For a list of ingredients with pictures for Sunscreens, check out this link on: Fibro Buddies on Guaifenesin Protocol.

Coppertone Clearly Sheer sunscreen SPF 30 in the YELLOW bottle is currently salicylate free. (Blue can is NOT sal free) As always, PLEASE read through the ingredient list on the bottle before you buy, using your salicylate Quick Check to be sure there’s no sals that have been added! And let me know!

Aveeno Baby SPF 50 is protocol safe. Be careful though because the other SPF levels are not safe. It can be found at Babies R Us.

Aveeno natural protection mineral block 30 is currently safe.

Solbar 50 is currently sal safe.

One of the admins on the GuaiGroup said this: “use plain zinc oxide mixed with my every day lotion. It works great. I am very fair and burn easily. My dermatologist has endorsed this!”

I googled a recipe for making sunscreen with lotion, and here is what I found, in percentages. PLEASE be careful when handling Zinc Oxide, wear gloves and a mask if at all possible!
For a Low SPF 2-5 use 5% Zinc Oxide
For Moderate SPF 6-11 use 10% Zinc Oxide
For High SPF 12-19 use 15% Zinc Oxide
For Ultra HIgh SPF>20 use 25% Zinc Oxide

Taken from Soap Body and Spa.com “Rice Bran Oil (Oryza sativa): is an uncommon, nourishing, and wholesome oil abundant in vitamin E. This oil has its own natural SPF, and has anti oxidant properties. Rice bran oil is used mainly in products for dry and mature aging skin”

    For my face, I use Neutrogena Pure & Free Liquid Daily Sunblock, SPF 50. Don’t buy the SPF 70; it has sals!

    Active Ingredients: Titanium Dioxide (5%), Zinc Oxide (3%), Water, C12 15 Alkyl Benzoate, Trisiloxane, Dimethicone, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Silica, Cetyl/PEG/PPG 10/1 Dimethicone, Polyglyceryl 4 Diisostearate/Polyhydroxystearate/Sebacate, PPG 12/SMDI Copolymer, Bisabolol (L-Alpha), Magnesium Sulfate, Caprylyl Glycol, DMDM Hydantoin, Triethoxycaprylylsilane

    We LOVE the body lotion, face cream and night cream from http://www.andrearose.com! There is no SPF though.

  3. Nichole says:

    Like many people who can’t tolerate sals, I react very badly to benzoates. This has really complicated my life, as even the “sal free” merchants often use benzoates. It’s been a rough process of trial and error (and lots of benadryl) to find products that work. But Cluere sunscreen and the daytime face lotion have worked well for me (I recently bought a sunscreen that I think is safe, but I haven’t been brave enough to try it yet: Kiss My Face Hydresia). I seem to be able to use shea butter without a reaction (though I worry that one day it will cause a reaction) so I use it as a body moisturizer, straight from the tin. I have a friend who has specially formulated a goat’s milk soap for me. If others are interested, I can post a link to her shop. I’ve also had relatively good luck with MAC products for makeup (but read ingredients carefully).

      Nichole, many of the people who can’t use sals are not allergic to them at all! lol 😀 We have to stay away from them because they block our fibromyalgia medication that reverses the symptoms.

      But it’s so great to hear that others actually benefit from these lists too! I’m glad you have found some products that work, thank you for sharing!! 🙂

    Looking for topica pain reliever ,was told traumeel is OK. Is it? You can reply to straightshooterusa@live.com thanks!

    • Christine says:

      hello anonymous! 🙂 I really know nothing about traumeel except what I find when I google it! It says it’s a homeopathic treatment, and from what I understand about homeopath, it is incredibly diluted to the point I don’t normally caution people about the salicylates in them. That said, it truly does depend on how sensitive you are to salicylates, so it’s up to you! If you have an allergy to them, I wouldn’t use homeopath stuff. If you are asking because you are on the Guaifenesin Protocol to treat your fibromyalgia, then I think you wouldn’t need to worry about it. Does that help?

    Hi Christine, thank you for being here for us. I finally got off my last pain med 9/7/16, so much burning acidic feeling pain, I have tried some OTC pain formulas, nothing is helping. I am waiting for the 300 LA from Fibro Pharmacy, I don’t know if I should wait til I get out of the Tramadol withdrawal or start it as soon as I get it. Question, is Palmer’s cocoa butter formula still O.K. to use as fibromyalgiatreatment has it on their list? Thank you, I hope things get better for you. Marsha

    • Christine says:

      Hi Marsha! Way to go getting off your pain meds!!! That is a HUGE deal!

      Yes, I would wait till you get out of withdrawal before starting the protocol. You need to be observing your symptoms increasing/decreasing to help you find your clearing dose on the guai. So if you can wait a couple weeks till you are past the withdrawal, you will have a much easier time figuring out what your clearing dose will be. And don’t worry about the diet just yet either. One thing at a time!

      You just made a HUGE change by going off your pain meds (with the help of your doc I hope?), so let’s see how you do with that before making another huge change by starting the protocol.

      We have seen cocoa butter be a problem for many people in causing them to slow down clearing. Weather it’s from partially blocking or fully blocking, it’s slowed people down, so totally not worth it! THere have been companies that have made cheaper cocoa butter by adding plant oils to it and thus blocking people. We sure hope they aren’t still doing that, but so not worth the risk to us. fibropharmacy is mapping people, so they can know if a person is clearing well or not. Here’s my post on this, hope it helps! <3 http://christinescozycorner.ca/butters-like-cocoa-shea-and-mango-seed/
