While we should consider carefully any chemicals we apply to our bodies, EWG and their science/research has received some criticism (I've seen a number of articles on this over the years - EWG releases numerous reports on various health issues - but the see e.g. http://www.beautybunch.com/2010/05/26/cancer-from-vitamin-a-in-your-sunscreen/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+paulabegoun+%28Beauty+Bunch%29&utm_content=Google+Reader)

One thing to consider IMO is alternatives. If you can go out in the sun with light cotton longsleeves and a hat, that's probably better than applying chemicals. On the other hand, if you have to go out in the sun, I think that applying chemicals that have been approved by national safety organizations is less of a risk than getting melanoma from sun exposure.

But everyone has to make their own informed decision, and reading and considering reports like EWG's and other safety/research organizations and carefully reading ingredient lists before choosing a sunscreen is a very good thing to do.

Here's a link to the best sunscreens based on research by the Environmental Working Group.
www.ewg.org/2010sunscreen/best-beach-sport
-sunscreens/

I was shocked to find that only 8 percent of 500 beach and sport sunscreens studied were recommended. The rest either failed to do as promised or worse - actually caused more problems than the sun. Scariest to me are the baby sunscreens.

I use SPF 30 for everything but my face. For my face I use SPF 15 from Avon. I heard anything above 30 is not as accurate.

I use COTZ now.
Last summer I developed an allergy to all the other sunscreens made with PABA in them.
COTZ is made from colorless zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. I was so relieved to finally find a sunscreen that I wasn't allergic to!

+1 on the Neutrogena Sport. Great, but not in the eyes.

Neutrogena Ultrasheer, Neutragena Baby or Neutrogena Sport. I bought a bunch of different ones to try at Nordstrom Rack.

One thing I learned is to not put it on my forehead or too close to my eyes or when you sweat it can end up in your eyes. Not fun at all. For the forehead I just use my regular moisturizer that has sunscreen in it.

I use BullFrog SPF 30. I like it because it's sunscreen and bug spray in one.

I use the Neutrogena Sport spray. Easy to apply and haven't been burned in 3 years. I do carry a small cream in my pack if we are planning a long (over 70 mile) ride.

Which sunblock do you use? I was thinking of getting either Neutrogena Sport or Aveeno SPF 70 spray, but I'd like to see what everyone else uses!

Thanks in advance!
