Paula Begoun's site looks really interesting! I'm planning to go over the ingredients listed as best I can, but I'm hoping others with better bioscience chops will be inspired by the onset of summertime to give us feedback on these substances.
Since I'm type O, I am constantly stymied in my search for sunscreens by the pervasive aloe or coconut oil in virtually every sunscreen I've considered (and wheat in shampoo, and orange or strawberry "cleansing oils" in otherwise innocuous-looking soaps -- ARRGGH! Olive or tea tree oil for ME!). I do plan to follow Stephen's advice about antioxidants INside, as well. I'm just a bit shy yet about giving up the old-fashioned method of topical preparations. A hat, long sleeves, gloves (yep!), and hiding in the shade can only do so much, right? #~;-)
anyway, I'm re-posting the link to the site, in case others are interested.
