According to the FDA, Americans should continuously wear sunscreen as it brings protective benefits in our bodies such as:

  • Preventing sunburn
  • Decrease signs of aging on the skin
  • Reduce the risk of developing skin cancer

Also, another updated information from the FDA regarding the safe and non-safe ingredients of some sunscreens has been on a trend today. There are proposed two ingredients that are said to be Generally Recognized as Safe and Effective. These are:

  • Titanium dioxide
  • Zinc oxide

Another two ingredients that are not considered as Generally Recognized as Safe and Effective are:

  • Para-aminobenzoic acid 
  • Tolamine salicylate

While additional data is needed, these following ingredients are said to absorb in the body’s bloodstream and remain in the body for a period of time according to the FDA:

  • Ecamsule
  • Octocrylene
  • Oxybenzone
  • Octinoxate
  • Octisalate
  • Avobenzone
  • Homosalate

However, the FDA does not conclude that these ingredients absorbed in the body through the skin can be considered as unsafe. 

They still strongly require the public to wear sunscreen and protective clothing for safety.
