Sunscreen Can Damage Freshwater Ecosystem

Common sunscreen ingredients prove dangerous for freshwater ecosystems. The results show that long-term exposure to ultraviolet (UV) filters -- including avobenzone, oxybenzone, and octocrylene -- is lethal for some organisms living in freshwater environments. One of the largest sources of UV-filter contamination in both marine and freshwater environments is from sunscreen leaching off of the skin while swimming. Source 1f.
