Welcome to Part 2 of our posts that cover the specifics of the new FDA requirements for sunscreen formulas and packaging. There are five new primary directives and with our last post we covered 1 – 3. Today we will conclude the list by going over the fourth and fifth mandate.
4. Mandatory Drug Facts Box—All sunscreen containers must now display the drug facts identification. In addition to these facts, all containers must also include the statement that sunscreen must be re-applied every 2 hours to ensure adequate UV protection.
5. Skin Cancer Prevention Claim—If a bottle of sunscreen is making the Broad
Spectrum claim on the front of the package, then the following skin cancer prevention claim must be made within the drug facts box: “When used as directed, this sunscreen helps prevent skin cancer and early skin aging.”
Rocky Mountain Sunscreen has proudly published the drugs facts box for the past five years. In addition, we have never made the claim that our products are “Sweatproof,” “Sunblock,” or provides “All-Day Protection.”
All we want to do is to provide you with bulk sunscreen that does offer you broad spectrum protection. If you have any additional questions about our products, the new FDA mandates, or how our products conform to those mandates, please do not hesitate to contact us.
