For those of you who aren't familiar, this brand, that touts itself as "all natural, safe, water resistant and non-toxic," has been on the receiving end of some very bad publicity from their customers. Parents have been posting pictures on social media of themselves and their children with horrible sunburns after wearing this brand of sunscreen.

    What we eat effects our health. But many of us are not aware that what we put onto our skin also affects our long term well-being. Studies have should than our skin absorbs up to 60% of what is applied to its surface. Highly sensitive mucous membranes absorb eye makeup. While there is some controversy over the number of pounds of lipstick the average woman consumers in her lifetime, the fact is that lipstick, lip gloss and lip balms are consumed.

    According to the Environmental Working Group, most of the over ten thousand ingredients used in personal care products on the market today have not been evaluated for safety. Even more disturbing, U.S. researchers have found that one in eight ingredients used in personal care products are industrial chemicals (including carcinogens, pesticides and reproductive pollutants).
