Sunscreen SPF limits should be removed in light of new risk understanding, CTFA says.

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

SUNSCREEN SPF LIMITS REMOVAL SUGGESTED BY CTFA in light of heightened medical concern regarding sun exposure in comments to FDA on the sunscreen tentative final monograph April 15. The Cosmetic, Toiletry & Fragrance Association recommends the abolition of any upper limit cap on the sun protection factor, arguing such a limit would "ensure that products that provide greater protection [would] be prevented from being marketed." Increased protection is "especially important" to photosensitive consumers, who represent over 10% of the general population, CTFA notes. The recent comments reiterate a position taken by the trade group in 1994.
