Physician Skin Care Specialist Says Proposed New Rules for Sunscreen Products Will Better Protect the Public
Date:9/4/2007

uld represent high protection and four stars would represent the highest UVA protection available in an over-the-counter sunscreen product. If a sunscreen product does not provide at least a low level (one star) of protection, the FDA is proposing to require that the product have a "no UVA protection" marking on the front label near the SPF value.

In addition, a "warnings" statement in the "Drug Facts" box will be required of all sunscreen product manufacturers. The warning will say: "UV exposure from the sun increases the risk of skin cancer, premature skin aging, and other skin damage. It is important to decrease UV exposure by limiting time in the sun, wearing protective clothing, and using a sunscreen." The purpose of the warning is to increase awareness that sunscreens are only one part of a sun protection program.

Dr. Street is a member of the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD). According to the AAD, more than one million new cases of skin cancer will be diagnosed in the United States this year. Excessive exposure to UV radiation is the most important preventable cause of skin cancer.

The FDA is accepting comments on the new rule until November 26, 2007. "I am certainly going to do everything that I can to make sure that the new rule is adopted and implemented," Dr. Street said.
