EWG Sunscreen Buyer's Guide Download

Ahead of the Memorial Day holiday, Environmental Working Group today released its 7th annual Sunscreen Guide rating the safety and efficacy of more than 1,400 sunscreens, lotions, lip products and makeups that advertise sun protection. EWG researchers found that only 25 percent of products on the market in 2013 offer strong and broad UV protection and pose few safety concerns. 'The vast majority of sunscreens available to the consumer arent as good as most people think they are but there are a handful of products that rise above the rest,' said Sonya Lunder, senior research analyst at EWG and lead author of the report. 'The best advice for concerned consumers is to use sun-protective clothing, stay in the shade to reduce intense sun exposure and schedule regular skin examinations by a doctor. And turn to EWGs guide to find the best sunscreens for skin that isnt protected by clothing.' 'Despite an increasing awareness of the suns risks, rates of melanoma the deadliest skin cancer have tripled over the past 35 years, with an annual increase of 1.9 percent per year since 2000,' Lunder said. Part of the reason for the increases may be the decades of deceptive marketing claims by sunscreen manufacturers, EWG researchers said. EWG believes that the federal Food and Drug Administration should press companies to stop selling high-SPF sunscreens (above 50+), which account for 1 in 7 products on the market. As a result of misleading and confusing marketing claims, consumers frequently misuse sunscreens and spend more time in the sun than they should, putting themselves at greater risk. Moreover, until recently, sunscreens provided little protection from the suns ultraviolet A rays. Sunburns are caused mostly by relatively short but intense ultraviolet B rays. Longer UVA rays, which penetrate the body more deeply, inflict more insidious damage and may contribute to or cause cancer. The FDAs current definition of 'broad-spectrum' still results in inadequate UVA protection. In late 2011, the FDA issued long-awaited sunscreen labeling standards promised since 1978. Under the new rules, companies are now prohibited from making misleading advertising claims such as 'sunblock,' 'waterproof' and 'sweat-proof.' The FDA also set the first-ever standards for sunscreens that claim to provide broad-spectrum protection. However, the agency now allows most sunscreens on the American market to make dubious claims that they help lower the risk of skin cancer and sun-related skin aging. The FDA has yet to issue final rules on excessively high SPF claims, potentially harmful chemical ingredients and sprays that may be dangerous when inhaled. EWGs analysis of 750 beach and sport sunscreens found that the new FDA rules have not led to dramatically better sunscreens than those offered in previous years. While nearly every sunscreen on the market meets the new FDA rule for broad-spectrum protection, that standard is so weak that half of the sunscreens on the American market would not be sold Europe, where the safety and efficacy protocols are more stringent. European sunscreen makers voluntarily comply with European Union recommendations that a products UVA protection and SPF be coordinated so that the UVA protection is at least one-third as strong as the SPF. EWGs guide helps consumers find products that get high ratings for providing broad-spectrum, long-lasting protection and that are made with ingredients that pose fewer health concerns.
