It is hard to find a non-toxic sunscreen because most of the commercialized versions are loaded with toxic additives and preservatives. They actually cause cancer instead of preventing it. Those chemicals are absorbed by the skin, and end up harming the liver, the organ responsible for neutralizing chemicals in the body. For this reason, it is necessary to choose a sunscreen that is as pure and natural as possible. If you are looking for an alternative to commercial sunscreens this is a great way to go.
How to Make the Best Nontoxic Sunscreeen Ever
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon beeswax (here)
- 1 tablespoon avocado oil
- 5 drops of essential oils of your choice (optional)
Put all the ingredients in a glass bowl set on top of a pan of boiling water and melt all the ingredients together. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature and then add your favorite essential oil (optional). Pour into a wide-mouthed container with a lid. The sunscreen will thicken some as it cools. Store in a cool, dry place or in the fridge.
