Gisele’s sunscreen comment was a ‘translation error’
New York: Supermodel Gisele Bunchen’s representatives have set the record straight after she allegedly described sunscreens as “poison.”
They insist that the Brazilian beauty didn’t mean to appal the dermatologists of the world when she made the remark, reports the New York Daily News.
"I cannot put this poison on my skin," the 30-year-old had said at the Sao Paolo launch of her own organic skin care line. “I do not use anything synthetic.”
“Gisele would never say not to use sunscreen because she has had family members who have had skin cancer,” her publicist Amber Clapp told StyleList.
“She simply stated that her all-natural skin-care line does not have SPF because there is not an all natural SPF available.”
Her rep was quick to point that that Gisele does use sunscreen - just not the ones that contain “parabens, oxybenzone, PABA and retinyl palmitate.”
