What it is: This lotion consistency chemical sunscreen from Cetaphil is considered one of the best sunscreen lotions in India, making it a perfect starter sunscreen for sensitive skin types with dry skin.

The ingredients are listed on the product page. The sun filters in this sunscreen are Octinoxate, Bemotrizinol and DHHB (Diethylamino Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate). This makes it a completely chemical sunscreen, which shows why sensitive skin types find this sunscreen easy to use. Again, the chemical UV filters are a combination of older filters like Octinoxate and new generation filters like Bimotrizinol.

3. This sunscreen is not recommended for pregnancy and nursing due to the presence of Octinoxate, which may be associated with endocrine disruption properties.
