Find a safer summer sunscreen

June 1, 2011

The Environmental Working Group recently released their 2011 Guide to the Best Beach and Sport Sunscreens. It’s a great, easy to use online resource for all things “sunscreen” including some great, easy to understand Sunscreen Tips. We like that you can search multiple ways based on personal preference:

  • Top Sunscreens
  • Non-Mineral Options
  • All Sunscreens

In addition to finding that sunscreen you will feel good about slathering on this summer, they also have exposed some myths and truths about sunscreen, including issues with sunscreens with high SPF, nanomaterials and hormone disruptors, and the FDAs failure (over the last 33 years!) to regulate sunscreen manufacturers.

EWG is probably most famous for their online Skin Deep Cosmetics Database where consumers can search more than 65,000 products and see how they rate on a hazard score of 1-10, 1 being the lowest, 10 being the highest possible hazard.

Happy searching!
