Sunshine is an essential part of our lives. It nurtures the growth of the plant kingdom at the bottom of our food chains, it warms us and our environment and it provides vitamin D, which is essential to our health and growth. But what we have all seen, and has become more prevalent in our awareness over the last few decades, is that too much of a good thing can be potentially harmful. Unhealthy sun exposure (too much, too intense, too long) can contribute to skin damage (wrinkles, sun spots) and of course skin cancer. So it goes without saying that sunscreen and sun protection products are a good idea – but how do you know that what you are putting on your skin is safe and healthy for you at the same time?
