On NBC News said that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has new regulations on sunscreen. I had to laugh because the report and the position of the FDA reported that they were acting so enlightened, and that the FDA was doing was so great. I did some research on sunscreen for a long time now, and there are some essential things you need to know about the FDA and the notes of sun protection and sunscreen by the FDA.
The new labels Solar
Sunscreen labels have been a very dark past, so the FDA trying to regulate these products sun protection. Currently, the SPF, which means sun protection factor, refers to how many percent of UVB rays are blocked by sunscreen. In the future, sunscreen only once, the label can say "deep" is whether the sunscreen blocks both UVA and UVB rays. This is because the FDA requires that UVA may be carcinogenic. In addition, sunscreen must be at least an SPF of 15 to say that they can reduce the risk of skin cancer.
Has the highest SPF Matter?
At least, the FDA granted the right. Increasingly, dermatologists agree that anything above SPF 50 is useless because it does not block higher SPF significantly lower than SPF sunscreens. For example, SPF 15 sunscreen protects against 93% of UVB rays of the sun. Sunscreen SPF 30 is only 97% and a sunscreen SPF 50 only 98%. Dermatologists say that things only marketing of sunscreen manufacturers. It has been known for some time, so it's good to see the FDA to validate this point.
What did the FDA okay?
The FDA says manufacturers can no longer claim that sunscreen is "waterproof" sunscreen, because there is no proof of that is waterproof or sweat. Again, this is a point well known, but it is good that the FDA is not allowing these claims on the labels of sunscreen.
The FDA has no sun protection rating, and recommend "solar". They do not distinguish between chemical sunscreens and organic sunscreens. It is important to consider how far the FDA reports. Suggest that sunscreen may protect against skin cancer, but there is no mention of hazardous chemicals and harmful ingredients in sunscreens that may contribute to skin cancer, not only, but many other types of cancer itself! Not cite their own studies corroborate these claims.
I applaud the FDA to move in the right direction, but missed key points in the battle against skin cancer. There are many harmful chemicals that sunscreens than others, but that sunscreens are not organic. Is not it time to educate and protect yourself and your family from these chemical ingredients in sunscreens harmful?
