Harmful Ingredients in Store Bought Sunscreen

Oxybenzone (a synthetic estrogen), the most common active ingredient in sunscreen has been shown to cause allergic reactions and interrupt hormone activity.

Another dangerous chemical found in sunscreen is Octyl methoxycinnamate (OMC). It has been shown to cause hormone disruption, immune dysfunction, and allergic reactions.
