Which eco sunscreen is best?



For those of you trying hard to be as earth-friendly as possible, the folks over at Grist.org have taken some of the sting out of choosing an eco sunscreen.

Over the last several weeks, Grist staffers scooped up several of the readily available eco-brands—four sunscreens, which protect by absorbing ultraviolet rays, and five sunblocks, which provide a physical barrier on your skin—and tested them on our sun-deprived flesh.

Which brands held up, and which ones crapped out? Read on to find out.
