Sunscreen for dancing molecules
This study is the first to use heavy water (D2O) - a form of water that contains deuterium (D) instead of hydrogen - in the field of transmission electron microscopy (TEM). This approach significantly delays sample damage, which is one of the major impediments for broader application of liquid-phase TEM to fragile biological samples. (2018-08-01)

Hidden costs of skin cancer caused by workplace sun exposure revealed
Skin cancer cases attributable to work-related sun exposure could be costing millions of dollars, and must be better addressed by policymakers. (2018-04-26)

Sunscreen use could lead to better blood vessel health
A new study suggests that sunscreen protects the skin's blood vessel function from harmful ultraviolet radiation (UVR) exposure by protecting dilation of the blood vessels. Perspiration on the skin may also provide protection to the skin's blood vessels from sun damage. The findings will be presented today at the American Physiological Society's (APS) annual meeting at Experimental Biology 2019 in Orlando, Fla. (2019-04-07)

Potential for sun damage should be carefully balanced with need for vitamin D in children, say scientists

How plants manage excess solar energy
Life on earth largely depends on the conversion of light energy into chemical energy through photosynthesis by plants. However, absorption of excess sunlight can damage the complex machinery responsible for this process. Researchers from UNIGE have discovered how Chlamydomonas reinhardtii activates the protection of its photosynthetic machinery. Their study indicates that the receptors that detect ultraviolet rays induce the activation of a safety valve that allows dissipation of excess energy as heat. (2016-12-05)

Molecular mapping made easy
Every day, every inch of skin on your body comes into contact with thousands of molecules -- from food, cosmetics, sweat, the microbes that call your skin home. Now researchers can create interactive 3-D maps that show where each molecule lingers on your body, thanks to a new method developed by University of California San Diego and European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) researchers. The technique is published Dec. 21 in Nature Protocols. (2017-12-21)

Keep slapping on that sunscreen and ignore toxic claims
It's safe to slap on the sunscreen this summer -- in repeated doses -- despite what you have read about the potential toxicity of sunscreens. (2018-11-21)

Colored sunscreen protects skin from damage caused by visible light
In article, a study performed by a group of Brazilian researchers elucidates action mechanism of visible light on skin and questions typical use of sunscreen. Most common sunscreens affect D vitamin absorption and fail to block visible light -- which, while not as damaging as UV rays, accounts for 45 percent of the solar radiation. The group patented skin-colored sunscreen which can block visible light. (2017-12-05)

Millennials aren't getting the message about sun safety and the dangers of tanning
Many millennials lack knowledge about the importance of sunscreen and continue to tan outdoors in part because of low self-esteem and high rates of narcissism that fuel addictive tanning behavior, a new study from Oregon State University-Cascades has found. (2018-04-24)

ITA to AMA: Taxing tanning sends wrong health message to teens
The editorial in today's issue of the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine calling for a 'teen indoor tanning tax' sends absolutely the wrong message to teenagers and their parents. We could not disagree more, (2003-09-08)

A new analysis system is able to identify pollutants from cosmetics in seawater
A University of Cordoba study, in partnership with the University of the Balearic Islands, uses carbon-coated titanium dioxide nanotubes to analyze samples affected by parabens from lotions and shampoos. (2018-05-29)

Sunscreen and cosmetics compound may harm coral by altering fatty acids
Although sunscreen is critical for preventing sunburns and skin cancer, some of its ingredients are not so beneficial to ocean-dwelling creatures. In particular, sunscreen chemicals shed by swimmers are thought to contribute to coral reef decline. Now, researchers reporting in ACS' journal Analytical Chemistry say that one such chemical, octocrylene (OC), which is also in some cosmetics and hair products, accumulates in coral as fatty acid esters that could be toxic to the marine organism. (2019-01-09)

Many skin cancer patients still too likely to sunburn
A recent study by researchers at Johns Hopkins concludes that a substantial number of people with a history of the most frequent kind of nonmelanoma skin cancers still get sunburned at the same rate as those without previous history, probably because they are not using sun-protective methods the right way or in the right amounts. (2016-07-19)

HKBU study: Sunscreen chemicals harm fish embryos and could pose risk to humans
A HKBU has detected an extensive amount of sunscreen chemicals in seawater that could pose a risk to human health. (2018-10-04)

New method maps chemicals in the skin

Getting ready for the summer sun with 'green' sunscreens
Although it's been a tough winter for many people in the US, summer is coming. And that means backyard barbecues, fun on the beach and, of course, slathering on sunscreen. But one particular environmentally friendly sunscreen ingredient has been difficult to obtain -- that ingredient, shinorine, could only be harvested from nature. Scientists now report in ACS Synthetic Biology the laboratory production of that compound. (2018-01-31)

Pre-emptive treatment helped curtail skin toxicity with panitumumab
With a pre-emptive, prophylactic skin regimen, patients who receive panitumumab for treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer may be able to avoid some of the skin-associated toxicities according to data presented at the 2009 American Society of Clinical Oncology Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium. (2009-01-16)

Does sunscreen compromise vitamin D levels?
Sunscreen can reduce the sun's adverse effects, but there are concerns that it might inhibit the body's production of vitamin D. In a new British Journal of Dermatology study, however, investigators recorded an increase of vitamin D in participants during a week of cloudless weather, with very high UV index, even when sunscreens were used properly and prevented sunburn. (2019-05-09)

#BeatEngland, beat sunburn
UV detection stickers trialled by Queensland University of Technology (QUT) researchers at the November 2017 Ashes Test at the Gabba in Brisbane, Australia, prompted 80% of cricket goers who used the stickers to reapply protective sunscreen. However, some in this group still reported receiving a mild or moderate sunburn at the game, indicating they may not have properly applied and reapplied sunscreen or not used enough to provide full protection. (2019-07-12)

Research finds that sunscreen users receive less than half the sun protection they think
Researchers from King's College London have assessed just how much sun protection people actually receive, based on typical use. It is well known that people don't receive the full ultraviolet radiation blocking benefit of sunscreen, because they are applying it more thinly than manufacturers recommend. (2018-07-24)
