LOS ANGELES, Sept. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Sunscreens have been in existence for close to 100 years. The aim was to block ultraviolet (UV) light, the harmful rays of the sun. Sunscreens began with pasty zinc oxide that no one would use. Then scientists created sunscreens with clear chemicals that absorbed UV light. In 1944, Coppertone® became the first mass marketed sunscreen. Leap to now, when about a billion dollars' worth of sunscreen are sold each year in the United States.
UV light causes skin cancer, in particular melanoma which is the second most aggressive cancer topped only by pancreatic cancer. UV light also prematurely ages the skin, so it's extremely important to avoid the sun as much as possible or protect the skin with sunscreen.
There are 17 individual sunscreen ingredients that are FDA approved: 15 of these are clear chemicals that absorb UV light and two are made of minerals that reflect UV light. Of these 15, nine are known endocrine disruptors. To be effective, chemical sunscreens need to be rubbed into the skin 20 minutes before sun exposure. They do a pretty good job at blocking UV light, but they actually get used up as the sun shines on them. In fact, some sunscreens lose as much as 90% of their effectiveness in just an hour, so they need to be reapplied often. This is not the case with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, the two mineral, or physical, sunscreens. These two work very differently – they sit on the surface of the skin and physically block UV light.
Chemical sunscreens don't sit on the surface of the skin – they soak into it and quickly find their way into the bloodstream. They scatter all over the body without being detoxified by the liver and can be detected in blood, urine, and breast milk for up to two days after a single application. That would be just fine if they were uniformly safe – but they're not.
Nine of the 15 chemical sunscreens are considered endocrine disruptors. Those are chemicals that interfere with the normal function of hormones. The hormones most commonly disturbed are estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and thyroid. Endocrine, like some ingredients in chemical sunscreens, can cause abnormal development of fetuses and growing children. They cause early puberty and premature breast development in girls, and small and undescended testicles in boys. They cause low sperm counts and infertility. Endocrine disruptors that act like estrogen can contribute to the development of breast and ovarian cancers in women, and other endocrine disruptors may increase the chance of prostate cancer in men.
Sounds pretty unsettling, doesn't it? But there's more. Chemical sunscreens function by absorbing UV light. In the process, some may get used up and mutate. Some generate DNA-damaging chemicals called "free radicals." These may lead to cancers.
Rejuve MD Sunscreen is the newest and most innovative sunblock available in over a hundred years. Rejuve MD is an anti-aging sunblock that includes only Zinc Oxide as the sunblock without the need to use chemical sunscreens. Rejuve MD sunblock is also unique in that it not only prevents UV radiation sun damage from both UVB but also UVA light and it also has anti-aging and anti-cancer forming natural ingredients like turmeric and caffeine. Rejuve MD is tinted in color so that it will not leave a person powdery white when they apply the sunblock. It has taken Dr. Alex Khadavi over 10 years to develop Rejuve MD Sunscreen. Dr. Kadavi has taken from his many years of research in skin cancer at UCLA to the National Institute of Health and UCSF. Dr. Alex Khadavi has fused his knowledge and research in skin cancer and incorporated it to develop Rejuve MD Sunscreen, with the power of natural ingredients that not only prevent aging but reverse the process and can potentially reverse cancer cell formation.
