    Is There a Perfect Sunscreen? The Safety Debate Continues

    Sunscreen safety has been a long-running debate with the dangers of chemical ingredients weighed against the dangers of long-term sun exposure. Mineral blocks are considered a safer alternative, but even these have come under scrutiny. Now, hidden ingredients known to enhance the effectiveness of SPF are being criticized. In this episode of ASCP Esty Talk, Maggie and Ella discuss UV filters and boosters, and share their take on sunscreen safety.

    The Rogue Pharmacist: Collagen Inside and Out

    The Rogue Pharmacist: Collagen Inside and Out

    Collagen is the most abundant protein found in the body, making up 70 percent of the dermis alone. Over time, production of collagen slows, leading to more than just aging. In this episode of The Rogue Pharmacist with Ben Fuchs, we discuss the three ways in which collagen can be used: applied topically to the skin, injected as a filler, or taken orally as a supplement.

Misinformation

This podcast is marketed as the podcast to learn from and that is educational but there’s so much misinformation , melatonin is not okay to take everyday!!!!!!! Pls do not take melatonin everyday! And there’s more ads then they talk, every 3 min there’s a 3 min ad, it’s just a misinformational money hungry podcast. Very disappointing.
