Jason sun care products recognized in EWG’s sunscreen guide
MELVILLE, N.Y. The Hain Celestial Group has announced that its Jason brand of natural personal care products has been recognized in the Fourth Annual Sunscreen Guide by the Environmental Working Group.
The EWG reviewed 500 beach and sport sunscreens and named three Jason products to its top 30 list. The Jason Sunbrellas mineral-based physical sun block SPF 30, chemical-free sun block SPF 30 and Jason Earth’s Best sunblock mineral-based SPF 30 were all recommended with a favorable overall score of 2.
The EWG provides ratings on a total of more than 1,400 SPF products, including sunscreens, lip balms, color cosmetics and moisturizers. Products are rated on overall safety and efficacy in sun protection based on five different factors, including health hazards of the listed ingredients, UVA protection, UVB protection and the balance of the UVA/UVB protection and stability. The EWG’s stability rating is based on the EWG’ own in-house database, compiled from published findings in industry and peer-reviewed stability studies.
