Sunscreen Exposed: The Chemicals Putting Your Health at Risk

Sunscreen Exposed: The Chemicals Putting Your Health at Risk

Are You Putting Toxic Chemicals on Your Skin?

You lather it on before heading outside to “protect” yourself from the sun’s rays. But what if that sunscreen you’re using is actually doing more harm than good?

In my solo episode of The Darin Olien Show, I dive deep into the dangers of common sunscreen ingredients like avobenzone, oxybenzone, octocrylene, and e-camsule. Shocking research shows that these chemicals get absorbed into the bloodstream at levels far exceeding safety limits – even from a single application!

The main point? These hormone-disrupting, potentially cancer-causing chemicals have no place in sunscreens or on our skin. Sensible sun exposure without sunscreen is not only safe, but crucial for vitamin D production, nitric oxide increase, and overall mortality reduction.

This is an eye-opening listen that will make you seriously rethink slathering on those toxic sunscreen products.
