asked the Secretary of State for Social Services, whether any sun-tan creams that contain 5 methoxypsoralen are sold in the United Kingdom in a form that is undistilled.

I have been asked to reply.As suppliers of cosmetic products are not generally required to specify the contents of their goods this information is not available. However, I understand that at least one sun-tan product may contain oil of bergamot in an undistilled form and so 5-methoxypsoralen may be present in that product.
