Serigne Gueye Ndiaye Comments on New Sunscreen Labeling
Date:6/18/2013

San Francisco, California (PRWEB) June 18, 2013

Serigne Gueye Ndiaye, who practices dermatology in San Francisco, California, is issuing comment on a new article that explains the changing rules regarding sunscreen. Starting this summer, sunscreen brands found on store shelves will need to meet new labeling requirements from the Food and Drug Administration. These new rules were created to help clear up consumer misconceptions regarding proper usage and effectiveness of sunscreen.

With the new labeling laws, sunscreen that has an SPF of 15 or lower must come with a warning label that states it will not protect against skin cancer. Products can no longer claim that they are waterproof, only water-resistant. There is also some debate about whether sunscreens with SPF’s that are higher than 50 should even remain on the market, since it is not completely clear whether these products are actually more effective. There is also concern that consumers may be lulled into a false sense of security by the high SPF on the bottle, thus avoiding reapplying the product regularly.

The changes come partially as a response to ever increasing skin cancer rates, even as sunscreen sales bring in $1B each year. Melanoma diagnoses have steadily climbed nearly two percent since 2000, and are becoming frighteningly common among young, white women.

Some experts attribute this to improper use of sunscreen, where people either apply too little or fail to reapply the substance every two hours as advised. There is also concern that many sunscreens protect users from ultraviolet B rays, but do not necessarily also offer protection from ultraviolet A rays. These are the rays that are known to cause skin
