Caution

Sunscreens can break down while still in the bottle. To be safe dispose of products when the mixture clumps or separates.

This product contains chemical active ingredient(s) that the FDA does not have enough health safety data to classify as safe and effective: AVOBENZONE, HOMOSALATE, OCTISALATE

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.
