FDA Proposes New Sunscreen Regulations

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a proposed rule that would update regulatory requirements for most sunscreen products in the United States. The proposal addresses sunscreen active ingredient safety, dosage forms, sun protection factor (SPF), and broad-spectrum requirements. It also proposes updates to how products are labeled to make it easier for consumers to identify key product information.
The Skin Cancer Foundation applauded the FDA for working to elevate standards for effective sun protection. As science and technology have advanced over the past several years to dramatically improve the efficacy of sunscreens, continued evaluation of the regulations associated with them is necessary.
