Episode 13: Our focus this week: the fuss around suncream, personal care andcosmetics plus depression in kids…

The last ten days has seen a bombshell study drop showing that an ingredient common in many suncreams (including those for kids) even after one application reaches levels beyond what is deemed ‘safe’ for our bodies. We look at what this is, the potential effects, and how to navigate. We also look at how this can happen and the realities of a very unregulated beauty and personal care market which allows lots of ingredients (often where we have little information as to the long term effects) to be applied to our skin. We know that as much as 70% of what we put on our skin gets absorbed and chemicals in personal care (and suncream) have been found in blood, breast milk and amniotic fluid. We look at how to choose products safely – particularly important for conception, pregnancy and early years of a child’s life. Finally we look at some of the latest research pointing to one reason why we as a society are getting more depressed. This time it is linked to what we put on and put in to our bodies. Especially important as 25% of cases of depression are now occurring before the age of 20. We look at practical ways you can avoid risks around this and how it works.
