In this season the one cream that should be the part of our daily routine is sunscreen. Sun is a source of energy on this planet, however, long exposure to the ultraviolet rays can damage or burn our skin. It can also lead to tanning, sunburn, premature ageing and in some cases skin cancer. So, we should make sure that we apply sunscreen on daily basis to protect our skin. It is shocking that most of the available cosmetics sunscreen creams are full of toxic chemicals which causes harm instead of doing good for our skin. These chemicals can be listed as Paraben, Oxybenzone, Mineral Oils, BHT and which not only damage the skin but also block the absorbsion of Vitamin D in the body for which sun is the major source. We want to protect our skin from harmful radiation but at the same time we do not want toxic chemicals to go in our body. Here we are to give you the solution which sunscreen you should use to protect your screen this summer. I have researched all the sunscreens and it is shocking to know that most of the popular sunscreen are full of chemicals. We will now categorize all the sunscreens available in Indian Market from worst to best. I have classified 3 categories on basis of number of chemicals in it.
Category Number 1 (Worst)
VLCC, Lakme, Lotus, Garnier, Joy, Nivea, Vaseline
These above brands sunscreens have 8-10 toxic chemicals which can damage our skins with long term use. Many of these chemicals have been known to interfere with Thyroid glands. Some of these chemicals have the capacity to cross the skin and go to other tissues in the body. Basically, these sunscreens are the worst in the market. Amway Attitude is the worst sunscreen is Indian Market with full of chemicals. It has more than 12 worst chemical in it. If you are using any of the above sunscreens, please consider changing it. These do not deserve your hard earned money as these have toxic chemicals, strong fragrances, cosmetic colors and harmful preservatives.
Category Number 2 (Intermediate)
These sunscreens are non cosmetic and ayurvedic but does not mention complete list of ingredients. Biotique has mentioned only 30% of its chemicals, however 70% of the botanical ingredients are missing from its list. Patanjali is even worst as list of ayurvedic chemicals is less than 5%. These sunscreens does not indicate clearly what these are made of and does not quality for the ayurvedic proprietary medicines. Their customer service is also not responsive. SPF is the measurement that how well the sunscreen will protect you from high range of UVA/UVB rays. These creams do not justify their SPF as well.
Category Number 3 (Good)
Aroma Magic, Lass Naturals, Green Berry Organics
Above brands sunscreens are safe to use as these are free from toxic chemicals and mentioned full list of ingredients. These are certified to be organic and will not damage our skin. These also does not contain strong fragrances, cosmetic colors and harmful preservatives.
