Protecting the Body in the Sunshine!

Summer time is beach time, or at least poolside time. But if you want some protection from the sunís UV rays, donít always reach for toxic sunscreens. Instead, pack some extra virgin coconut oil along with your beach towel and umbrella.

Thatís right, the same extra virgin coconut oil found in your kitchen pantry will do the trick to protect your skin Ė minus the toxicity from health-compromising ingredients. Coconut oil has been used as an effective sunscreen for thousands of years by indigenous, pacific islanders. Why slather toxic chemicals on your body when you can use non-toxic coconut oil instead?

There are two types of UV (ultraviolet) rays from the sun: UVA and UVB. UVA rays are primarily responsible for skin damage from excessive sun exposure that can lead to cancer and skin aging. However, although UVB rays can also cause damage and sunburn, they are necessary for your body to produce its own cancer protective vitamin D via the skin.

Sunlight is by far the optimal way to produce your vitamin D. Blocking UVB rays may inadvertently be increasing your cancer risk by blocking vitamin D absorption. Plus, sunscreen causes cancer through carcinogenic ingredients.

Avoid Toxic Sunscreens

According to the Environmental Working Group (EWG) approximately 75% of commercial sunscreens contain toxic chemicals that are linked to cancer and disrupt hormones. Store bought sunscreens typically contain:

Retinyl palmitate, a known skin cancer hazard.
Oxybenzone, which disrupts hormones leading to cell damage and cancer.
Zinc and titanium nanoparticles, which are in colorless sun screen lotions.

Those and other chemicals rubbed on your skin are readily absorbed into your bloodstream and can be just as unhealthy and toxic as an oral dose.

An excerpt from a 2012 CNN article about sunscreens:

ďThe EWG said consumers should not purchase sunscreens with SPF greater than 50. SPF (sun protection factor) works by absorbing, reflecting or scattering the sunís rays on the skin. It is very misleading to put high SPF numbers on labels because it gives consumers a false sense of security and doesnít offer a lot more protection.Ē

While SPF 85 may sound like a lot more protection than SPF 30, the higher the number doesnít always offer a higher return. Studies show that sunscreen with SPF 15 can block about 93% of all incoming UVB rays. SPF 30 blocks 97%. SPF 50 blocks 98%. The protective factors plateau from there.

ďA product with SPF 100+ blocks about 99.1 percent of the UVB rays. You donít really need a high number. They end up being expensive and donít offer more protection than SPF 50. Keep in mind, SPF protects only against UVB rays.Ē

Coconut oil has an SPF of 10 which means 90% of beneficial vitamin D creating UBV rays are blocked. How many people know that SPF ratings do not indicate any protection from the highly damaging UVA rays?

Yet, the American Cancer Society advises to apply a generous amount of of toxic commercial sunscreen 30 minutes before sun exposure and minimally every two hours thereafter, reapplying after being in the water, sweating, and towel drying.

Choose Coconut Oil for Sunscreen Instead

Daily exposure to the sun is essential to your overall health; itís the overexposure that could cause some issues. Sunshine exposure is the best way for your body to create health protecting vitamin D. To protect against sunburn, use a non-toxic sunscreen like coconut oil or opt for a low-risk, safe sunscreen that doesnít contain health compromising ingredients.

Bruce Fife, ND, author of Coconut Cures: Preventing and Treating Common Health Problems with Coconut Oil, explains that coconut oil applied on the skin protects against sunburn and cancer. Unlike sunscreen, unprocessed coconut oil doesnít completely block the UVB rays that are necessary for vitamin D synthesis. It protects the skin and underlying tissues from damage excessive exposure can cause. Instead of burning or turning red, it produces a light tan, depending on the length of time you spend in the sun.

Fife asserts that ďConsuming coconut oil also strengthens the skin and makes it more resilient and less prone to sunburn.Ē He warns against using hydrolyzed or processed oil. Just make sure the coconut oil is pure and not processed.
