Is Your Sunscreen Safe?

The Environmental Working Group just announced their review of 1572 suncreen products (including lip balms).

Not to sound alarming, but they found that 3 out of 5 brand-name sunscreens either don't protect skin from sun damage or contain suspect chemicals--or BOTH!

They identified fewer than 100 products that offer very good sun protection with ingredients that present minimal health risks to users.
