A compound, OMC, which is often found in regular sun cream and acts as protection against Ultra Violet light, can damage fertility according to a Danish study.

Experiments were carried out with pregnant rats exposed to high OMC-doses and the results showed that the rat pups had smaller genitals and abnormal reproductive function and that the impact continued into adulthood. The rats also produced low sperm.

Marta Axelstad Petersen, researcher at the Danish Technical University says it's wise to use sun cream without OMC if you one is pregnant, but she still recommends that people use sun cream in the sun.
