The Toxic Truth About Sunscreens
Ultraviolet radiation, more commonly referred to as UV rays, remains the primary culprit for more than half of all human skin cancer cases in the world, reports a recent research from the Boston University School of Medicine, Department of Dermatology.
But without enough exposure to the sun, the body would lack sufficient levels of vitamin D — an essential vitamin for healthy bone growth and immune system function.
For most people, the simple solution would be to use sunscreen. But as it turns out, sunscreen isn’t exactly the healthier or the safe commodity in the market.
Some Toxic Ingredients In Sunscreen
While sunscreen is clinically formulated to protect the skin against premature aging and cancer, recent bodies of study show that some sunscreen products that are potentially toxic to the human body. These include: 2-hydroxy-4 methoxybenzophenone, 2-ethylhexyl-p- methoxycinnamate, 2-ethylhexylsalicylate (octylsalicylate), and salicylic acid 3,3,5- trimethcyclohexyl ester (homosalate).
The first in the long list of potentially toxic sunscreen products, 2-hydroxy-4 methoxybenzophenone, works a UV stabilizer in many traditional sunscreen products. Recent animal-testing, however, have revealed that HMD can potentially cause lesions in both the liver and the kidney.
Related bodies of research suggest that 2-ethylhexyl-p- methoxycinnamate could potentially cause the growth of tumors in the human body.
