It has little to do with the effects of Sunscreen protection products on the human organism.
But toxicologists are also increasingly warning of the consequences of UV filters for humans.
Ingredients such as Ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate (EHMC) and octocrylene are critically discussed in science.
Under certain circumstances, they should trigger allergies or have a hormonal effect, especially in children.
According to “today’s scientific knowledge,” the products are “safe”, and the protection of the skin against UV radiation “very important.”
The benefits of Sunscreen are “much greater than the theoretical risk.”
The problem is that modern sun blockers think that people are completely protected. “A misconception,” says Bertram.
For him, the Sunscreen only comes in third place when it comes to protecting against damage.
The protections against Sunburn are:
The best sun protection is still the shade. Especially in the midday hours, it is advisable to go to a shady spot. The radiation is then the most intense.
You can also protect yourself from UV radiation with appropriate clothing. T-shirts that cover the shoulder or hats with wide brims are particularly suitable.
UV radiation damages the skin as well as the eyes. Important when choosing sunglasses: the CE mark and the remark “100% UV”.
Sunscreen is especially recommended by the Swiss Cancer League as a supplement to staying in the shade and wearing clothes.
If used correctly, the risk of developing skin cancer can be reduced. Still, sunscreens with a high sun protection factor are not a free pass for an unlimited stay in the sun.
