Gisele Bundchen Backpedals, Says Sunscreen Not A Poison After All

We told you last week about Gisele Bundchen‘s claim that she doesn’t use sunscreen because, “I cannot put this poison on my skin. I do not use anything synthetic.”

The story was first seen in the Daily Mail, where Bundchen explained that she avoids skin damage by only exposing herself to the sun before 8 a.m. when, according to her, the rays are at their weakest.

Obviously calling sunscreen a “poison” was not well received by cancer experts, though based on a lot of the comments we received this idea of sunscreen as a toxic substance is a sentiment shared by many of our readers.

Now, though, the supermodel is backpedaling on that initial statement, and has taken to her blog to clarify the situation. “I would like to clarify the misunderstanding about the use of sunblock,” Bundchen wrote. “I do use sunblock but also I try my best not to be exposed to the sun when it is too strong. My line of skincare products are all natural and do not contain SPF. I feel we all need to pay more attention to what we are putting on our skin. I definitely know the importance of using sunscreen and I try to look for more natural options. This is a place where they have a list of some more natural option sunscreens, check it out here.”

Hmm… Okay. Perhaps her initial statement got last in translation?

Her publicist, Amber Clapp, also made a point to add, “Gisele would never say not to use sunscreen because she has had family members who have had skin cancer.” She then continued, “When using sunscreens, she selects ones that are free of parabens, oxybenzone, PABA and retinyl palmitate.”
