While protecting your skin is now and has always been an important part of a proper skincare regime, there have been questions raised as to whether sunscreen ingredients are causing adverse effects on our bodies. For those wanting to protect their skin and that of their clients, friends and loved ones, it is important to research safe sunscreen ingredients.
Though there is some debate among medical professionals on the best sunscreen ingredients for safety and effectiveness, recent research can determine which are the best natural sunscreen ingredients and which chemicals you should be avoiding in the sunscreen you choose.
