Coppertone is most recognized by its cute commercials of a dog is pulling down the bathing suit bottoms of a little girl in pig-tails. With its famous slogan "Tan - Don't burn", Coppertone has been America's leading sun care brand since 1944.

Benjamin Green, a pharmacist and Coppertone's founder, invented the first sunless tanner in 1960. Twenty years later, the first UVA/UVB sunscreen was born. Today, Coppertone is part of Schering - Plough Company but still has its own sun care product line that includes general sun protection for adults, an array of sensitive skin care, sunscreen for children and babies, sports sunscreens, after-sun lotions and sunless tanning lotions.
Coppertone's Triple Protection sunscreens contain zinc oxide and vitamin A, C and E. These ingredients provide long-lasting UV protection. Coppertone's Spectra 3 series has a unique technology that absorbs UV rays before they're able to reach the skin.
Most of Coppertone's sunscreens are non-greasy, non-comedogenic and PABA-free, as well as water-resistant, hypo-allergenic and fragrance-free. Coppertone's oil-free products are labeled with a bright pink tag, so they can are recognized as sensitive skin friendly. To help make sun protection more comfortable, Coppertone recently formulated a new line called Ultrasheer. This line is so light and gentle that you won't even feel like you are wearing sunscreen. Coppertone does conduct animal testing. One bottle of Coppertone Oil Free Sunblock Lotion, SPF 45 (8-fluid ounces) is about $12 online.
