Petition Suggests Environmental Laws Compel FDA To Ban Oxybenzone, Octinoxate In Sunscreens

Executive Summary

Center for Biological Diversity asks FDA to ban using oxybenzone and octinoxate in sunscreens, citing their potential contribution to coral bleaching and coral death as well as potential impact on human health. If the agency does not opt to ban the ingredients, the center asks it to conduct a thorough environmental impact assessment, a measure it suggests is warranted under the National Environmental Policy Act.
