ATLANTA - As we approach the official start of the summer season when trips to the beach become more frequent, a new study has been released naming the worst sunscreens for kids.

According to the Environmental Working Group, almost three-quarters of the nearly 900 sunscreens don't even work, WSB reports.

The study's results were even worse when it came to sunscreens especially made for children as 46 of those products scored between a 7 and 10, with 10 being the worst score.
