    The Environmental Working Group, a Washington-based nonprofit, has released an investigation of nearly 1,000 brand-name sunscreens that says four out of five don't adequately protect consumers and may contain harmful chemicals.

    The group says some of the products of the nation's leading brands -- including Coppertone, Neutrogena and Banana Boat -- are the poorest performers. Read about the study

    There are a few companies that make good sunscreens. One of them is UV Naturals. They are not cheap, normally around $30-40 a bottle, but they are good.
