Choose mineral sunscreens containing Zinc Oxide instead of chemical sunscreens containing endocrine-disrupting chemicals. Chemical sunscreens have no beneficial effect on the skin and are actually linked to higher rates of melanoma. The Sun Protection Factor (SPF) does not measure the protection against UVA; the most damaging form of UV radiation, and is misleading in that doubling SPF does not double the protection. Choose Zinc-oxide sunscreens with an SPF of 15 or higher.
