how to read the new label on sunscreen

New sunscreen labels will make it easier for you to make an informed choice on sunscreen.

A mix of old and new labels will remain on the shelf for a period of time because the FDA has allowed a phase-in of the labeling requirements and retailers can choose to sell remaining stock of older labeled product.

UVB rays are the ones that cause sunburns. A good way to remember this is UVB = UVBURN!  A product labeled with SPF (sun protection factor) minimizes UVB (sunburn) rays. The higher the SPF, the more protection against UVB rays. Watch for an SPF of at least 15.

UVB and UVA rays in combination create skin cancer and skin aging issues. A product labeled BROAD SPECTRUM will help minimize both UVB and UVA rays.

Look for a sunscreen that is labeled both    BROAD SPECTRUM and SPF.
