  2. Isn’t it crazy we try so hard to protect ourselves from one thing, but we could be causing harm in the meantime?! Not only are those ingredients bad for us, but they’re bad for the environment and ocean, too. I’m forever on the hunt for “reef-safe” sunscreen. It’s so good to become familiar with these ingredients.

    1. Thanks Raina! Do you have a favorite natural sunscreen you use?

  4. Great info here! Thank you. I have a couple of fairskinned kids as well as a husband who turns into Larry the Lobster at the flick of a sunscreen bottle cap. I cringe at the thought of all the sunscreen they’ve already absorbed. (Yikes!)
    Any suggestions for DIY sunscreen recipes?

    1. You know, I haven’t done my own sunscreen yet. I am planning on looking into it soon. I have a friend that uses a lot of essential oils and I’m pretty sure they are a key ingredient in DIY sunscreen. I’ll let you know if I find something!

      1. I’ve seen some too. It seems like every friend I have either sells R+F or essential oils. I better get looking. Sunscreen season, I mean summer, is right around the corner!

  5. Wow! I never thought about what ingredients are in the sunscreen. This is some great information to keep in mind next time my kids and I go to the beach.
