The first sunscreens were developed to prevent severe sunburn in military personnel who spend long hours under strong and direct sunlight. There are ton of researches lately on the harm caused by sunscreen chemicals. These chemicals actually promote skin cancer. This product is causing the very condition from which it claims to protect people. The skin is not the only organ that is harmed by sunscreen chemicals.
