A member asked:

If you put sunscreen on your face that also covers your lips will the sunscreen get ingested when drinking from a cup bc cream on lips? is it bad?

Dr. James Ferguson answered

Specializes in Pediatrics

Most sunscreen products contain chemicals that are considered non-toxic. The minimal amount ingested in the manner you describe would likewise be considered insignificant. Anyone can develop an allergic response to any chemical and or protein material which is a separate issue.
