I was wondering if anyone knows if alcohol in sunscreen, or fragrance in sunscreen can cause hyperpigmentation, skin darkness, or melasma?

My favorite Tinsorb sunscreen actually has a lot of fragrance in it. Any the La Roche Posay Mexoryl sunscreen I like contains alcohol.

alcohol generally does not cause hyperpigmentation. Fragrances are some many that it is have to say in general.
