• Concerns have been raised over the safety of
traditional sunscreens to human skin and the
environment. These are reviewed here.
• Understanding these concerns provides
insight on new concepts and approaches for
sunscreens. Part II will highlight these ideas.
Editor’s note: This two-part article is controversial. In part I, it reviews a number of concerns about the safety of traditional sunscreens. In
part II, the authors propose new approaches to move past these issues. Whether or not you feel these concerns are valid, this article is presented in the
spirit of advancing cosmetic science to provoke thought, and in no way suggests consumers should stop using sun protection. We invite you to engage in
this discussion by emailing
