How Safe is Your Sunscreen??

Summer has arrived in South Florida, and sun protection is crucial. But sometimes the very products that are meant to protect you are actually doing their own harm. So, how safe is your sunscreen, really?

A recent test conducted by Valisure (a pharmacy dedicated to batch testing medications before they reach consumers) revealed that certain batches of at least 78 different sunscreen and after-sun care products (including sunscreen products for kids) were contaminated with benzene, a potential carcinogen. Exposure can include inhalation, skin absorption, ingestion, and skin and/or eye contact. 

According to the U. S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and various other regulatory agencies, benzene is known to cause cancer in humans.

Protect yourself not only from the sun, but also from potentially harmful products.
