Is Sunscreen Actually Toxic? Here's What Science Says

As for recommendations, most people should use a sunscreen whose scent they like, whose bottle is attractive and whose contents are easily rubbed in and disappear to touch. SPF 30 with UVA and UVB protection is enough for most people. For people with sensitive skin, there are special formulations that try to be less irritating. For people with sun-sensitive skin conditions, higher SPFs are appropriate.
