2009 Sunscreen Guide by Environmental Working Group

This time Environmental Working Group has got your back covered — literally and with sunscreen. They have just released their 2009 Sunscreen Guide.

After investigating over 1,500 sunscreens, EWG found that three out of five brand-name sunscreens didn't protect skin adequately from damaging UV rays. Many sunscreens also contained hazardous chemicals. Their list is definitive and complete including moisturizers with SPF as well as lip balms designed to block the suns damaging rays. You can sort by ranking to find the most effective and healthiest, or you can sort by brand to see how your favorite SPF ranks.

EWG is not in favor of chemical based sunscreens, like those with oxybenzone, and instead strongly favors sunblocks with titanium oxide and zinc oxide. These sun blocks do not contain chemicals absorbed by the skin and provide superior protection with better water resistant qualities. The only problem is they can leave a white tint on your skin. For everyday sun protection, mix a little base with your whitening sunblock to give the lotion some color and provide superior coverage to the delicate skin on your face. How did your sunscreen rank?
