You may be very surprised by the results. I certainly was. By happenstance, I had bought some new sunscreen at the grocery store and they have a good low rating of 3 and found from this website that if I bought the dark blue container, I could lower it to 2. Since my last child is a little English boy and lily white, it is very important that I keep him covered. I found the dark blue type at a local Whole Foods.
Just thought I'd share.
