Does sunscreen normally contain benzene?

No. Benzene is not present in any sunscreen on the market as one of the product's ingredients. It ended up in sunscreen because of manufacturing contamination.

The presence of benzene in sunscreen is the result of manufacturing contamination

Benzene, the dangerous chemical, has never been one of the ingredients present in sunscreen. The chemical is not supposed to be anywhere close to the sunscreen manufacturing process. The companies whose sunscreen was tainted with benzene have no idea where the chemical originated from and how it ended up in their products. However, one thing is for sure – the existence of benzene in sunscreen is due to manufacturing contamination. According to companies, benzene in sunscreen occurs as a contaminant, a byproduct of manufacturing, or in producing another raw material such as alcohol or aloe vera.

If you have been using one of the products found to contain benzene, we strongly advise you to cease applying it and to replace it with a safe one. Benzene, a human carcinogen, is a highly flammable chemical that occurs naturally in crude oil, gasoline, and cigarette smoke. It is also used to manufacture plastic, nylon, and synthetic products. The chemical is also employed to make lubricants, rubbers, dyes, detergents, drugs, and pesticides.
