Specifically, 83% of the 785 sunscreen products studied offer inadequate protection from the sun or contain ingredients with significant safety concerns. To see a list of best and worst sunscreens, including information on which sunscreens are best for children, check out the report at the EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database.
