FDA Requiring Labeling Changes to Sunscreen Labels

FDA Requiring Labeling Changes to Sunscreen Labels

Sunscreen labels for products sold in the US will change. The Food and Drug Administration is requiring manufacturers to disclose whether products protect against two classes of ultraviolet rays — UVA and UVB — and whether they reduce the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging or just sunburn alone. What’s more, manufacturers will no longer be able to claim that products are waterproof or sweat proof. Instead, labels will be able to say only if they are “water resistant for 40 or 80 minutes.”
