A group of researchers have asked the FDA to pull sunscreen brands that show evidence of a cancer causing chemical as an active ingredient. According to Craig Downs, the executive director of Haereticus Environmental Laboratory, the active ingredient octocrylene may degrade to benzophenone, a suspected carcinogen that can interfere with key hormones like estrogen.
According to the New York Post, there were nearly 2,400 products including well known brands that carried the ingredient and were on the market. Coppertone, Banana Boat and Neutragena were a few brands on the list.
