What's in sun tan lotions, sun-screen ,hair spray and other cosmetics used before coming to the swimming pool. There should be a debate if these chemicals should be allowed in our swimming water or in the air we breathe. It would be a great consideration if we could have a chemical free zone at a pool. Sunscreens contain amino benzoic acid and its esters (PABA), cinnamates, and oxybenzene can cause a skin rash and allergic photo sensitivities. A new nitrosamine known as NPABAO was found in certain sunscreens containing padimate-O as the active ingredient. Nitrosamines themselves can be
Carcinogenic. Miscellaneous compounds, such as fragrances, lanolin, alcohol, and preservatives may also cause skin and eye irritation or sensitization. Many of the popular ingredients in our full-spectrum sun protection products are loaded with toxins. Avobenzone is used a lot, and some scientists have
noted that it breaks down after being on the skin for only an hour
Para Amino benzoic acid (PABA) At best when you use sunscreen your body and ours are absorbing synthetic chemicals, and with experts recommendations to apply generous amounts of the product every few hours, you will likely be absorbing a fair amount. It is hard to believe that all of these chemicals will not have any effect on your system or others sharing the swimming pools and facilities.
