UVA sunscreens

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

Industry coalition calls for use of "UVA protection" and "extra UVA protection" sunscreen label claims in Aug. 30 comments to FDA. The group - Schering-Plough, Johnson & Johnson, L'Oreal, Estee Lauder, Mary Kay and Bath & Body Works - supports the two-tiered UVA protection labeling designation in contrast to the "broad-spectrum" or "pass/fail" labeling allowed in the tentative final monograph. The labeling statement would depend on proportionate protection against UVA to SPF for UVB, but SPF "should retain preeminence" on packaging, the coalition notes. The group also supports in vivo testing of UVA protection efficacy by means of Protection Factor A method and/or Persistent Pigment Darkening method
