Word to the Wise …

Posted on: August 9, 2012

Reading sunscreen labels and understanding them is almost as difficult as deciphering a text from your teenager. They claim SPF,  but that only indicates protection against UVB not UVA.  Translation? SPF claims only indicate protection from the sun’s BURNING rays, but there are currently no requirements to protect skin from the AGING rays that lead to wrinkles and, potentially, cancer.

The good news—clarity is coming soon. In June 2011 the FDA announced new sunscreen regulations (to go into effect by December 2012) designed to help consumers stay better protected. This is great news but means you need to spend another summer deciphering ingredient lists to ensure you are protected.


Some of the sunscreen products on shelves this summer may carry cancer-causing risk labels this December.

Don’t fall for false protection promises this summer, and avoid getting “burned” by sunscreens just offering partial protection.  Tune in to Derm RF this month for the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to SPF so you and your family will be protected all summer long.
