Sun lotion causes skin cancer?

There is some controversy surrounding sun lotions. Some studies concluded sun lotion actually increases the risk of skin cancer. The reason for this could be the chemicals in the lotion and the block on vitamin D production.

What do you think? Does it cause more harm than good?

RE: Sun lotion causes skin cancer?

I don't think it's sun lotion per se that causes skin cancer - it's that people don't use it properly. Most people don't apply enough lotion, or apply it frequently enough to protect their skin. As for the various chemicals in the lotions, I'd imagine that's only a problem when you buy cheap, unbranded products, although I don't really know enough about the subject to comment fully on this. I have heard that buying creams and lotions endorsed by national health organisations - particularly Australian ones, where skin cancer is a real problem - usually guarantees that the product is effective.

When it comes to vitamin D production, you only need about 10 minutes exposure a day to get what your body needs. Going out in the sun in the early morning for 10 - 15 minutes without lotion should take care of that.

I have decided to start using organic sunscreens. Whether is truly increases the likelihood of cancer, I am somewhat doubtful. However, there are harsh chemicals that you certainly aren't benefiting from.

RE: Sun lotion causes skin cancer?

Sun Lotion should not cause skin cancer, however, lotions with too many additives can create problems (such as accelerating skin cancer). When choosing a product, make sure the sun protection factor is very high (30 spf or more), and the ingredients are as pure as possible. Your skin will absorb chemicals from the lotion into your blood stream. So, anything you would not want to eat, you should not put on your skin. An spf of 30 can only protect you for about 30 minutes of direct sun exposure, so you should still seek shade on sunny days.
