Read what's on your label. Other formulations may exist on the market. [See the ingredients used for this report.]
Label directions: Apply evenly to cleansed face and neck daily, reapplying as needed. To maintain formula efficacy, turn pump to closed position (left) after every use. Can be used under make-up.
Label warnings: Important: You may experience mild redness, a warm, tingling sensation or flaking (skin exfoliation). These are normal, temporary indications that the formula is working. If effects persist or cause discomfort, limit use to once every other day until your skin adjusts, then revert back to daily use. For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, flush thoroughly with water. Discontinue use if irritation or rash appear. Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center immediately. Sun Alert: UV exposure from the sun increases the risk of skin cancer, premature skin aging, and other skin damage. It is important to decrease UV exposure by limiting time in the sun, wearing protective clothing, and using a sunscreen.

About the ratings

EWG provides information on sunscreen products from the published scientific literature, to supplement incomplete data available from companies and the government. The ratings indicate both efficacy and the relative level of concern posed by exposure to the ingredients in this product - not the product itself - compared to other sunscreens. The ratings reflect potential health hazards but do not account for the level of exposure or individual susceptibility, factors which determine actual health risks, if any.
