This article is not set up very well.
– I am able to pull the mini descriptions from the plus signs, but am unable to open each for more info. As someone who is allergic to most rub-on/balm type products due to an allergy to beeswax, I am unable to use most of those items. However, the lack of info above in no way helps move me in the right direction.
– The arrows to the right/left of the article imply there is the next page to this article that provides more detail. This is not the case. Also, clicking the arrows does not do anything.
– Lastly, if you pull the information from the EWG, then where is the link to their site that directly relates to these items? If more detail is not to be provided here, then there should be a link to the additional info.
Thank you, CM
Thank you for your feedback. I am writing to direct you to our June 2015 feature “Here Comes The Sun” that has more in-depth information around sun safety. Additionally, here is a link to EWG’s website with full coverage on their 2015 Guide to Sunscreens — that we hope is useful to you.
In addition, here’s a link to an ayurvedic sunscreen made by Pratima: link no longer available. We’re unsure if the products contain beeswax, but the ingredient information for each item is available on the manufacturer’s website: http://www.pratimaskincare.com/neem-vetiver-body-sunscreen.
Please let us know if you have any additional questions or concerns.
