Sun blocking on a daily basis is not as healthy as we have been led to believe. If we are constantly sun blocking than we are unable to produce vitamin D through the skin which is one of the skin’s most important functions.
The skin is the largest organ of the body. It has many other important functions as well such as communicating with the environment for the purpose of circadian rhythm balancing. The research on vitamin D and its health promoting properties has truly advanced over the last 10 years.
The main purpose of sunblock and sunscreen is to prevent sunburn which the authorities tell us is connected to the incidence of skin cancer. With the increased usage of sun block over the last several years, the incidence of skin cancer has INCREASED.
AMG believes in mimicking nature because "nature knows best" and "nature is safer". AMG scientists looked at how plants protect themselves from the sun. We all know that plants cannot survive without the sun, and either can humans. How much is too much?
