A new report by Consumer Reports is warning that not all sunscreens contain the SPF protection promised on the label.
Researchers from Consumer Reports tested 20 brands of sunscreen and only two provided the amount of protection listed on the bottle. That's because although the FDA requires manufacturers to test their own products, the agency does not verify the results.
The company is recommending seven sunscreens from Coppertone and Bullfrog to store brands from Walmart and Target.
While not all of them met the SPF claimed on the label, they provided very good to excellent protection from both UVA and UVB rays.
