, let me not forget…

Potentially harmful chemicals such as dioxybenzone and oxybenzone (two chemicals I just mentioned) are some of the most powerful free radical generators known to man!

So if your sunscreen contains dioxybenzone, oxybenzone, or any of the other chemicals I just revealed, I highly recommend you switch to a formula that is safe and healthy for your skin.


I plan to visit a local pharmacy and see if they carry anything that is “safe” for your skin. I bet not, but am always hopeful.

I would recommend following Dr Mercola if you agree with his basic principles;

I get regular email updates and always learn something new.  I’m a firm believer in always adding to my toolbox of knowledge.
