Clearer labeling may guide sunscreen purchasing decisions

September 14, 2017

Consumers had difficulty understanding sunscreen labels with regard to skin protection parameters, according to recent findings.

  • 91% of respondents wore sunscreen to prevent sunburns
  • 87% used it to prevent skin cancer
  • 64% used it to prevent premature skin aging
  • broad-spectrum protection only motivated 39% of purchases
  • price motivated 75% of respondents' purchases

For the best protection against burns, skin cancer, and aging, you should be using a broad spectrum sunscreen that covers both UVA and UVB, with an SPF of at least 30. https://www.healio.com/dermatology/skin-care/news/online/%7B22b7ecb8-ee8d-41de-83dc-10ec5e648717%7D/clearer-labeling-may-guide-sunscreen-purchasing-decisions
