Reasons Why You Need to Switch to Mineral Sunscreens

Updated: Jul 11




Introducing AlumierMD broad-spectrum sunscreens.


- Powerful protection against UVA and UVB rays

- Contains physical filter zinc oxide and titanium dioxide

- Free from chemical filters

- Free from parabens


Mineral Sunscreens are getting attention from health concerned people and the reason is there are no chemicals in them that can enter our bloodstream.


The Journal of the American Medical Association published a study by the FDA that reports if a sunscreen chemical exceeds a blood concentration of 0.5ng/mL, there are potential concerns.


Why is this important?


Having a healthy body means reducing or eliminating toxins and if a sunscreen that we use on ourselves and our children could have negative results on our wellbeing, it should be avoided. We want to be confident that the product we use to protect our skin from the UVA rays is not doing more damage internally.


There is a safer alternative!


The Canadian Dermatology Association has a Q & A that answers many questions you may have on sunscreens.
