Dr. Terry Zickerman, Founder of Love Sun Body
Dr. Terry Zickerman and his family were visiting Point Pleasant Beach. They were looking for a sunscreen that would be truly safe & effective. While searching sunscreens, Dr. Zickerman found that most sunscreens had hazardous chemical filters with insufficient safety data and petroleum-based ingredients. So when he couldn’t find what he was looking for – he decided to build his own. And, that’s how Love Sun Body was born!
Dr. Zickerman and his team started researching sunscreens. They found chemicals in sunscreen don't just sit on top of the skin, they absorb in the bloodstream. Many of these sunscreens are ineffective and studies have shown in addition to hormone disruption, skin penetration, skin allergies, cell damage and other concerns.
They also found that too many mineral sunscreens used to little zinc oxide and titanium dioxide and they do not provide enough UVA + UVB protection for SPF 30 and SPF 50 sunscreens. SFF 30 which is the minimal SPF dermatologists recommend, which filters 97% of UV radiation and SPF rating of up to 50+, which filters 98% of UV radiation.
In their research, they also found many mineral sunscreens were formulated with micronized (nano) zinc oxide, which is not as effective as the non-nano zinc oxide because many of the UV rays pass through the smaller nano sized particles. There are studies showing that very small nanoparticles (smaller than 35nm) of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide can be harmful to the environment by being toxic to marine life.
