Panel pressures FDA for final sunscreen monograph

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

A panel organized by the Citizens for Sun Protection calls for FDA to finalize the long-awaited sunscreen monograph, require sunscreens to provide both UVA and UVB protection and transparent labeling, and approve photostable, broad-spectrum sunscreen ingredients that defend against UVA and UVB rays, before another summer passes, according to Nov. 20 release. FDA issued in August 2007 a proposed rule to amend the OTC Sunscreen Drug Product Monograph by adding a UVA label standard. The rule is stalled in part because the industry views some labeling requirements as unduly burdensome (1"The Rose Sheet" Jan. 14, 2008, p. 3)
