The Environmental Working Group (EWG) and it’s site on skincare products.
I have a great deal of respect for the EWG and what they are trying to accomplish. I do think you need to assess their information with a critical eye though.
On this issue: Are your cancer risks higher if you don’t use a high quality sunscreen or from the small amount of octinoxate in the product, especially if you consider that “6” rating is from data that has nothing to do with sunscreen.
Are you eating the octinoxate and are you the size of a rat? I’m guessing not! (Hopefully :)) If you feed all sorts of things to rats in high enough quantities, they will cause cancer and birth defects.
I think you all see what I’m trying to say. We just need to take the EWG information and put it in a context and decide what we think is sensible.
