Hawaii has banned some sunscreen ingredients that have been shown to be toxic to coral reefs despite pressure from several powerful groups.

Yeah yeah but..

According to the Environmental Working Group, there are several suspected dangers associated with Oxybenzone. Despite its sun protective abilities, it has been shown to penetrate the skin and cause photo-sensitivity. As a photocarcinogen, it has demonstrated an increase in the production of harmful free radicals and an ability to attack DNA cells; for this reason, it is believed to be a contributing factor in the recent rise of Melanoma cases with sunscreen users. Some studies have shown it to behave similarly to the hormone estrogen, suggesting that it may cause breast cancer. It has also been linked to contact eczema and allergies.

In addition, there exist many concerns regarding the human body’s percutaneous absorption of Oxybenzone. In one study, individuals applied a sunscreen with 4% Oxybenzone and submitted urine samples 5 days after topical application. All the subjects’ urine secretions were found to contain Oxybenzone, suggesting the body’s ability to store the substance (Source). In 2008, the US Centers for Disease Control & Prevention conducted a similar experiment on a national scale, and found the chemical compound to be present in 96.8% of the human urine samples surveyed (Source). As a result, it is recommended that parents keep their small children from using products containing the ingredient. This is based on the assertion that children under the age of 2 have not fully developed the enzymes that are required to break down derivatives of Oxybenzone.

Though a fair amount of scientific evidence points to the adverse effects of Oxybenzone, additional tests are required before making any definite conclusions. It must be noted that this ingredient still possesses less severe risks than those associated with PABA. Furthermore, many dermatologists insist that, because dermal absorption of Oxybenzone appears to be low and still exists as one of the few substances to effectively protect against UV rays, this ingredient should not be ruled out entirely. Recent research (2016) out of King's College, London has found high levels of oxybenzone in coral reefs. It causes the reefs to be susceptible to bleaching and lose their protetctive algae. Furthermore, oxybenzone is also alleged to be an endochrine disrupter that causes baby coral to encase itself in its own skeleton and die.

The FDA has approved the use of Oxybenzone as a safe and effective OTC sunscreen ingredient, but only in concentrations up to 6%. The EU Cosmetics Directive has also assessed the sunscreen ingredient as safe at up to concentrations of 10%, and requires products that contain more than .5% of the ingredient to be labeled "contains Oxybenzone." Sweden has banned the use of this ingredient.

Professor Aranda said Australia was already moving towards eliminating the chemicals from sunscreens.

Cancer Council products no longer contain oxybenzone, which is related to allergies, and it is phasing out octinoxate.

Laugh all you want. The one thing we can say about Trump is that he isn't following anyone's script. His total ignorance, megalomania and narcissism are a hard combo for anyone to control : )

I didn't vote for him the first time, but after watching what is going on, I might just vote for him if he decides to run again. I do hope the Democrats get control of Congress though.

Even though Trump pulled out of the Paris accord, he didn't stop any of the funding that was pledged. Even though he approved the Keystone expansion, it may never go forward. Even though he pledged to help the coal industry, coal fired power plants are still closing.

And watching him wriggle with the reactions to his Tariff proposals and the new Oil issues over the Iranian deal ...well, no other word for it, FUN!
