The Environmental Working Group has posted a Sunscreen Hall of Shame based on analysis of ingredients in popular products.
The boxâ€™s directions tell users to â€œapply to eye area.â€ But read the fine print. It carries a warning that advises, â€œkeep out of eyes.â€
Why do sunscreen makers formulate products for use around the eyes that arenâ€™t safe for eyes?
Because they can. There are no regulations to ensure that sunscreens are truly gentle to eyes.
