Wearing a moisturizer with SPF is one of many ways we can protect our face and body from harmful UV rays. But what are the Best Moisturizers with SPF without toxic ingredients? The EWG (Environmental Working Group) recently published the 2017 Guide to Sunscreens – Sunscreen safety ratings that help make you make the right purchase. According to the guide,
The product’s score ranges from 0 to 10 and reflects both the degree of UV protection from the sun’s ultraviolet radiation and the hazards of all ingredients on the label. We base two-thirds of the overall score on a product’s UV protection. One-third of the score reflects the hazard score, based on toxicity concerns of listed ingredients.”
Below are some of the Best Moisturizers with SPF (scoring 1-2 on the EWG list) that you can find at your local drugstore, department or retail store.
Best Moisturizers with SPF
“The EWG Sunscreen Guide rates the hazards and efficacy of sunscreens, daily moisturizers, lip products and SPF-rated makeup. We launched the guide in 2007 because the federal Food and Drug Administration had failed to set modern safety standards for sunscreens. Without EWG’s guide, consumers would have to sift through misleading market claims and complex ingredient lists to determine if their favorite sunscreens would help protect them from sun-related skin damage.
EWG’s research has discovered that some sunscreens have several serious problems. We are pressing the Food and Drug Administration to issue rules that address these deficiencies. In the meantime, EWG’s guide aims to help consumers make good choices, and avoid sun damage and cancer.
EWG’s 2017 Sunscreen Guide rates the hazards and efficacy of more than 880 sunscreens, 480 daily moisturizers and 120 lip products with SPF values. Our assessments are based on ingredients disclosed on product labels.”
