Sunblock Cancer Lawsuits

Sunblock Cancer Lawsuits

You may have seen reports on the news that certain sunblocks contain dangerous chemicals. Do you qualify for a sunblock cancer lawsuit? In this article, we look at which sunblocks are dangerous and who is affected.

Benzene Found In Sunblock

In early 2021, a product testing lab tested 300 spray and lotion sunblocks. Out of 300, 78 products were found to contain benzene. Benzene is not a listed ingredient in any sunblock. It is believed the benzene contamination happens during the manufacturing process.

H3 – Benzene Found In After-Sun Products

It is important to remember the testing lab also found benzene in after-sun products. These after-sun products are sprays and lotions to help people with sunburn.

What Is Benzene?

Benzene is a dangerous chemical. Cancer.org lists benzene as a cancer-causing substance. Even small amounts of benzene absorbed in the skin can be dangerous.
