Reproductive Toxicity of Sunscreen

Benzophenone-3 (also called oxybenzone) is one of the most frequently used ultraviolet light filters used in sunscreen and personal care products. A 2020 study found a higher percentage of females (progenies) to males were born to mothers exposed topically to benzophenone-3. An altered estrogen and testosterone balance, female infertility and other problems were associated with this endocrine disrupting chemical.
