Sunscreen overdose or misuse language not applicable in OTC label reg -- CTFA.

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

OTC LABELING REG OVERDOSE, MISUSE LANGUAGE NOT APPLICABLE TO SUNSCREENS, CTFA states, because the inclusion of such conditions for sunscreen products "exemplifies the inappropriateness of subjecting cosmetic-drug products" to FDA's Feb. 27 proposed labeling revisions for over-the-counter drugs. In Oct. 6 comments by the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association to the agency, CTFA contends it is "extremely unlikely" that FDA concerns that a higher risk has developed for overdose or misuse of OTCs as products with more potent dosages appear on the market would apply to sunscreens and other cosmetic-drugs.
