Oxybenzone is an estrogen mimicking chemical used in sunscreens with a high Sun Protection Factor (SPF). Oxybenzone’s function is to ‘filter’ ultra violet light and convert it from light rays to heat waves. When light is converted to heat in the basal (lower) layers of the skin, damage to new growing cells occurs due to the high amount of free radicals generated.
Studies consider oxybenzone an emerging human toxin, environmental pollutant and drinking water contaminant that should be avoided. Hawaii recently banned the use of sunscreen products that contain oxybenzone because of its deleterious impact on marine ecosystems, particularly coral reefs.
