Sunscreen Recommendations

According to he Environmental Working Group, they analyzed 500 various sunscreens and were only able to recommend 39 of them for their 2010 Sunscreen Guide.

Since it's now summer, this is the stuff you'll want to know.

"Our top-rated sunscreens all contain the minerals zinc or titanium," the Environmental Working Group says. "They are the right choice for people who are looking for the best UVA protection without any sunscreen chemical considered to be a potential hormone disruptor."

Of note is that that none of the products on this list are in spray or powder form... and none contain oxybenzone or vitamin A, which may increase skin cancer risk when exposed to sunlight (photocarcinogenic potential).

  • All Terrain AquaSport Performance Sunscreen with SPF 30

Is it true that when you store a suncreen, say for at least a year, it loses its SPF strength? I am going through my cabinet and these products have been manufactured 1.5 years ago. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
