The latest news in Sun Protection
New FDA Standards for Sunscreen
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently announced new rules for labeling and
testing sunscreen products to help consumers make more informed choices.
How will this change affect your favorite products?
These important changes won't affect what's inside our bottle, so keep enjoying safe
and effective Hawaiian Tropic® sunscreens with confidence. You'll start seeing our
labeling changes on products no later than June 2012, as required by the FDA.
Understanding the Changes
Broad Spectrum Protection
The FDA provided new guidance on testing products for protection against UVA
(the rays responsible for aging) and UVB (the rays responsible for burning).
Products that pass this test will be labeled "Broad Spectrum".
New Claim Restrictions
Sun care products can no longer claim to be "waterproof," "sweat proof", or be a
"sunblock". They can claim "water resistant", but will need to state the length of
water resistance (i.e. Water Resistant 40 min or Water Resistant 80 min).
Drug Facts Box
All sunscreen products must now include drug facts on their container.
Hawaiian Tropic® products already include a drug facts box.
Hawaiian Tropic® products already comply with many of these guidelines, so there
will not be significant changes to the labels.
Hawaiian Tropic® products SPF 15 and higher will continue to carry
The Skin Cancer Foundation seal of approval, as they have for over
twenty years. Learn more at www.skincancer.org.
