"Sunscreen manufacturers understand that sunscreens are a critically important tool for consumers and health professionals in the fight against skin cancer, premature aging, and other harmful effects of the sun, and they have made the safety and efficacy of their products their very highest priority.

"Consumers can be confident in the safety of the sunscreens they buy for themselves and their families because all sunscreens sold in the U.S. are regulated a
