Be aware! this contains nanoparticles
on 19 August 2015
Prospective buyers should be aware that this product contains nano-particles. Whilst the company replied to my letter expressing concerns about this, claiming that they are of a type that has a special kind of chemical 'covering' so that they are not absorbed, I feel that in the body, a child's body, say, these particles could hang around for years and years and eventually whatever type of protective 'cover' they have could well wear off.. It isn't known yet exactly what effect nanoparticles can have on the body, as, being so tiny, they are likely to migrate to different organs. And even if they are not absorbed into the body.. wouldn't the nano particles end up, once excreted, in watercourses and the sea? There is already evidence that some 'nano' products are causing harm to marine life. Surely, when there are many other good sunscreens on the market, it is better to choose something else.
