Description: Despite increased education on becoming sun smart, the incidence of skin cancer appears to be rising.
According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, more than 600,000 new cases of skin cancer are diagnosed each year, and the figure is rising. Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States and is responsible for 8,500 deaths annually.
A hypothesis for this phenomenon are two-fold:
1) Most people have acidic skin with a pH of below 5. The radiation from the sun reacts with the acids on the skin causing acid crystals and damage to the skin cells leading to cancer, and,
2) Harmful acidic chemicals lurking in cosmetics and sunscreens are reacting with the radiation of the sun damaging the cells of the skin leading to skin cancer.
International studies found the greatest rise in melanoma occurred in countries where chemical sunscreens are heavily promoted.
Robert O. Young, Ph.D., states that, "commercially available cosmetics, lotions and sunscreens might damage people's skin when it reacts with radiation from the sun."
The Environmental Working Group's (EWG) in the June 2007 study where 785 sunscreens were analyzed showed that 84 percent provided inadequate protection from the sun's radiation or contained ingredients with safety concerns.
That is not the case with the all natural Young pHorever Sun Screen with pure essential oil of Citronella which contains no harmful ingredients.
Some experts suggest that many sunscreen formulas may be cancer causing. The harmful chemicals identified include allergy-creating PABA, benzophenone-3, homosalate, octyl-methoxycinnamate (OMC) and 4-methyl-benzylidene camphor (4-MBC). While these chemicals protect skin from sun damage, experts have indicated the chemical octyl methoxycinnamate, which is present in 90 percent of sunscreen brands, was found to kill mouse cells even at low doses.
Recent studies on childhood illnesses linked these findings to a possible cause of ADHD, asthma and allergies.
Some sunscreen ingredients also change estrogen levels in the body affecting DNA and causing cell damage by creating an abundance of hydrogen ions or acids.
As a result of these astonishing findings and increased consumer demand, Dr. Young has created a naturally derived sunscreen range which has no harmful ingredients for longevity, fragrance or moisturising purposes. Young pHorever Sun Screen products consist of powerful antioxidants such as Tea Tree Oil and Grapefruit Seed extract; Apricot Oil, Avocado Oil, Almond Oil and colloidal Titanium and Zinc to fight environmental stressors; moisturizing and skin-conditioning oils; and vitamin E to assist with skin reconstruction at a cellular level.
This combination of ingredients is suitable for all skin types and will help combat the signs of photo-aging.
The Young pHorever Sun pHilter range is a result of extensive research and development and features a new formula that is non-greasy, gentle, hydrating and moisturising.
In addition to being naturally derived, the Young pHorever Sun pHilter products have been tested and proven to have a sensitivity rating of zero which makes them ideal for all skin types.
Young pHorever Sun pHilter products are cruelty free and stringently adhere to Food and Drug Administration requirements.
