Most sunscreen is very toxic to you and your children. This is one of those summer essentials that we don’t think is optional and we don’t think we have an alternative. Most offensive of all, when it comes to using sunscreen on our children, we often assume that if it’s made for children, it must be safe. “They” wouldn’t let our children be harmed, right? Wrong.
The Environmental Working Group is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that is dedicated to protecting human health and the environment. They do the exhaustive research that we don’t have time to do, they tell us what toxins are in our products and they rate those products and companies so we can make easy decisions about what to buy for our families.
These 8 facts about sunscreen will get the ball rolling. Read here.

Many of us spend years of our lives living with an all-or-nothing mentality, especially when it comes to taking care of our health and overall wellbeing. We’re either perfectly following all our health and wellness routines and feeling on top of the world or we’re not supporting our health and wellness at all, leaving ourselves feeling guilty, ashamed, and unfulfilled. Life isn’t black and white, so trying to live on an all-or-nothing roller coaster isn’t sustainable. The ReNu Challenge is a monthly reminder from Jillian, NuSpecies Executive Vice President, that everyday is a new opportunity to pursue and cultivate health, good character, and positive relationships. Nothing has a permanent state; life requires us to constantly renew, regenerate, and evolve. This challenge helps you to embrace that. Although we’re all at different places in our journey, each month the challenge is to keep moving forward.
