Caution

Find better scoring products

Based on EWG's modeling, the UV protection is significantly lower than the SPF value would indicate.

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

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.
