(May 24, 2017) – Beyond Coastal, manufacturer of premium sun care products, announced today its received top ratings, for the sixth consecutive year, in the recently published 2017 Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) annual sunscreen guide.

“In a very saturated market, where safety should always be top of mind when selecting which sun care protection is best for your skin and the environment, Beyond Coastal is proud to be recognized by the EWG as one of the safest options on the shelves and in your homes,” said Beyond Coastal Director of Marketing, Colleen Gilligan. “The yearly affirmation by the distinguished EWG Annual sunscreen guide reinforces our commitment to use only the best quality and healthiest ingredients in our formulas to make the best and the safest sun care protection for our customers and their families.”
EWG is an independent non-profit consumer resource group that provides consumers with ratings on protection levels and ingredient safety. Consumers are faced with thousands of sun care options on the market and having a third-party verify the overall safety of the products for your body and the environment is extremely important.
The annual EWG sunscreen guide tests over 1,000 products and rates them on a scale of 1-10, 1-2 being “Low Hazard”, 3-6 being “Moderate Hazard” and “7-10” being “High Hazard.” All nine of Beyond Coastal’s sunscreen and lip balm products received top rankings, indicating a low hazard and thus being recognized among the safest brands the market.
All sunscreen formulas, regardless of brand, are comprised of about 80% inactive ingredients. Beyond Coastal’s water-resistant and broad spectrum UVA/UVB protecting formulas are distinguished by the premium anti-oxidant rich, inactive ingredients used such as grape seed extract, jojoba oil, and coconut oil, which work to nourish, repair and hydrate the skin.
