SPF Claims: Do These Sunscreens Live Up To Their Label?


If you have purchased Banana Boat Kids Tear-Free, Sting-Free Lotion (SPF 50) or CVS brand Kids Sun Lotion (SPF 50), our law firm is currently investigating a potential class action lawsuit in Kentucky related to the mislabeling of their SPF power. According to a new study by Consumer Reports, 43% of sunscreens fail to live up to their SPF claim. The Banana Boat Kids Tear-Free and the CVS Kids Sun Lotion were two of the sunscreens that had the worst performance. Both sunscreens were labeled as SPF 50 but tested at an SPF level of approximately 8. Consumer Reports also found that the sunscreens that claimed “natural” ingredients were the least effective in preventing UVB ray damage. The American Academy of Dermatology has recommended using a sunscreen that is at least 30 SPF to prevent sunburn and skin cancer risks.

I am currently investigating a potential lawsuit against the manufacturers and/or sellers of these faulty sunscreens because their advertising claims of sun protection appear to be false. People who have used Banana Boat Kids Tear-Free, Sting-Free Lotion or CVS Kids Sun Lotion may deserve their money back for purchasing an ineffective product. If you have used these products you may be eligible to join a Kentucky class action lawsuit involving faulty sunscreens. Contact me here today!
