Best Sunscreens


Consumers Report Health came out with their “recommended” or “Best Buy” report for sunscreens?  With summer starting this month, Consumers Report came out with this year’s recommendation for the highest rate sunscreens.  The following 9 sunscreens got excellent marks for protection from UVA and UVB rays, even after being immersed in water.  This is early information, since this report will not be published until the July 2011 Consumer Report.

These three sunscreens received the Best Buy rating:

  • Up & Up Sports SPF 30
  • No-Ad with Aloe and Vitamin E SPF 45
  • Equate Baby SPF 50

Six others were recommended:

  • Banana Boat Sport Performance SPF 30
  • Coppertone Sport Ultra Sweatproof SPF 30
  • CVS Fast Cover Sport SPF 30
  • Walgreens Sport SPF 50
  • Ocean Potion Kids Instant Dry Mist SPF 50
  • Banana Boat Sport Performance SPF 100

These sunscreens received a thumbs down rating from the Environmental Working Group (EWG):

  • Hawaiian Tropic Baby Stick Sunscreen SPF 50
  • Baby Blanket SunBlankie Towelette SPF 45+
  • Coppertone Water Babies Sunscreen Lotion SPF 70+
  • Rite Aid Kids Sunscreen Spray Lotion
  • Elizabeth Arden-Eight Hour Cream Sun Defense for Face SPF 50
