Sunscreen Vs Natural Oils

I always found it odd that we use carcinogens to avoid getting sunburnt, in order to avoid cancer. The logic is flawed. But I also know that getting sunburnt is a real risk and one needs to take precautions in order to avoid it. In an ideal world there would be a tested, reliable sunscreen that was made with all natural ingredients and that didn't contain numerous toxins and carcinogens. But these items are few and far between, and the ones I have found contain ingredients that I'm sensitive to, like bees wax and corn.
