What are the bad chemicals to watch out for in sunscreen?
First of all, oxybenzone. This is widely used in sunscreen, is an irritant and allergen, and also damages coral reefs. A few others include synthetic fragrances (manufacturers are not required to disclose what’s in their particular fragrance blend, so that could trigger a lot of allergic reactions), retinyl palmitate and parabens. We do not use any of these in our Supergoop! formulas.
