To live vigorously and luxuriantly, to flourish
Researchers at the Environmental Working Group, a Washington-based, nonprofit, released their annual report claiming nearly half of the 500 most popular sunscreen products may actually increase the speed at which malignant cells develop and spread skin cancer.
Non Toxic Sunscreen: (SPF 6-8)
2 tablespoon Virgin Coconut Oil
1 tablespoon Shea Butter
1 tablespoon Avocado Oil
1/2 teaspoon Sesame Oil
1/2 teaspoon Aloe Vera Gel
Keep in mind that this recipe will not allow you to stay in the sun for hours without burning, even if you have darker skin. If you have pale skin and are prone to burning in very short periods, this recipe will only modestly protect you when UV rays are at their highest strength. Intermittent periods spent in the shade are highly recommended to balance the UV dose you receive.
For those that tan well, this lotion will give you an excellent color and glow if used daily while spending a minimum of 30 minutes in the sun. Although it’s not waterproof, it is water resistant if applied thoroughly and spread evenly. In direct sunlight, you must reapply a thin layer of the lotion every half hour for optimal results.
WE BLOCK OUR ABILITY TO UTILIZE VITAMIN D
Vitamin D deficiency has been strongly linked to a variety of cancers, including the most dangerous types of breast and colon cancer. We do know that sunscreen inhibits Vitamin D production, especially when used regularly. So we avoid the sun, which helps our bodies naturally produce Vitamin D, and put chemical laden lotions on in hopes of reducing one type of cancer (skin) that is not commonly fatal. In the process, we make ourselves vitamin D deficient and increase our chance of a host of other cancers, including some of the most fatal cancers. Sun generated Vitamin D is shown to help prevent up to 78% of all cancers. Read More
