Safer Sunscreens

Sunscreen will help to protect your skin from skin cancer, but make sure to use a sunscreen that has safe ingredients. Fortunately, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) does yearly research to give us the information we need to make good choices.

EWG is also requesting that the FDA have "truth in labelling" guidelines for over-the-counter sunscreens, and that they are more stringently regulated, to ensure product safety.
