Sunscreen Could Set Skin On Fire

A product designed to keep your skin from burning might actually have the opposite effect. The makers of continuous spray Banana Boat sun care recalled products Friday due to reports that the spray could ignite on the skin. There have been four incidences when Banana Boat sunscreen has ignited when exposed to a flame before drying. The manufacturer says the spray valve could be the issue, since it dispenses more product and takes longer to dry. The likelihood of actually lighting on fire is extremely rare, according to the Burn Prevention Network, and aerosol sprays are known to be flammable.
