EWG's Sunscreen Hall of Shame


Memorial Day weekend is here, and that means summer is officially underway.

It also means it’s time to think about the best ways to protect yourself and your family from the dangerous effects of sun exposure as you plan your summer adventures.

This year, EWG and its Healthy Child Healthy World program have teamed up to bring you two must-have sun safety tip sheets that will help keep you and your family safe all summer long:

Some of the products that fall seriously short in this year’s Hall of Shame include big brands such as Neutrogena, Banana Boat, Coppertone and others that continuously get away with using egregious marketing claims and hyping their products at the expense of consumer health.

We know it can be overwhelming to sift through the store shelves full of products and figure out the best ways to protect yourself and your family from the sun – that’s why EWG and Healthy Child Healthy World did the work for you. So don’t go in the sun without us.

Here’s to a fun – and safe – summer,

– EWG Hall of Shame

    So true, one recommended by my dermatologist is Solbar Zinc with transparent zinc oxide. It’s important to have sun block without a mixture of damaging chemicals as well as various scents.
