15 Minute Beauty Fanatic: Quick Sunscreen Update

Not all sunscreens are created equal, as the amazing super-beauty-blogger, Christine points out in this amazing chart she created for her blog, 15 Minute Beauty Fanatic.
And, if you're looking for the perfect sunscreen you must check out her currently running sunscreen round up where she reviews and tries various SPF laden lotions and potions.

As you can see from this chart, her work is very informative and detailed. Don't let the chemical names scare you away! You need to know how well they function as sunscreen agents so you don't waste your dough on a product that isn't doing jack.

You should know that when I created this particular graphic I just took each sunscreen ingredient and spread them out so that each name could be seen. Currently they are not even remotely lined up with the UV range above! Quite a few people have been confused about that.

In order to really see the chart in action check out one of the sunscreen reviews where I move the ingredients in that sunscreen into the correct area of coverage. It does make it very easy to see if there are "holes" in UV coverage!
