Posted: Updated:

Just in time for the tanning season.  A list of the best and worst sunscreens has been released.

The 2012 sunscreen guide by the Environmental Working Group says you need to look for sunscreens labeled broad spectrum.  These products guard against UVA and UVB rays.

Look for a sun protection factor or SPF of at least 15.

Among the top sunscreens in the SPF 30 category, experts recommend Banana Boat Sport Performance, Coppertone Sport Ultra and CVS Fast Cover Sport.

In the SPF 40-50, top performers include No-Ad and Equate Baby.
