‘Sunscreens that pass FDA's broad spectrum test procedure, which measures a product's ultraviolet A (UVA) protection relative to its ultraviolet B (UVB) protection, may be labeled as "Broad Spectrum SPF [value]" on the front label.’
The quote is FDA’s FINAL RULE.
At Wal today, needed more 10# rod for the new van tropical roof/kayak-canoe carrier/platform, I crept up on the sunscreen bookcase from the opposite side, completely occupied with other choices.
AHA ! more sunscreen. L’Oriole ad nuaseum.
What ? None had ‘may be labeled as "Broad Spectrum SPF [value]" on the front label.’
None. However ‘all is not lost.’ Each brand had a variation of THE FINAL RULE label.
And… curiously as SPF decreased from 100 to 30, labeling began moving more toward at least an accurate paraphrase of THE FINAL RULE.
Is there a lawyer about ? Are we overburdened ?
LA news has a UTUBE on Consumer Reports ignoring Coppertone.
The investigation here is short but first try we see an online pharmacy advertizing top Copper using the FINAL RULE label nest to the bottle where the asked for label is of course missing.
The Banana Boat 100 here does not repeat THE FINAL RULE wording.
I have learned sprays are flammable, maybe toxic.. So heads up !
