Sunscreen Recall Lawsuits in Missouri by Attorney David Hughes

Share this post:

Sun exposure is linked to skin cancer, and sunscreen is a common way to block the ultraviolet radiation associated with skin damage and protect against cancer. However, information has emerged that certain types of sunscreen contain Benzene.  Benzene is an industrial chemical that is a known human carcinogen, and dozens of sunscreen products recently tested positive for Benzene. This has led to demands for product recalls and questions about the safety of sunscreens which contain Benzene.  Recent findings indicate that people who use sunscreen in an effort to avoid skin cancer may actually be increasing their risk of developing other types of cancers, and that regular exposure to Benzene is a major factor for blood tissue cancers including leukemia, myeloma and lymphoma.

Examples of popular sunscreen brands tested by Valisure have detected Benzene, and when sunscreen containing Benzene is put on skin, the body absorbs it, and the chemical enters the bloodstream, which can cause cancer. Benzene exposure is linked to acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL), multiple myeloma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Valisure’s research indicates that many popular brands contain Benzene including Neutrogena, Aveeno, Up and Up, Sunburn, CVS health, Solimo, Equate, Coppertone, Walgreens, Babyjanicx, Banana Boat, GoodSense, TopCare, Max Block, and EltaMD.

Neutrogena is owned by Johnson and Johnson, and it recently issued a voluntary recall of some Neutrogena skin products in response to Valisure’s testing results.
