Sunscreens prevent sunburns, but beyond that simple fact surprisingly little is known about the safety and efficacy of these ubiquitous creams and sprays.

OMG, David...  :o It makes sense, though. If you don't wait for an aerosol spray to dry fully, it's not surprising it would be flammable. The propellants usually are flammable. My DH loves aerosol sunscreen.

As for safety and efficacy, keep in mind, your skin may be a barrier that keeps you from dissolving, but it absorbs what you put on it, too. Sunscreens are chemicals.  :-(

Exactly why the guide is important and the spray on ones are the worst.

True, very true.
I've been doing alot of reading lately on chemicals that are in products..and throwing out of products, too.
Especially those that contain salycilates and how they can work against those who have fibro.
