What is Sunscreen?

Sunscreen helps shield the skin from harm caused by exposure to UVA and UVB rays. Exposure to the sun is one of the leading causes of skin cancer. One in five Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70. Sunscreens have been reported to contain benzene. Benzene is a colorless, flammable liquid that is used to make other chemicals.
 

What is Happening with Sunscreen?

Studies conducted by Valisure detected high levels of benzene in several popular brands of sunscreens and after-sun products sold in the United States. Valisure reported that 27% of the samples it tested contained detectable levels of benzene and several of the samples contained nearly three times the concentration limit set by the FDA of 2 parts per million. Fourteen product batches with the highest contamination levels were sold across four different brands including Neutrogena, Sun Bum, CVS Health and Fruit of the Earth.

  • Neutrogena Ultra-Sheer Weightless, SPF 100+
  • Neutrogena Ultra-Sheer Weightless, SPF 70
  • Sun Bum Cool Down Gel
  • Neutrogena Beach Defense Oil-Free Body Spray, SPF 100
  • CVS Health After-Sun Aloe Vera Soothing Spray
  • Neutrogena Beach Defense Body Spray, SPF 50
  • Neutrogena Invisible Daily Defense Body Sunscreen Broad Spectrum, SPF 60+
  • Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera Gel
Neutrogena Sunscreen Recalled

Benzene is listed as a carcinogenic by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the World Health Organization. According to the American Cancer Society, benzene exposure has been linked to leukemia and other cancers of the blood. Exposure to benzene through skin absorption has been found to be particularly concerning given the association with blood cancers.

The FDA regulates both sunscreens as drug products and after-sun products as cosmetics. Currently it designates benzene as a “class 1” solvent that should not be used in drug production as a result of its high toxicity levels. Valisure has requested that the FDA take action and recall the contaminated sunscreens. Valisure has also recommended that the FDA set more stringent limits for benzene in drugs and cosmetics.

Client Testimonials

As a former client, I would highly recommend The Lidji Firm to handle your personal injury case.  I am an ex-baseball player who had pre-existing back injuries and was worried that would affect the outcome in my case.

The Lidji Firm handled the issue of my pre-existing injuries and my settlement was a game changer.  If you have been injured for any reason, you should call The Lidji Firm today to protect your rights.

I would recommend The Lidji Firm team to handle your case.  The Lidji Firm team was dedicated to prosecuting my case and went beyond the call of duty obtaining me my settlement.

When I first called The Lidji Firm, I thought was a minor injury when in fact, I ended up getting back surgery as a result of my injuries.

The Lidji Firm team assisted me with locating doctors that were both top-notch and who waited for payment until after my case was settled, so my credit was not affected by the accident. If you are in a trucking accident like I was, I would call The Lidji Firm today.
