Have a look at the cosmetics database website. It lists just about every imaginable ingredient and a lot of products. If you find a product listed as safe there, you can be sure that it's safe. Make sure to read and interpret the ingedients properly, for even products containing ingredients that are marked "not safe", can be perfectly safe. It depends on how far up on the declaration label that specific ingredient is: the higher on the declaration label, the more of it is in that product. http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/browse.ph...skin+care+(sun)
