Speick Sun Sun Lotion with SPF 30 scores a ‘good’ rating from ÖKO-TEST
ÖKO-TEST features an extensive test of chemical-organic and mineral sunscreen filters in the June issue
ÖKO-TEST published the latest June 2021 issue of the magazine to coincide with Sunscreen Day on 27 May 2021. A total of 22 sunscreen products with chemical-organic and mineral sunscreen filters were tested for this edition. Only four products rate as ‘very good’. Seven of the eight natural cosmetic sun creams tested score a ‘good’, all receive a ‘very good’ rating for the ingredients.
Mineral sunscreen filter with very good ingredients throughout
We all know the dangers of too much exposure to the sun and the importance of applying sunscreen to protect the skin from sunburn. But the latest ÖKO-TEST shows that we still need to be careful when choosing sunscreen. Some creams contain substances that can be harmful to the skin. The good news is that all the natural cosmetic sun creams tested were found to contain nothing but ingredients that are very good. This means there is no risk of harmful ingredients such as octocrylene, which is classified as a carcinogenic, problematic PEG compounds or organohalogen compounds, which were found in some of the sunscreen products with chemical-organic filters.
