The Environmental Working Group (EWG) names Block Island Organics sunscreen a 2015 Top Beach & Sport Sunscreen

We did it again!  The Environmental Working Group (EWG) named our natural mineral sunscreen a Best Beach & Sport Sunscreen for the second year in a row.  The EWG is a non-profit advocacy group and this year they evaluated over 1,700 sunscreens / sunblocks, SPF-rated moisturizers, lip balms and their ingredients for safety and effectiveness.  We are proud to be one of the few to make their Best Beach & Sport Sunscreen list.

How tough is it to make it?  Just check these stats from the EWG's press release:

"A whopping 80 percent of U.S. sun protection products analyzed by EWG contain harmful ingredients or offer inadequate protection against dangerous ultraviolet radiation -- or both..."

"More than 30 products landed in EWG’s 2015 Sunscreen Hall of Shame because of potentially toxic ingredients, inhalation risks from sprays and excessive SPF claims."

We are honored to once again be on their list and to bring you top quality, safe and effective non-toxic mineral suncare.  Here's to many more years to come of being one of the best Laughing.
