Which?: 'Vital' customers can trust their sunscreen

Sunscreen manufacturers need to do more to make sure their product provides the level of protection it claims, as skin cancer rates rise, a consumer watchdog has said.

Which? executive director Richard Lloyd explained:

With thousands of cases of skin cancer diagnosed every year, it's vital you can trust a sun cream to provide the protection it claims.

We've found three products that failed the strict British Standard tests and we want to see manufacturers doing much more to make sure their sun creams live up to the claims on the packaging.
