These are the chemicals in sunscreen that are absorbed through the blood

These are active ingredients present in sunscreens that are absorbed through the skin and contaminate the blood.

The FDA, Food and Drug Administration, released the list of chemicals in sunscreens that contaminate the blood with just one application.

After a first study in May last year that tested positive for the presence in blood of some ingredients that are part of sunscreen formulas, the FDA decided to expand the investigation.

This time, the chemicals found were:

The problem is that the absorption levels of these chemicals is higher than allowed and there are still not enough studies on their safety for human health.

In any case, the FDA recommends continuing its use since unprotected sun exposure would cause greater damage, including skin cancer.

The best care to avoid sunburn is to expose yourself at the recommended times, wear light clothing that covers the skin, hats, appropriate glasses, stay in the shade, hydrate, etc.
