Some of the chemicals that are found in some
sunscreens are suspected to be dangerous to
humans. Since these chemicals are selected
because they absorb UV light very well, that also
makes them prone to degradation under UV light.
The products of their degradation can be extremely
harmful and even cause cancer themselves. However,
many of these chemicals are being phased out of
use because of these properties.
