Gisele Bundchen Doesn't Hate Sunscreen

Gisele Bundchen Doesn't Hate Sunscreen

Her words were recently twisted and misunderstood, and now Gisele Bundchen is setting the record straight.

While promoting her skincare line Sejaa recently, the Victoria’s Secret model recently was quoted as saying, “I cannot put this poison on my skin. I do not use anything synthetic” when talking about certain products that contain SPF.

Taking that and running with it, reports quickly claimed that Bundchen said that she doesn’t wear sunscreen at all because it’s poison.

Her rep quickly attempted to clear the air by making this statement: “They misquoted her due to a language barrier. Gisele would never say not to use sunscreen because she has family members who have had skin cancer.”

The real story is that Gisele does use sunscreen – just not harsh formulations.

“When using sunscreens she selects ones that are free of parabens, oxybenzone, PABA, and retinyl palmitate,” says the rep. “She buys her sunscreen at Whole Foods, so she can find ones that are free of harsh chemicals.”
