Environmental Health Perspectives: Independent Sun Care Product Screening for Benzene Contamination

A study published in Environmental Health Perspectives titled Independent Sun Care Product Screening for Benzene Contamination covers Valisure’s market assessment of commonly available sun care products by independently sourcing and testing different brands and formulations.

Benzene is a well-documented Group 1 carcinogen and environmental hazard. Benzene poses a health risk from exposure routes that include inhalation, ingestion, dermal absorption, and skin or eye contact, even in trace amounts. Benzene was detected in many sunscreens and after-sun care products, and Valisure notified the FDA through a citizen petition filed on 24 May 2021. To better determine the scope of contamination, Valisure continued to analyze sunscreen and after-sun care products through a crowdsourced study that allowed for broader product sampling and facilitated access to sun care products that were sold before lab sourcing efforts.
