Too hot?

Heh.

Fear not, friends, the sun doesn't intend to consume you just yet, so just glow:

Technically, this isn't spontaneous human combustion. That's a term that refers to a person bursting into flame without any apparent source of ignition. We know what's setting them on fire here.

They should have make the packaging different from the non-stick cooking spray.
 
2012-10-19 08:44:02 PM  
UltraMist's label warns users: "Keep away from sources of ignition - no smoking."
But dermatologists say most people don't read such labels.


You gotta read the labels.

I saw this earlier on another site. Of course, most sunscreens etc. contain some alcohol or other flammable vapors. But USUALLY those vapors disperse in plenty of time that the wearer doesn't burst into flame by the time they walk past a candle or campfire or what have you.

I guess the next headline will be TEEN SUFFERS ALCOHOL POISONING AFTER DRINKING SUNSCREEN.

October 19. Outside of CA, FLA and Hawaii good luck finding a bottle on the shelves to send back.

The spray-on lotion is alcohol based and takes a short time to dry.
Products that produce flammable vapor should be kept away from FIRE and most of us learn this at an early age.

Spray-on sunscreen does, in fact, have alcohol in it. If you shave your head, like I do, and apply that shiat to your scalp you will think you have burst into flames.

/the more you know
//the more you wish you had learned it earlier

Is that toasted coconut that I'm smelling? No? Shame, because many sunscreens really have a strong smell of coconut: and it is driving me nuts! (And hungry)

True, but it doesn't change the fact that this headline is rather ... sensationalitically misleading.

Reads like the stuff is made out of a mix of Nitroglycerine, pure sodium metal, hydrozene tetraflouride, Astrolite®, Napalm, white Phosphorus, pure Magnesium, U238, old-style WD-40, chimeny soot, last year's prairie grass, ground essence of Ford Pinto, eye of newt, JP-4, Aquanet Super Unscented, Michael Jackson's hair, Dragons' Breath, Potassium Chlorate, Balrog farts, grain elevator dust, Ifrit tears, and Red Dye #4: c'mon now, *any* oil-based product in a fine aerosol is at least inflammable near a source of ignition!! Add an alcohol solvent and you might as well be spraying yourself with "Insta-immolate". Only a complete moron would try that in real life whilst applying it to themselves. Sometimes getting "Darwined" is a good thing, for everyone and the survival of the whole human species.

For myself, I just don't stand on my head doing the splits at the beach.

You just have to slow down and stroke it a little more gently.

Drying time or not, nobody WANTS to come in contact with a flame. I doubt the wet sunscreeners are getting too eager to rub up against the tiki torches.
