Everyone is using skincare products nowadays. Surprisingly, some of your most loved brands can prove to be as harmful to cause skin cancer. Benzene sunscreen lawsuit is there to defend you if you are someone who has been diagnosed with skin diseases after using a product.

Each year, new skincare brands and products pop up. But only a few realize that researching the ingredients that go into making these products is crucially important. It’s important to know exactly what it is that you’re putting on your face. 

In research, experts have found various popular brands putting harmful amounts of Benzene in their sunscreens. Let’s see what they are. 

What is a benzene sunscreen lawsuit?

A benzene sunscreen lawsuit is a claim against skincare product manufacturing companies where the products contain excessive concentrations of Benzene. 

Benzene is a chemical which when used in excessive amounts, can cause cancer in humans, known as leukemia. Ironically, sunscreens are made to protect one’s skin from the harmful rays of the sun and prevent skin cancer.

Which brands have been recalled?

Five products from Johnson & Johnson have been recalled. This recall was made when a lab known as Valisure claimed that it had found dangerous amounts of Benzene in these products and had filed a petition with the FDA. 

The products are as follows:

  1. NEUTROGENA Ultra Sheer aerosol sunscreen
  2. NEUTROGENA Cool Dry Sport aerosol sunscreen 
  3. NEUTROGENA Beach Defense aerosol sunscreen
