Is Your Sunscreen killing You?

No More Toxic Sun Screen!
I have been studying the hazardous effects from toxic ingredients in many very well known sunscreens! 
Studies have found that the incidence of skin cancers has increased even as sunscreens have become popular, especially in fair skinned people.
The Chemical Sunscreen Health Disaster. (informative link including clinical studies and references)
EWG's List of Worst Sunscreens! (this is a database for any ingredient you wish to research).
Sunscreen Chemicals Generate Free Radicals
Most sunscreens contain ethylhexyl salicylate, homosalate, avobenzone, octyl methoxycinnamate, and Oxybenzone-Benzophenone, a powerful free radical generator that is activated by ultraviolet light! Free radicals damage the DNA of cells which produce skin aging and the development of cancer.
Chemical Sunscreens Increase Risk of Cancer/ Estrogenic
An observation between 1981-1992 estimated a 17% increase in breast cancer as a result of the influential use of sunscreens over the past decade. Using chemical sunscreens may increase your chances of developing endometriosis, breast cancer, and uterine cancer A clinical study showed the effect of sunscreen s on UV radiation-induced enhancement of melanoma growth in mice.(Journal of National Cancer Institute, Vol.86, No.10.

In its recently released 2011 Sunscreen Report, the Environmental Working Group states that it is unfortunate that consumers must …."pick your sunscreen: nanomaterials or potential hormone disruptors.”   

Well, there is no need to make this choice with Ava’s new sunscreen – we have NEITHER! 
 NO hormone disruptors, NO nanomaterials and NO harmful chemicals. (“The major choice in the U.S. is between “chemical” sunscreens, which have inferior stability and may disrupt the body’s hormone systems, and “mineral” sunscreens (zinc and titanium), which often contain micronized- or nano-scale particles of those minerals.”) 
We have determined that mineral sunscreens (zinc) have the best safety profile of today’s choices. They offer UVA protection, which is sorely lacking in most of today’s sunscreen products.” – EWG, Sunscreen Report, May 2011  
"The American Academy of Dermatology recommends a broad-spectrum (protects against UVA and UVB rays) water resistant sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, for year round use." Ava’s 30+ SPF fits this perfectly!
Dr. Patrick Sullivan, Double Board certified, nationally recognized Plastic Surgeon writes -   "What a stellar accomplishment. Congratulations Ava!  This is a very significant contribution. Everyone can benefit from a sunblock like this: It is safe and protects against both UVA and UVB harmful rays.  We will be making this available in our plastic surgery office and giving it the 'High Recommendation' for our patients.  Thank you for listening and responding to our need for a non toxic sunscreen.  I know you have been working hard on this one for sometime"

Dangers Of Sodium Laurel Sulfate and Dioxane

Dangers of Sodium Laurel Sulfate and Dioxane 1,4

“David Steinman, explained in his book, Safe Trip to Eden,… this process– called ethoxylation — creates 1,4 dioxane, a known animal and probable human carcinogen according to the EPA…
“David Steinman, explained in his book, Safe Trip to Eden, that companies replaced the harsh cleanser, sodium lauryl sufate with the much gentler sodium laureth sulfate. Laurel is converted to laureth by adding the petrochemical ethylene oxide. But this process– called ethoxylation — creates the petroleum-derived contaminant 1,4 dioxane, a known animal and probable human carcinogen according to the EPA.
In 2002 David started buying personal care products that contain ethoxylated ingredients and sending them to a lab to test for 1,4 dioxane. The lab found the cancer-causing chemical in 18 of two dozen products tested, including 15 popular brand baby shampoos and bath products. The contaminant was not listed on any of the labels.
The manufacturers claim the levels are too low to cause harm. However, low levels of exposure can add up. The same infant exposed to 1,4-dioxane from a baby shampoo could also be exposed to the carcinogen from the bubble bath and the body wash in a single bath — as well as from food, water and other household products in the same day. “It’s these multiple exposure to carcinogens that are cause for concern, especially for developing children,” said Janet Nudelman from the Breast Cancer Fund. We have to ask, is it necessary for baby shampoos to contain cancer-causing chemicals at all? The answer is no.”

Alicia Silverstone will tell you – it’s amazing!

“… just because we’re choosing products that are healthy for our bodies and the planet doesn't mean we can’t – or shouldn’t – look fabulous doing it!  A lot of people ask me about makeup and skincare. I totally get why: It can be tough to find products that are safe and natural yet still every bit as amazing (or even more amazing) than your tried-and true, conventional brands. Ava Anderson Non-Toxic skincare products are one of those amazing finds: They get Kind Life superhero status!
Ava founded her company when she was only 14 – I just love that!  Ava is a huge inspiration to those of us who try every day to keep toxins out of our lives. I've tried all of her non-toxic products, and the one I love most is the Eye Makeup Remover. I remember being on a movie shoot where I had to wear a ton of makeup every day – something I never do unless it's a special occasion. Every night when I got home I used Ava Anderson's eye makeup remover pads and they took all that gunk right off – so they immediately became my new favorite. They smell great, they feel good, they work really well...and of course, they're non-toxic.  I commend Ava for all of her hard work and for having the gumption to do something so creative and amazing.”
