Natural + Newsworthy: Sunscreen Safety, Best Cities for Skin and Unacceptable Levels
Each week the MVO team selects the latest and greatest from across the Internet--Natural + Newsworthy resources worth your time. This week includes sunscreen safety, protecting children during the summer months, best cities for your skin (hint: Bay Area is #2), the emergence of our CEO as a celebrity in the ground-breaking documentary Unacceptable Levels.
A great list of the best cities in the US that are most beneficial for your skin--of course we're excited to see the #2. Each city was evaluated based on a number of criteria established by Wu and the team, including number of dermatologists per capita, skin cancer rates, climate, air pollution, tanning beds per capita, and percentage of adults of exercise regularly and smoke.
"In addition to being sensitive, I’m super picky about smell/taste/texture, and I like my products to add something nourishing to my skin. These don’t taste all “lipsticky,” they feel nice on, wear well, and have healthy plant oils, antioxidants and many organic ingredients. I also like packaging to be both pretty and functional. "

"Fifty years ago, a marine biologist named Rachel Carson began publishing a series of articles in The New Yorker, sounding the alarm about the dangers of exposure to chemicals and the failure of the chemical industry and government regulators to protect people from those dangers. Later collected in the book Silent Spring, Carson's prescient insights are the subject of an anniversary feature this week by HuffPost's environmental reporter Lynne Peeples. She delivers not only a tribute to Carson but a reminder that her work is more relevant than ever."
