Do the recalls affect all sunscreen products contaminated with benzene?

No. Only two companies have recalled five sunscreen products each so far, which means that there are plenty of sunscreens tainted with the chemical on the market. We suggest you opt for mineral sunscreen instead of chemical sunscreen so as to avoid exposure to benzene.

Only 10 of the 78 sunscreen products with benzene have been taken off the market

Sadly, numerous companies prefer to ignore and turn their backs to serious issues such as the presence of benzene in their sunscreen products, a chemical that can easily be absorbed through the skin when consumers use these products. So far, only Johnson & Johnson and Coppertone have voluntarily recalled 5 sunscreen products each in the summer of 2021, which means that 68 harmful sunscreen products are still on the market.

Our advice for people who are afraid of using sunscreen anymore is to cease using the products tainted with benzene if they have been doing so and find alternatives, such as mineral sunscreen. Since the majority of the products found to contain benzene were chemical aerosol sunscreen, mineral sunscreen is considered to be significantly healthier and safer. However, if you are looking for new, safe, non-toxic sunscreen and do not know where to start, we can help you with free products from ethical companies. It is important to note that people suffering from a disease will be prioritized.
