Sunology® All-Natural Sun Protection Named Among "Top Beach and Sport Sunscreens" in EWG's 6th Annual Skin Deep® Sunscreen Guide
Chicago, IL – May 17, 2012 – Sunology® Natural Sun Protection, a new sunscreen line containing only FDA-approved active ingredients, derived from natural sources, has just been named a “Top Beach & Sport Sunscreen” in the Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) 6th Annual Skin Deep® Sunscreen Guide which was released May 15, 2012.
The EWG’s Annual Skin Deep® Sunscreen Guide rates 257 brands and more than 1,800 products for sun protection, and includes sunscreens, lip balms, moisturizers and makeup with SPF. The ratings are calculated to indicate the relative level of health concern posed by exposure to the ingredients in each of the products submitted to the database – not the product itself – as compared to other product formulations.
Of the 800 beach and sport sunscreen products listed in the database, Sunology® products ranked within the top 8%.
The EWG guide ranks each sunscreen based on the following criteria:
- UVB Protection (SPF): Rates the sunscreen’s sunburn protection as indicated by the labeled SPF.
- UVA Protection: Rates the sunscreen’s effectiveness in protecting against UVA rays, which hasten skin aging and cause pre-cancerous skin damages.
- UVA/UVB Balance: Sunscreens ideally block a similar amount of UVA and UVB rays. Otherwise, they allow skin damage while preventing sunburn.
- Sunscreen Stability: Rates the degree to which the sunscreen breaks down on sun-exposed skin.
- Health Concern: This ranking reflects the combined hazard of all product ingredients. Actual health risks from product use, if any, will depend on amounts of the ingredients that
absorb into the body and individual vulnerability to health problems.
“It’s an honor to be recognized as one of the Top Beach & Sport Sunscreens on the market by such a reputable, influential organization as the EWG,” said Richard Doermer, Founder of McNabb Nutraceuticals, LLC. and the Sunology® sunscreen product line. “This kind of positive response to the formulation of our products really speaks volumes about the natural quality of our sunscreens; something we hope will resonate and raise awareness with consumers. Sunology®'s UV MicroReflexion™ is an effective and positive alternative to chemical-based sunscreens. Sunology® does not use chemicals as active ingredients to reflect the sun's harmful rays. So, no chemicals can absorb into the dermis and potentially create free radical formation. Because Sunology® is concentrated and has no water, it offers maximum 50 SPF with natural vitamins and antioxidants in its formulation.”
