Misleading SPF Labels

Posted: Updated:

Before you head out in the sunshine, be sure to grab your sunscreen. But pay close attention to which brand will actually protect you.

According to researchers from consumer reports, they tested 20 different brands of sunscreen and only two had the correct amount of promised protection on the bottle.

With so many choices to pick from, it could be shocking to find out which brands actually don't keep your skin safe.

"I think many things are mislabeled, but it's kind of interesting to see that something as black and white as we would think, an SPF number, would maybe not be accurate,” says Minot resident Kevin Burckhard.

The two sunscreens that did pass the SPF test were Bullfrog SPF 50 and Coppertone Sensitive Skin SPF 50.
