This is only going to increase the number of skin cancer cases!! There has been a rise in skin cancer cases since the introduction of suncreams. The industry is huge and modern marketing has us believe that it's safe to sit in the sun all day as long as we wear a high SPF! This is nonsense. Has anyone ever bothered to read the small print ingredients on a bottle of sun lotion? Most are known cancer causing agents. It is the free radicals that cause cancer. Understand what a tan is, if your going to sit in the sun then do it gradually start a half hour per day without cream and build a gradual tan. If you still prefer to use lotion, then use natural sun lotion. Do your research online and find one that only uses natural ingredients. I think it's disgusting that this poor girl has lost her life because the correct information has not been out there.
