What is the best sunscreen?

Many of my patients ask me what is the best sunscreen. I always tell them that the best sunscreen is waterproof, rubproof, protects from both ultraviolet A and B (UVA and UVB), and has a sunprotection factor (SPF) greater or equal to 30. I never included cost in my list for "best sunscreen" until a patient mentioned a study done by Consumer Reports - published July 2007. You can find the article by searching for "sunscreen" at www.consumerreports.com.
