Is swallowing sunscreen toxic?
« on: 19/03/2009 22:04:57 »
It's that time of year when the days are getting longer and I therefore start worrying about sunscreen.  I'm an avid distance runner, so this time of year I tend to lather myself up in sunscreen whenever I head out for a run.  So here's my question: on long runs, especially those where it's warm and I sweat a lot, I end up with sweaty sunscreen dripping into my mouth.  This is pretty much inevitable, even though I buy the "sports" sunscreen that claims to be to be sweat-proof.  So is sunscreen toxic in the small amounts I end up swallowing?

A bit of zinc oxide or titanium dioxide won't hurt you. [:)]

Wearing a sweatband should also help while you are running.

A bit of ... titanium dioxide won't hurt you.

I think what is says speaks loudly about how a lot of society tends to look at whats alright for a man but not a women......They view wonen who want to be more sexual as tramps etc...but its ok for a man... so I dont fel it is sexist but rather questioning the whole idea?
