FDA Sunscreen Guidance: Absorption Data Is A MUsT For GRASE Review

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

The agency maintains maximal usage trials are essential in sunscreen ingredient GRASE assessments, despite industry objections that the tests have not been used for UV filters and no protocol is established. FDA’s final guidance closely mirrors its draft issued a year ago, which stakeholders projected would further delay consumer access to updated sunscreen products.
