Chemical in sunscreen could be bad for your health

A new report warns there could be dangerous ingredients in your sunscreen.

The Environmental Working Group only considers a quarter of the 800 sunscreens on the market to be safe. To make the safe list the sunscreen had to be free of oxy-benzone, a chemical that blocks UV rays. The group's research shows the chemical can be absorbed through the skin.

The FDA has approved oxy-benzone for use in sunscreen for children 6 months or older.
