After spending a lovely day outside yesterday.  I noticed Andrew had a bit of a sunburn on his neck.  We all know that sunscreen causes cancer way more than it prevents it.  So I did some research on my fave website naturalnews.  The Health Ranger suggests using Badger sunscreen so I found a place to buy it at  And found they sell some other natural sunscreens too!
I also researched  for some recipes to make your own:

Partial List of Harmful Chemicals to avoid when purchasing a sunscreen from naturalnews:

* Oxybenzone and Dixoybenzone
* PABA (Para Amino Benzoic Acid) and PABA esters - p-aminobenzoic acid, glyceryl PABA, 4-aminobenzoic acidpadimate-O, or octyl dimethyl PABA
* Parabens
* Cinnamates - octyl methoxycinnamate and cinoxate
* Digalloyl trioleate
* Menthyl anthranilate
* Salicylates - homomenthyl salicylate, octyl salicylate, and triethanolamine salicylate, ethylhexyl salicylate
* Avobenzone
