According to CNN, nearly two-thirds of all sunscreens evaluated by the Environmental Working Group wouldn't pass safety tests proposed by the US Food and Drug Administration. The analysis was released as part of the EWG's 2019 Guide to Sunscreens, which is a yearly report on sunscreen safety that the nonprofit began in 2006. The group said it analyzed the ingredients and performance of more than 1,300 products with sun protection factor, or SPF. 750 of those products are marketed as beach and sport sunscreens. This is only a fraction of the sun protection protects on the market in the U.S., which the FDA estimates to number over 12,000. More than 60% of the products evaluated don't provide adequate sun protection or they contain potentially harmful chemicals.
