There are some concerns about thse chemicals safetey.

** Oxybenzone -- for instance, has been shown to decrease sperm count and lenghten the estrous cycle in mice.

** Octyl Methoxycinnamate -- may damage skin cells.

** Benzophenone - 3(Bp-3) Homosalate (HMS) 4 - methyl benzylidene camphor (4-MBC) octyl methoxycinnamate (OMC) and octyl dimethylPABA (OD PABA) were found to have estrogenic effects in teh body, which can lead to certain cancers, including breast cancer.

Some common natural ingredients often incorporated into sunscreens include:

** Grape seed extract, vitamin E and green tea - all antioxidants tha may help neutralize free radical damage from both the sun and suncsreen itslef.

** Wite birch extract - possesses antiviral qualities (the latest theory is that cancer, including skinc ancer, may have viral component).

** Aloe -- brings a moisturizing soothing component to themix.

** Herbs and botanicals that offer antibactirial/antiviral support like Chamomile (which reduces inflammation and heals bruns). yarrow (which heals wounds) and echinacea ( an antiviral immune suporter) are common in sunscreens.

sometimes a proeuct will also include an aromatic herb such as lavender as a frangrance and insect reppellent.
