EWG’s Sunscreen Guide

EWG’s Sunscreen Guide for 2015 – the 9th annual edition – finds persistent problems with the ingredients and marketing of sunscreens for the American market.

When you head outdoors this summer arm yourself with products from EWG’s Best Sunscreens, SPF-rated moisturizers and lip products.

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.
