There are two different kinds of sunscreens on the market. As we are in the peak of Summer, we feel it is important to provide information about your numerous choices, as a consumer. Before you slather up, and sit in the sun, be sure you aren’t actually doing more harm than good.
Activated charcoal is a must-have in any medicine cabinet because of its adsorption abilities, limited side effects, and short list of people who should not use it due to existing conditions. Activated charcoal is very porous allowing toxins and other chemicals to bind to it.
