    La Rosée is also excellent and is SPF 50. They have the sun cream for both babies and adults.

    Most of the sunscreens you recommended aren’t available in shops in the UK, at least none that I have seen.

    You should have included Eau Solaire Sun from SVR which rates 100/100 and it’s also great for kids! Thanks you Yuka for making me find the best suncream ever! 😉

    I just scanned my SVR spray at 83. You made me panic that you’d found something bad in it. Keep up the good work.

    are all of these sunscreens animal friendly? In other words I’m assuming none of them are made by companies that test on animals?

    I’m very surprised that Tropic Sun Care range is not featured in the top 10 because it should be. It’s safe to use on all the family, certified by Protect Land & Sea and contains no toxic chemicals. Made fresh in the UK.

    I’m really surprised Tropic Skincare isn’t there, it’s the only brand that protects our skin well (including previous skin cancer that needs the most comprehensive protection) and we can use with eczema and dermatitis.

      Me too – Tropic’s ‘Sun Day’ scores 100/100!

      I’m surprised Tropic Sunscreen isn’t listed either, as cruelty free, not harmful to the environment and natural.

    Thanks for compiling this list, and even thought environmentally friendly, it is not cruelty free. Half of the brands on this list allow its products to be tested on animals.

    I would urge people not to buy products from:
    Caudalie
    Eucerin
    Avene
    Nivea (same owners as Eucerin)
    La Roche Posay (L’Oreal)

    I am purchasing kids sunscreen from now on! It makes you wonder why they can’t just make the ‘adults’ sunscreen in the same way

    That list is very helpful,
    I spent 20 mins in boots the other day trying to find a suitable sunscreen, all failing on my yuka app.
    Finally found Avène.
