Online pharmacy and lab Valisure found benzene in 78 of nearly 300 sprays and lotions tested — about 27% — including products sold by Banana Boat and CVS.

Originally, sunscreens were loaded with PABA paraminobenzoicacid, a known carcinogen and it had to be removed. However the whole idea of sunscreen is perverse, since, while it prevents a sunburn, it doesn't filter rays that give you skin cancer; it only tempts you to stay out longer collecting them !  clearly it should NEVER BE USED ON INFANTS.

Do we, can we, trust the FDA? My adventures with products clearly unchecked on the market, including Aspartame, which could have killed me, and a shampoo Pantene had labeled "No More Frizz" clearly intended for African hair that has almost left me bald suggest that department has a long way to go before I will ever trust it; and here comes another: Sun Block. It's useless for skin cancer so please don't slather it all over your children. Their skin absorbs like your intestines do, you can give them vitamins and hydrate them through their skin. These supposedly protective chemicals can spell serious disease later on. I'd like to see a shakeup at the FDA, and find out what makes them tick.
