This is just a brief follow-up to the posts I did previously (May 25th & 27th) on the importance of SUNSCREENS. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently cracked down on sunscreen manufacturers and what they can claim on their labels. Key things to note:
- Manufacturers now have to 'prove' that their products protect against UVA and UVB rays if claiming that they reduce the risk of skin cancer, wrinkles, and sunburn
- FDA is barring the use of the terms: sunblock, waterproof, and sweatproof
- Labels must be changed to reflect the new requirements
- FDA also plans to ban the use of any SPF rating above 50, since there is no evidence to prove that those products provide adequate protection.
Be blessed. Be beautiful. Be smart. Be safe.
