When a woman’s body can’t handle it

LONDON — The world’s top cosmetics company says it’s suspending sales of a popular sunscreen product that was criticized as potentially damaging skin and prompted widespread condemnation.

The Sunscreens International brand, based in California, said Thursday it’s halting sales of its popular Toner-A cream, after it was linked to skin cancer and cancer-causing bacteria.

The move follows a global outcry over its use in China, where authorities have banned sales of sunscreens after an outbreak of the coronavirus in late 2015.

The company’s brand, which has been on sale in some U.S. stores since late 2017, is still being sold in China.

The company said it will temporarily suspend sales in the U.K., France, Australia, Germany and South Africa.

The U.N. agency that oversees food safety has said there is a risk of skin cancer linked to the sunscreen.

The news comes as the world grapples with a coronaviral pandemic and its impact on global health.

A report published by the World Health Organization last week said the number of cases of the virus is now estimated to be more than 5 million.

A spokeswoman for Sunscreen said the company had no immediate comment.

The company, which said it sells its product to more than 3,000 brands, has about 4,600 employees worldwide and employs more than 20,000 people.

It has been a leader in the global cosmetics market and has expanded internationally.

Sunscreens sells a line of products made with plant-derived ingredients that are designed to kill harmful bacteria and protect skin from the sun’s damaging rays.

It sells more than 100 types of products in China and the United States, where it has more than 15 million customers.

Sunscreen makers have been facing backlash from consumers and politicians in recent months, including in Germany after it emerged that the company’s Toner brand had been linked to a spike in skin cancers among young women.

In November, a Dutch company, Boraal, said its SkinCare sunscrews, which were sold in a few U.s. stores, had been associated with a rise in skin cancer cases.

Other manufacturers, including China’s Lush Cosmetics, have been criticized for making products containing synthetic ingredients, or synthetics, that can harm human health.

China’s state-owned Xinhua news agency reported on Friday that the government had launched a probe into Sunscents products.
