l Oxybenzone, octinoxate and homosalate
Found in many sunscreens, lip balms, and other products with SPF, these chemicals can cause endometriosis and can pose a risk to reproductive systems.
The site lists other chemicals that can be harmful to corals: octinoxate (octyl methoxycinnamate), homosalate
, octocrylene, avobenzone, octisalate, homosalate
, fragrances and nano-particles ("clear"; TiO2; ZnO).
Octisalate and homosalate
to fully enhance UVB radiation defense.
Key ingredients include avobenzone, homosalate
, octisalate, and octocrylene.
The frequency of each active component identified among the various samples was as follows: avobenzone, 88% (n=30); octo crylene, 82% (n = 28); octisalate, 73% (n=25); oxybenzone, 44% (n=15); homosalate
, 41% (n = 14); bemotrinizol, 38% (n=13); titanium dioxide, 32% (n=11); octinoxate, 17% (n=6); ensulizol, 17% (n=6); iscotrizinol, 5% (n=2); padimate O, 5% (n=2); octyltriazone, 3% (n=1).
Benzophenone-3, 3-Benzylidene camphor, Padimate 0 and homosalate
are additional hormone disruptors commonly found in sunscreen.

In particular, avoid: parabens (butyl-, methyl-, and propyl-), PABAs (para-aminobenzoic acid), padimate-O or parsol 1789, and benzophenone, homosalate
or octy-methoxycinnamate (octinoxate).
Many contained potentially harmful chemicals like benzophenone, homosalate
and octyl methoxycinnamate, which are known to mimic estrogen.
Many contained potentially harmful chemicals like Benzophenone, homosalate
and octyl methoxycinnamate (also called octinoxate), which are known to mimic naturally occurring bodily hormones and can thus throw the body's systems out of whack.
Mindy Pennybacker responds: I should have described zinc oxide and titanium dioxide as inorganic sunscreens and benzophenone, homosalate
, and octymethoxycinnamate as organic sunscreens; both types are chemicals.
1) reported on the in vitro and in vivo "estrogenicity" of six ultraviolet (UV) filters: benzophenone-3 (Bp-3), homosalate
(HMS), 4-methyl-benzylidene camphor (4-MBC), octyl-methoxycinnamate (OMC), octyl-dimethyl PABA (OD-PABA), and butyl-methoxydibenzoylmethane (BMDM).
