Top end suncreams fail SPF test
Three suncreams, which include some of the most expensive on the market, do not give the protection they claim in tests, a consumer watchdog says.
Which? said the creams - by Piz Buin, Malibu and Hawaiian Tropic - all offered lower factor protection than the SPF 30 written on the bottle. Calypso sun lotion, at £1.20 per 100ml, was cheapest on the market and passed the watchdog's tests. The brands said they stood by their testing techniques. BBC News 16/5/14
