Environmental Group EWG Says Only 8% of Sunscreens Are Safe and Effective

Group Calls Some Sunscreens 'Snake Oil'

Sunscreen Industry Responds continued...

“This is just a ludicrous charge,” Bailey tells WebMD. “I don’t know how they came up with this.”

The industry representatives agree with the environmental group on one thing, however: that long-awaited changes in sunscreen labeling by the FDA will help consumers better understand the difference between sunscreens.

For the first time, sunscreen manufacturers will be required to provide information on the amount of UVA screening provided by their products.

UVA rays do not cause sunburns, but they do contribute to skin cancer and sun-related skin aging.

The new regulations are also expected to prohibit manufacturers from claiming SPF of more than 50+.

A spokeswoman for the FDA tells WebMD that the finalized guidelines should be made public later this year.
