MINNEAPOLIS August 7, 2008 -- All sunscreens are not created equal. That is why Coolibar, the nation's leading sun protective clothing manufacturer, is sharing with consumers the top 10 dermatologist recommended sunscreen brands. This year, topping the list as the most recommended sunscreen by leading dermatologists are Neutrogena, Coppertone,Aveeno, Blue Lizard and SolBar.
For the sixth consecutive year, UPF clothing manufacturer Coolibar has conducted a survey among the nation's leading dermatologists to determine their recommendations for the best sunscreen and sun protective practices. This year's survey, completed by 1,045 dermatologists, reveals the most reliable sunscreens and highlights sun protective clothing as integral to sun safety.
"We want to educate people about the most effective ways to stay protected from the sun," said John Barrow, founder and president of Coolibar. "Sun screens continue to get better and better and we promote the use of them, particularly in combination with wearing sun protective clothing. Used together, kids and adults significantly reduce their risk of getting skin cancer and sustaining life-long damage to their skin."

Coolibar was founded in 2001 to bring Australia's world-leading approaches to sun protection to the American market. The company has extensively redesigned Australian sun protective clothing styles to meet the tastes and needs of fashion- and health-conscious Americans.
