Sunscreens sans BP-3 may be a good idea

Q. I was alarmed to read in your article on sunscreens that benzophenone-3 (BP-3) could be a hormone disruptor. I looked at my sunscreens and found that they did indeed have the active ingredient benzophenone-3. What sunscreen does not have BP-3? My 12-year-old plays tournament tennis, so we as a family spend a lot of time in the sun.
