Experienced Benzene in Neutrogena and Aveeno Cancer Attorneys – File Your Claim Today
Sunscreen is vital if you live in certain states, as well as a summer staple. Sunscreens work in a number of ways: some lie on the screen and form a protective mineral barrier which then reflects away harmful UV rays, while others seep into deeper layers of the skin, creating a chemical barrier upon sun exposure, thereby stopping UV rays from penetrating the skin. Sunscreen from companies such as Neutrogena and Aveeno have come to be trusted over the years on account of their quality, their ease of use as well as their efficacy. However, new information released by the FDA and other public health groups is sounding alarm over the presence of a harmful carcinogen that has been found in unreasonably high levels in these sunscreen called benzene, which is a chemical preservative that was used for decades before its carcinogenity was revealed. Consumers have faithfully used these sunscreens for years and decades, thinking that they are doing the right thing for their skin and bodies, only to find out that the makers of these and other sunscreens have obscured information about the carcinogenic nature of some of the ingredients found in their products. Benzene has been shown to cause reproductive and other fatal cancers such as pancreatic cancer upon prolonged use and exposure given the fact that it tends to accumulate in different organs in the body over time. If you were affected by benzene in common sunscreens from brands such as Aveeno and Neutrogena, you may be able to file a legal claim to recover compensation, and we’re here to help with that.
