NEUTROGENA and AVEENO aerosol sunscreen Recall

July 16, 2021
At Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc., the health and safety of the people who use our products is our top priority. We are contacting you today to inform you that we are voluntarily recalling all lots of five NEUTROGENA and AVEENO aerosol sunscreen product lines at the consumer level. This voluntary recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Internal testing identified low levels of benzene in some samples of these aerosol sunscreen products. As such, we are working to remove these products from the market and telling consumers to stop using them. We ask that you please stop selling these products at this time.


The only sunscreen products impacted are aerosol products, specifically: NEUTROGENA
Beach Defense aerosol sunscreen, NEUTROGENA® Cool Dry Sport aerosol sunscreen,
NEUTROGENA Invisible Daily Defense aerosol sunscreen, NEUTROGENA Ultra Sheer
aerosol sunscreen, and AVEENO Protect + Refresh aerosol sunscreen.
NEUTROGENA® Wet Skin aerosol sunscreen is not impacted by this voluntary action. The rest
of the NEUTROGENA and AVEENO sun care portfolio – including lotions, sticks and face mist
sunscreens and sunless tanning products – is also not impacted and continues to be available to consumers.

When the industry was alerted to this matter, we immediately began a comprehensive end-to-end investigation of our manufacturing process and raw materials, including internal testing
and a thorough data review.
Benzene is classified as a human carcinogen, a substance that could potentially cause cancer
depending on the level and extent of exposure. Benzene is ubiquitous in the environment.
Humans around the world have daily exposures indoors and outdoors from multiple sources.
Benzene can be absorbed, to varying degrees, by inhalation, through the skin, and orally.
Based on exposure modeling and the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) framework,
daily exposure to benzene in these aerosol sunscreen products at the levels detected in our
testing would not be expected to cause adverse health consequences. Out of an abundance of
caution, we are recalling all lots of these specific aerosol sunscreen products.
While the use of these products would not be expected to cause adverse health consequences,
we are asking consumers to stop using these products and appropriately discard them. To
discard products, consumers should follow their local disposal procedures. Consumers can
contact their local waste management services for more information. We believe this is the right decision to ensure consumers are confident in using sunscreen
products which are critical to public health.
