Naphthalene (91-20-3)
Acenaphthylene (208-96-8)
Acenaphthene (83-32-9)
Fluorene (86-73-7)
Phenanthrene (85-01-8)
Anthracene (120-12-7)
Fluoranthene (206-44-0)
Pyrene (129-00-0)
Benzo(a)anthracene (56-55-3)
Chrysene (218-01-9)
Indeno(1,2,3-cd)pyrene (193-39-5)
Benzo(b)fluoranthene (205-99-2)
Benzo(k)fluoranthene (207-08-9)

To find out more about these hydrocarbons you can use on-line public chemical database(s) ( SIN List by Chemsec.org ) and enter either the individual hydrocarbon name or substance CAS number here in brackets.

The above represents just a small number of the total chemicals you are wearing next to and interacting with your sweating skin.
