Why you won't find sunscreen lower than SPF 15 at CVS

Posted: Updated:

CVS is saying goodbye to sunscreens with a sun protection factor under 15.

The drugstore chain has announced it'll only carry sunscreen products with an SPF of 15 or higher.

To replace the sunscreens being taken off the shelves, the store is offering more dermatologist-approved options along with natural and organic choices that meet or exceed FDA standards.

SPF 15 is the FDA's minimum recommendation against cancer and sunburn.

The American Academy of Dermatologists recommends an SPF of at least 30.
