Benzene in Sunscreen

Wolf Haldenstein is investigating claims that certain sunscreens and after-sun gels contain high levels of benzene, a chemical linked to certain blood cancers.  There is no safe or permissible level of benzene in sunscreen, but recent independent laboratory testing has shown that some sunscreens and after-sun gels contain levels of 2 parts per million or higher, a level considered by some studies to be particularly dangerous.

In particular, Wolf Haldenstein is investigating claims of high levels of benzene in the following sunscreens and gels:

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Weightless Spray (SPF 70 or 100+)
Neutrogena Beach Defense Oil-Free Body Sunscreen (SPF 50 or 100)
Neutrogena Invisible Daily Defense Body Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 60+

Sun Bum Cool Down Gel
CVS Health After Sun Aloe Very Soothing Spray
Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera Gel

If you have purchased any of these products recently, it is possible that you may have bought a product with dangerously high levels of benzene.  You may call (800) 575-0735 or (212) 545-4774 to speak to an attorney regarding the data breach.
