Mother Claims a Sunscreen Gave Her Daughter Second-Degree Burns

But it turns out some ingredients in hundreds of common sunscreens don't work as well as advertised, according to a new report released by the Environmental Working Group (EWG).

"It appears that Consumer Reports' testing methods are not consistent with those used by FDA, and therefore are not the same testing as required by the product manufacturers to assign the SPF designation".

The EWG analysed nearly 1,500 different products and scored them depending on their effectiveness.

Still have last year's bottle of sunscreen?

Additionally, the melanoma death rate for white males, the group at highest risk, doubled from 2.6 deaths per 100,000 people in 1975 to 4.4 deaths in 2014.

Do Check The Ingredients- You may not be able to pronounce them, but you should be able to recognize these ingredients on your sunscreen.

Government agencies determined that companies producing sunscreens do not provide their clients with the expected results.

Summer is all about fun in the sun! Throughout the day she said she noticed her daughter's face getting more and more red and when she woke the next day her cheeks had blistered. UVB is associated with skin cancer and sunburn while UVA is known to have more effects on skin wrinkling, leathering and sagging. Sunscreen with only UVB protection must carry a warning label saying it doesn't protect from skin aging and skin cancer. Finding a sunscreen labeled with the ingredient avobenzone instead of zinc oxide provides the best bet for a sunscreen with at least SPF 30. Around three-quarters of products on the market fail to actually protect skin from the sun; some actually exacerbate the skin's sensitivity to damaging rays. "We have spoken with the consumer and asked for the product so that our quality assurance team can look into this further".

The SPF number filters out a specific percentage of UVB rays. As part of the project, CVS is no longer carrying sunscreen with an SPF lower than 15 and added more 30 new SPF/broad spectrum products that meet or exceed the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) standards.

As if it were not enough, a higher SPF is obtained thanks to a higher concentration of sun-filtering chemicals. Repeated sun damage causes skin to start looking dry, wrinkled, discolored and leathery. The numbers are more like a strong marketing ploy: People flock to high-SPF products because they think they can apply them once and forget about them, Lunder says. She recommends sticking to products between SPF 30 and 50.
