Sunscreen is less harmful to the environment with different designs and better waste management

With spring having started and summer coming soon, we soon need sunscreen again. Sunscreen is a lotion consisting of a mixture of oil and water, with added ultraviolet (UV) filters to reflect or absorb the harmful wavelengths of sunlight. Two types of UV filters exist: - inorganic filters in physical sunscreen, which reflect the UV rays away from the skin but also absorb some UV rays and convert them into heat, - organic filters in chemical sunscreen, which become excited when they absorb UV rays and release the energy of these rays as heat. Both types of filters are beneficial for us, but they can be harmful to animals and the environment. To make sunscreen less harmful to the environment, it is important to make sunscreen less harmful to the environment. In this article, I explain how a different design and different waste management can help:
