Nice list Bargavi, would be so nice if these could be good on our APST skins 🙂

AM – I have a doubt, does skingredient tool detect latin names? Like Pterocarpus Santalinus for an example?


I ve that doubt too @catonthewall .of these biotique red sandalwood spf 50 had good reviews on worldwidenet .the cost is really good for spf50.i hope it ll really translate into spf50 and protect our skin.

i read in a website that substances like Retinyl Palmitate, Oxybenzone, nano particles of zinc oxide and titanium oxide (as they can mix into our blood stream)

re harmful to our health.that’s why i am desperate for a natural one. atleast almost natural.

by the way which is better for our body, nivea bronze sun protection or vaseline healthy white?


More details here. 🙂
