BENZOPHENONE-3

Description

Same as oxybenzone. A broad spectrum sunblock. Its protection is not strong, but is stable over a period of time. In small concentrations, used to stabilize product formulation. Can be irritating. Is shown to be harmful to coral reefs - consider avoiding bathing in coral reef areas when wearing a product with this ingredient. It can penetrate the skin and get absorbed into bloodstream faster than other popular filters available in the US. The study that produced this finding did not address any potential health effects of the absorption
