Coppertone® has been providing sun care for over 75 years. Since its first sunscreen in 1944, Coppertone's solar scientists continue to research, develop and invent new standards in sunscreen safety and effectiveness. For many people, the Coppertone brand has become synonymous with sun care, and with good reason.
Coppertone, which is owned by Schering-Plough, a subsidiary of Merck, was the first to launch the SPF (sun protection factor) index in North America, the first to develop a line of products specifically for babies, children and sports enthusiasts, and the first to offer continuous spray products and mousse sunscreens.
Its commitment to developing innovative sunscreens that meet the needs of each and every member of the family is stronger than ever. Parents, sports enthusiasts, runners, sun worshippers, swimmers, and everyday individuals trust the Coppertone brand when it comes to sun protection.
