This is just 1 of the findings of the Environmental Working Group's analysis of the ingredients of 1,592 name-brand sunscreens.
Dr Edward Gorham M.P.H., Ph.D of the University of California, San Diego reveals several facts about sunscreens that are directly opposite to what we have all been led to believe!

For the past decade we - being a team of collaborative, independent laboratories, biochemists, photo biologists, and several technical and field researchers - have developed a range of sunscreens that provide:
The second bullet above is a favorite of mine because.....
The cutaneous antioxidant system is complex, interlinked and operates as a network. Because of this, an enhanced photo protective effect can be obtained by applying appropriate combinations of antioxidants.
As these combinations act synergistically, it has provided us with a prime focus in our research and to continually focus on finding natural ingredients that are also effective.
We believe the paragraph above describes what makes our sunscreen formulas truly unique.
is another way of saying 'sun shade'
One of the really magic elements within our formulas has been the use of the 'golden mean' and 'divine proportion' or more succinctly 'phi' after the architect Phidias who designed the Parthenon.
