This post is about Jason C Effects Sunscreen SPF 30 — the full name is Jason C Effects Pure Natural Anti-Wrinkle Day Lotion SPF 30 Sunscreen. In the midst of this sizzlin’ summer, I cannot stress enough to check out your sunscreen at the Environmental Working Group’s site. It’s a non-biased group that checks out ingredients for hazards. They are NOT associated with the FDA and will test products and post results. That simple.
Products with low scores are GOOD, and the score is in a GREEN color for GO. Products or ingredients that can cause cancer or allergies or what have you get HIGH scores and they show up in RED for STOP. Couldn’t be simpler.
In fact, you can search by product, ingredient or company – makeup, skincare, hair, nails, you name it.
What ISN’T simple is the sheer fact that you can start typing in your everyday products and realize that all of them are eventually going to kill you. Allright, I’m exaggerating, of course!
Is ANYTHING 100% SAFE these days?
I started using and LOVING Jason C Effects Sunscreen SPF 30 .

I’m not saying Jason products is TRICKING anyone in any way. Overall, their line is free of parabens, no oxybenzone which is great and a boatload of flower extracts all occurring at the front of the ingredient list, which is good, because ingredients must be listed with highest ingredients first. Most of their high hazard ingredients came with a notice that the EWG had “Limited” information, meaning research could still be going on about that ingredient.
I’m just saying even if a product says it’s pure, or natural, still look them up on the EGW site and know what’s going onto your skin – because it’s going directly into your bloodstream.
Jason, we had a good thing going. I enjoyed you every day for months. But I don’t want even a MODERATE or LOW hazard in my day to day routine – how bout NO HAZARD?
Here’s to a Hazard Free Everything and Especially Summer,
