New sunscreen rules proposed

24th August 2007

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has proposed new rules to regulate sunscreens.

The FDA proposes a four-star rating protocol for the protection provided by sunscreens against damaging UVA light. Few countries in the world currently label products to help users determine the standard of UVA protection they provide.

The FDA also wants to see sunscreens carry warning labels about skin cancer and to impose standards for testing and product formulation. The FDA will invite feedback on the proposal for 90 days, ending on November 26, 2007.
