Fall of summer calls for the use of sunscreen lotions. Australia is one such country where the use of sunscreen is at maximum as compared to other countries. The fear of contamination of sunscreen is always in the mind of Australian.
Recently, about ten sunscreen brands have been accused of using nano-material in the preparation of sunscreen. Nanoparticles in the sunscreen can prove harmful for the skin. Many sunscreen manufacturers have used false marketing tricks to attract the attention of the consumers.
Not all consumers look at the ingredients or content of the sunscreen labeled on the bottle of the sunscreens. Many sunscreen manufacturers claim that their product is free of nanoparticles. However, during an inspection about ten sunscreen products were found of having nanoparticles.
Dr. Gregory Crocetti from Friends of the Earth said, "However we've recently acquired detailed product information about this ingredient, zinc oxide neutral, which shows that this ingredient is based on agglomerates, or clumps, of nano-particles".
There is a need to make sure that the manufacturers are providing accurate labeling of the products. Any misleading information can put the health of the consumer at risk. It is hoped that the authorities would take stern action those who have been providing misleading information to the consumers.
