According to Which? two of the top branded suncreams have failed protection tests. One of the Boots Soltan range & a Hawaiian Tropic suncream fail to offer the protection advertised.
Boots Soltan Protect and Moisturise Lotion ( SP30) and Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion (SP30) only offer two – thirds of the skin protection stated on the bottle.

Both companies have rejected the claims but Which? are advising consumers against buying these products. Some how I imagine there will be a lot more to say on this subject, watch this space…
