The Best Sunscreen to use During Pregnancy
Sunscreen-The list of ingredients to avoid in sunscreen is way too long to go into here. Dr. Green lists several “estrogenic” chemicals to avoid. On the rare occasion that we use sunscreen (even here in Miami), we use the one formulated by Dr. Mercola (Mercola.com). It is free of chemical fragrances, parabens, and nanoparticles. The active ingredients are titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, along with sunflower oil, lecithin, coconut oil, glycerine, jojoba oil, tocopheryl acetate (Vitamin E), shea butter, and eucalyptus oil. Compare that to the small book of chemical ingredients found on your average sunscreen right before you place that chemical sunscreen into the garbage.
