In brief: Possibly.

These products may not be regulated by the U.
S., so one might not be sure what is in them. They might have chemicals that are carcinogens in them, or they might have chemicals that can contribute to skin cancer. If they are supposed to protect against the sun, they might not do it, and cause cancer that way. It might be wise to use caution, and get a consumer review if possible prior to use.
