Best and Worst Sunscreens 2016
THE GOOD NEWS
According to the EWG, mineral-based sunscreen products are on the rise! 34% of those products tested this year were mineral-based. “Sunscreens using zinc oxide and titanium dioxide tend to rate well in our analysis: They are stable in sunlight, offer a good balance between protection from the two types of ultraviolet radiation (UVA and UVB) and don’t often contain potentially harmful additives.”
