Amazing Natural Non Toxic Sunscreen Recipe from Do It Gorgeously Green

Do it Gorgeously Green has an amazing recipe for Non Toxic Sunscreen. Many people don't think much about the products they use on their skin and are more concerned about foods they eat. But products used on the skin go directly into the bloodstream. There is no liver to filter out toxins so any chemicals used on the skin we end up absorbing. According to the Environmental Working Group's 2011 Sunscreen Report:

"Since scientist do not have definitive answers about sunscreen and skin cancer, it is no wonder that many experts recommend that people rely on clothing and shade, rather than sunscreen, to protect themselves from sun exposure."
