ORLANDO, Fla., July 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Caribbean Solutions' (http://www.caribbean-sol.com) biodegradable sunscreen, Caribbean Sol SolGuard SPF 25 and Kids Kare 25, has earned high marks from the Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep Cosmetics Safety Database (http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com).
Caribbean Sol SolGuard SPF 25 natural sunscreen rated a 1 -- one of just 44 sun products, out of 952 tested, to rank so low in harm and high in effectiveness.
On Tuesday, the Environmental Working Group said that 4 out of 5 sunscreens (of 952 tested) "offer inadequate protection from the sun, or contain ingredients with significant safety concerns." Offenders included the nation's best-selling sun products.
Caribbean Sol Icy Relief Gel, a cooling after-sun product with organic aloe vera, tea tree oil and eucalyptus oil, rated a 2.
