Gisele: Sunscreen Is 'Poison'

Gisele: Sunscreen Is 'Poison'

The Daily Mail reports that Gisele has once again said something that won't make everyone happy.

According to the paper, the 30-year-old Brazilian said of sunscreen: "I cannot put this poison on my skin...I do not use anything synthetic." The statement was made as she launched her own organic skin care line Sejaa.

She clearly hasn't always felt this way: see her past ads for Nivea Sun.


Tom Brady's wife is known for her earth mother proclivities. A little over a year ago she gave birth to their son Benjamin in a bathtub at home, having prepared for the pain with yoga and meditation because she "didn't want to be drugged up." And she then reported that childbirth didn't hurt one bit.

She then ruffled some feathers in August by saying that breastfeeding should be law. She told Harper's Bazaar UK, "Some people here [in the U.S.] think they don't have to breastfeed, and I think 'Are you going to give chemical food to your child when they are so little?'...I think there should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months."

She then took to her blog to write:

My intention in making a comment about the importance of breastfeeding has nothing to do with the law. It comes from my passion and beliefs about children. Becoming a new mom has brought a lot of questions, I feel like I am in a constant search for answers on what might be the best for my child.
