7 sunscreen chemicals are rapidly absorbed into your bloodstream

Seven chemicals commonly found in sunscreens can be absorbed into the bloodstream at levels exceeding safety thresholds; after just one use. That’s according to a study published…by the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, an arm of the FDA…

The Center’s director said further industry testing is needed to determine the safety and effects of the ingredients, especially with regular use.

The environmental working group, a consumer organization which advocates for sunscreen safety, among other things, reacted to the findings.

It says companies need to urgently test for potential harm to kids and from long-term use.

Makes sense to me.
