UNDERSTANDING THE NEW FDA GUIDELINES ON SUNSCREEN
New sunscreen regulations were supposed to start in June, 2012 though the new FDA has just pushed these guidelines forward to year’s end 2012. These new rules only affect the labeling and the testing of sunscreens. This ruling is the first on sunscreen since 1978, and should offer some clarity to the world of sunscreen. The new regulations, however, should ground many claims made by companies, which will allow consumers to make a more educated choice when determining which Broad Spectrum sunscreen is best for them.
