I think that the way this was meant is that it tells you that you can store things like app settings and not something like sms history, things that could go in a datastore instead!

Sunscreen PSA

tl;dr ~ stick with unmicronized zinc oxide

As summer approaches, I thought it would be a good time to share a few notes about sunscreen. I am horribly allergic to the combo of most sunscreens + sunlight (yes, I can wear sunscreen in the dark without problems ~ super useful), which really got me wondering what in blazes was going on. First, a quick disclaimer that I’m not in the field and not an expert ~ I’m an avid consumer looking to share some notes and learn more.

There are two major types of sunscreen ingredients available today ~ chemical absorbers and physical blockers. 

Chemical absorbers (e.g. oxybenzone, octinoxate, avobenzone) absorb into the skin and, in turn, absorb harmful rays. This is already sounding like a terrible idea. If you’re interested in the gross details, Google around and you’ll learn that oxybenzone rapidly oxidizes in response to sunlight, generating potent electrophiles which inactivate important antioxidants in the epidermis. Octinoxate mimics human hormones, is associated with endocrine disruption, and may cause cellular changes or cell death. You’ll also find that many other substances, such as avobenzone, are unstable and require mixing with chemical stabilizers to prolong effectiveness.

Finally, if you favor spray-on or powder sunscreen, know that you’re basically wielding a weaponized medley of chemical absorbers. Forget what it does to someone with chemically-induced photoallergies like me if I happen to be downwind ~ if this stuff is terrible to wear on your skin, consider what it does when you inhale it.

Physical blockers (e.g. zinc oxide, titanium dioxide) sit on the surface of the skin and reflect harmful rays. The challenge here is that it’s often less waterproof, mixed with stickier/stinkier natural ingredients, and/or leaves a white residue. Recent advances have really reduced these annoyances and you can test out a range of these at Whole Foods. I favor zinc oxide as it protects against a broader spectrum (covers UVA1, UVA2, and UVB) than titanium dioxide does. I also avoid micronized versions (<100nm) as tests have shown that nanoparticles are absorbed into the bloodstream and remain in circulation days after use.

If this was interesting and you'd like to learn more, check out the Environmental Working Group's site at http://ewg.org/sunscreen or http://ewg.org/skindeep. They are an amazing learning resource, complete with checklists and kid-friendly videos, and maintain a sizable database on sunscreens, lotions, and more.

I’m hopeful that research and science will continue finding newer, better protectants, especially as consumers grow more well-informed. Play safely in the sun this summer!

zinc oxide and titanium oxide are essentially white paint pigments (I'll assume that nobody would use lead white in sunscreen).

Can we have some flexibility with the number of collapsible messages and the collapsing threshold. These two constraints are really blocking many use cases.
