I can hear you saying, “If I’m going to go outside, I should probably be wearing my sunscreen!”
Well, the truth is, you’re not going to have much luck finding good outdoor sunscreen in most places.
If you do, it’s only in your house.
And that’s because of what we call “natural sunscreen.”
Natural sunscreen is a term coined by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIH) in 1997.
In that report, the NIH explained, “Natural sunscreen is sunscreen that is not derived from petroleum-derived or other fossil fuels.”
And that means sunscreen is not petroleum-based, petroleum-free, or derived from renewable resources like wind and solar power.
Natural sunscreen, by contrast, includes chemicals that are natural to plants and animals and that have been around for billions of years.
They’re made of plant and animal skin oils, plant proteins, and plant proteins derived from water.
They are also found in plants and trees, including coffee, walnuts, avocado, tomatoes, and many other fruits and vegetables.
So when you talk about natural sunscreen, you really mean it in the sense of not derived primarily from petroleum.
If natural sunscreen contains a combination of petroleum-containing ingredients, like benzene, the compound is called benzophenone-4 (BPA), and it can have harmful side effects.
If sunscreen is made of plants and animal skins, like coconuts and almonds, it may be made of natural substances like polyurethane, which is used to make rubber cement and is derived from plant oil.
But if natural sunscreen is derived primarily or entirely from plants and other animals and has been around thousands of years, like plants and insects, then it is called a biocide.
A biocide is a chemical that is an herbicide, insecticide, fungicide, or insect repellent, or one that kills an organism but does not kill its living relatives.
Natural sunscreens are not biocide agents.
And natural sunscreen isn’t the only sunscreen that isn’t made of petroleum.
Other sunscents that don’t contain petroleum-bearing ingredients include mineral oils, organic natural products, plant oils, and vegetable oils.
