It said it hasn't asked the public to stop using sunscreens that contain avobenzone, oxybenzone
, octocrylene, or ecamsule.
* UVA and UVB absorbers: dioxybenzone, oxybenzone
Reef relief: Six sunscreens that don't contain oxybenzone
or octinoxate ?
The primary outcome was the maximum plasma concentration of avobenzone, from days 1 to 7; secondary outcomes were maximum plasma concentrations of sunscreen ingredients oxybenzone
, octocrylene, and ecamsule over the same period of time.
See those on ingredients are oxybenzone

is allergenic and it is a potential endocrine disruptor.
The study found maximum plasma levels of the chemicals it tested for -- avobenzone, oxybenzone
, octocrylene and in one sunscreen ecamsule -- to be well above the level of 0.5 nanograms per milliliter (ng/mL) at which FDA guidelines call for further safety testing.
* Use sunscreen without oxybenzone
and octinoxate, chemical ingredients that harm marine animals and coral reefs.
The four chemicals studied -- avobenzone, oxybenzone
However, some sunscreens contain potentially damaging chemicals like oxybenzone
, octinoxate, PABA, homosalate, octosalate and avobenzone that disrupt coral reproduction, cause coral bleaching, and damage coral DNA.
In this study, we focused on the chemical UV filter compounds ecamsule, oxybenzone
, and menthyl anthranilate.
The sunscreens contain no harmful chemicals, such as oxybenzone
or octinoxate, artificial fragrance, nano particles, or parabens.
