Go Green’s Safe Sunscreen Swap!

June 8, 2018 | Blog

School is out! In honor of summer break, trips to Barton Springs, and BBQs, we present you with our Safe Sunscreen Swap! While sunscreen is a necessity in our neck of the woods, make sure you are choosing the safest options for you and your family. According to the Environmental Working Group, over 67% of sunscreens on the market do not provide adequate protection from harmful UV rays and/or contain dangerous ingredients.

A few general guidelines to keep in mind when shopping for sunscreen:

  • Avoid any product that contains OXYBENZONE – Oxybenzone acts as an estrogen and is linked to significant hormone disruption in men.
  • Avoid any product that contains VITAMIN A – Vitamin A can react with UV rays and increases the risk of skin tumors. Sport sunscreens are notorious for containing Vitamin A.
  • Avoid SPRAY SUNSCREENS – The FDA has raised concerns about inhalation risks, and the spray makes it difficult to apply evenly and accurately.

Betsy W.

Professional and Honest

After receiving a ridiculously high quote from the HVAC company sent out by our home warranty, my husband wanted a second opinion. Our technician Mike was thorough and honest about what needed repair. Not only was the diagnosis much simpler, so was the price. Mike got the repair done quickly and was very professional. We’ll definitely be calling Go Green again.
