The Latest News on Sunscreen
In June, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced new requirements for over-the-counter sunscreens. While the agency still believes the use of sunscreen is safe and effective, they are looking more closely at marketing claims used by manufacturers.
Specifically, makers can no longer use the terms "waterproof", "sweatproof", and "sunblock" because the claims overstate the effectiveness of the product. Sunscreens will also have a Broad Spectrum Value, which will indicate the product's protection level from both UVA and UVB rays.
