When it comes to sunscreen, there are more options than ever.  Labels can be confusing but three things to consider when buying are brand, price, and ingredients.

There's a big movement toward natural or organic sunscreens with a lot of people worried about chemicals found in the traditional types.  The question, though, is whether the natural products work as well. 

Dr. Jeffery Dover, president of the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery says they do.

Natural or organic sunscreens can be more expensive but if you do some comparison shopping, you can save a good bit.

Here are a couple of links that can help you compare products, ingredients and prices.
