    Consumer NZ is calling on manufacturers to regularly test sunscreen SPF ratings

    Consumer NZ is calling on manufacturers to regularly test sunscreen SPF ratings


    The organisation has found sun blocks from Neutrogena and Hamilton don't meet their advertised safety claims.

    That's on top of five out of 10 sunscreens recently tested not matching claims on the bottle.

    Consumer Chief Executive, Jon Duffy, says it's not good enough that sunscreens are unregulated - particularly in a country with one of the highest rates of skin cancer.
