Product summary

We assess that "Equate - Beauty Ultra-Light Continuous Spray Sunscreen Mist, Broad Spectrum, SPF 70" can provide reliable sun protection based on the ingredient list. It can protect from both UVA and UVB rays. This is great news because not all sunscreens with SPF ratings give UVA protection. (UVA rays do not cause sunburn, but still damage our skin and lead to early aging).

This product prevents early signs of aging by protecting against sun damage (all broad spectrum sunscreens do that).

Sunscreen filters

This sunscreen uses so-called "chemical", or organic UV filters (organic simply means that their molecules contain atoms of carbon). These filters typically give good sun protection and rarely leave a white cast, but they can be irritating for sensitive skin. The UV filters in this sunscreen are: oxybenzone 6.00% (declared), avobenzone 3.00% (declared), butyloctyl salicylate 23.00% - 35.00%, octisalate 15.00% (declared), homosalate 3.00% (declared), octocrylene 5.00% (declared) and polysilicone-15 4.10% - 6.10%.
