Environmental Group: Only 1 in 5 Sunscreens OK
We are getting to that time of the season when we will have our two weeks of summer. The day cares are asking for sunscreen to let the children out in the sun. What to buy? The latest report is not good. Only 1 in 5 sunscreens pass the real test.
Just in time for the beginning of summer, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) has issued its 5th annual guide to sunscreen products.
Just one in five of more than 600 beach and sport sunscreens made the cut. Another 11 products earned a spot in the group's Hall of Shame.
The report also evaluates lip balms, moisturizers, and makeup products that claim sun protection.
