No - in fact, we never have, and we were the very first sunscreen brand not to use it in our chemical formulas! Here's the deal with it: oxybenzone is used in many sunscreens as a UVB and UVA filter. The problem is, it can be absorbed through the skin and has been linked to hormone disruption. And it’s such a common trigger for allergic reactions that it has been named the Allergen of the Year by the American Academy of Dermatology. So just to reiterate - all of Supergoop!’s products are (and always have been) oxybenzone-free and instead use other safe ingredients that provide broad spectrum protection.
