What products out there even contain PABA in the first place??
I don't think its pore-clogging??? I think I have heard that it absorbs UVB rays. So maybe its just bad if you wear it out in the sun???

Hope that helps
Is is only important for you to use a PABA free sunscreen if you are allergic to PABA. If you are not allergic to PABA, then it makes no difference whether you use a PABA free sunscreen or not. If you are allergic to PABA and you use a sunscreen containing this ingredient, you will break out with an itchy rash which can be treated.

SweetJade, I wouldn't take ANYWHERE NEAR that much on a regular basis! Over many years I've come to trust the opinion of Sheldon Saul Hendler, MD, PhD, who has written a number of popular books on health and nutrition. He says this about PABA: "I do not recommend PABA except as a topical sunscreen. Those who do take it orally should be aware that it causes nausea and diarrhea in some individuals. In addition, PABA is stored in the tissues and in continued high dosage may prove toxic to the liver. Some enthusiasts have recommended daily doses of a gram or higher; these doses could produce such adverse effects as anorexia, nausea, fever and skin rash. If for some reason you feel compelled to take PABA internally, do not take more than 30 milligrams daily in supplemental form."
