The Jupiter area beaches are some of the bests in Southeast Florida and require the best sunscreen to protect your skin. There are a few ingredients in sunscreen that you should keep an eye out for to help you choose the best one for your skin.  What ingredients should you look for in sunscreen? 

These ingredients include APPROVED and ingredients to AVOID by the American Academy of Dermatology Association.  The American Academy of Dermatology Association is the largest, most influential, and representative dermatology group in the United States.  Note the following recommendations from the American Academy of Dermatology Association:


Oxybenzone – This common ingredient found in many low-quality, less expensive sunscreens has been shown to penetrate the skin and mimic estrogen, which disrupts hormone production. Additionally, oxybenzone contributes to the bleaching of coral reefs, making it unsafe for our oceans. 

Para-Aminobenzoic Acid (PABA) – This ingredient may cause allergic dermatitis and photosensitivity. It has also been banned in both Australia and Canada. 


Avobenzone – Avobenzone is an effective chemical sunscreen with broad-spectrum, UVA and UVB, protection. This is a good option for all skin tones and skin types. Chemical sunscreens and their absorption into the bloodstream are still being examined by the FDA. 

Zinc Oxide – Zinc oxide is a well-known ingredient in physical sunscreens that is safe, ocean-safe, and provides broad-spectrum sun protection. Just make sure to look out for sunscreens that specify non-nano zinc oxide.
