I recently checked out a web site that lists the different sunscreens on the market and lets you know which ones contain hazardous chemicals and which ones aren't effective, as well as the best ones to buy. I had no idea that the FDA doesn't regulate sunscreens. And I was shocked to find out that the Coppertone for babies 50 SPF sunscreen that I always buy at Target (in the pink bottle) contains hazardous chemicals. Yikes!! The site also rates lip balms and moisturizers.
