I think once you have compromised the surface of that black tube through solvent contamination, not using sunscreen for a day and still seeing black on your fingers does not mean that it is not sunscreen...

You have already done the damage.

I had this happen before with the black plastic on a cabrinha bar in the past too. I ended up in water full of goose shit and whatever was in that goose shit had a major affect on the plastic as the black stuff started coming off on my fingers almost instantly.

This could be a situation of ICC (Inferior Chinese Crap)
