Did you know that Europe bans over 1,300 chemicals from their personal care products while the US bans only 10?  Did you know that the FDA does not regulate the personal products industry and assumes that cosmetic companies will do their due diligence and issue safe products?  Did you know that ‘safe’, ‘organic’ and ‘natural’ does not mean that those products do not contain any toxic chemicals as well?

Why Ava Anderson?

Stephanie Henzi, local mom and independent consultant shares: “Overall wellness has always been a passion of mine.  The more I learn about ways to keep me and my family safe, the more I want to share the messages I find. Ava Anderson is a perfect way to share the messages and resources about harmful chemicals in personal care and cleaning products. Each little change we can make will make a big change in the lives of our families and friends. The products from Ava Anderson Non-Toxic is one of those small changes everyone can make!”

Product Highlight: What’s in Your Sunscreen?

Ava Anderson Nontoxic‘s sunscreen is one of the very safest on the market and is recommended by the Environmental Working Group!

It is made with non-nanoparticle zinc oxide and certified organic botanical ingredients, and is perfect for babies to grownups.  Did you know the ingredient, Retinyl Palmitate, found in common susncreens enhance skin cancer lesions by 21%?  A majority of the sunscreens contain the following toxic ingredients, especially children/baby sunscreens.

  • Oxybenzone – this is a hormone disrupting chemical which penetrates the skin and enters the bloodstream. It is the most popular ingredient in chemical based sunscreens and only blocks UVB ray (sun’s good rays that provide vitamin D production), not UVA which are the most free radical damaging rays.  Avoid any sunscreen that has this chemical at all costs, especially for children.
  • Vitamin A (Retinyl Palmitate) – A 2009 study by U.S. government scientists released by the National Toxicology Program found when this is applied to the skin in the presence of sunlight, it may speed the development of skin tumors and lesions.
  • Fragrance – Sure it may make the product smell nice, but this is a petroleum based product that is linked to organ toxicity and allergies.
  • Sprays or Powders – Generally speaking, sprays and powders have additional chemicals added to them for performance purposes. These additional chemicals are usually not something you want to be spraying on your body and can be toxic to the lungs. Remember, sunscreen is formulated for your skin, not your lungs. Many of the side effects of sprays and powders on the lungs are not tested before being approved.
