Proposed Sunscreen Regulation Includes a Rating System, New Warning

FDA Proposes New Sunscreen Rules

Trade Group Responds

The Cosmetic, Toiletry, and Fragrance Association (CTFA) states that it is "pleased that the FDA has proposed these new sunscreen regulations" and that it looks forward to working with the FDA as it finalizes the sunscreen rules.

The CTFA points out that "while the final rulemaking is ongoing, there are currently strong FDA safety and effectiveness regulations that govern the manufacture and marketing of all sunscreen products."

"Consumers should have a high level of confidence that sunscreen products are safe and effective when used as directed," states the CTFA.

Like the FDA, AAD, ACS, and other health experts, the CTFA stresses that besides wearing sunscreen, people should minimize their sun exposure -- especially from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., when UVA/UVB exposure is highest -- and to wear protective clothing to safeguard skin.
