Experts Warn About Dangers Of Using DIY Sunscreen

There are many types of sunscreen in the market and there is even ครีมกันแดดผิวแพ้ง่าย which is why experts were alarmed after the latest Consumer Reports was revealed. According to the report, there are an increasing number of consumers that are using homemade sunscreen as skin protection from the scorching heat of the sun.

The main reason for this is that they believe that these products are not only healthier but also cheaper if they make their own. While it may be true for some homemade products, doctors said that it is not exactly true when it comes to sunscreen.

Consumers tend to shy away from sunscreen products that are available in the market because they are not sure of the chemicals that are contained in the formula thus they develop their homemade sunscreen by utilizing natural ingredients. However, dermatologists commented that this is not recommended and can be a bad idea to begin with.

By looking at the stores available online that sell DIY sunscreen, their number is increasing every day. This increase was significantly higher after reports of a new study revealing the chemicals of some sunscreen are not just absorbed by the skin but also travels through the blood stream. This new study contradicts the earlier findings which states that only a very minimal amount is getting into the skin.

Consumer Reports clarified that the FDA has ordered further research on the chemicals that are used as active ingredients on some sunscreen products but the agency did not release a warning that consumers should stop using these products. Despite this, consumers’ fears got ahead of them and they tried making their own.

Dermatologists are worried because those who are formulating at home are working using their sink or their bathtub which is not advisable because they do not follow the standard in making these products and they are not even sure that the ingredients are effective in protecting skin from the sun.

A dermatologist said that ครีมกันแดดผิวแพ้ง่าย should be used by kids and adults with sensitive skin while those who are not should use products with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide.
