Is your sunscreen protecting you from cancer-causing rays?

Is your sunscreen protecting you from cancer-causing rays?
New FDA regulations implemented to help inform consumer. 

Not all sunscreen is created equal. Did you know that many sunscreens labeled as “High SPF” are only protecting you from UVB rays associated with sunburn, and not the dangerous UVA rays linked to cancer and premature ageing? The FDA’s recent guidelines are aimed to prevent false claims and to ensure consumers are informed on the effectiveness of protection. Dermatone® has spent over 30 years innovating and improving its products with stringent testing to ensure a superior protection.

After many years of deliberation, the FDA has produced a final monograph that all sunscreen manufacturers must adhere to. The claim “Broad Spectrum” can only be used on products with a SPF 15 and above, with proven testing data to ensure a specific level of UVA and UVB protection.  Dermatone products are made with ingredients providing high UVA and UVB protection, which exceed the levels and standards the FDA will be enforcing.

The FDA states that the terms “waterproof” and “sweat proof” can no longer be used on packaging, but instead be replaced by the term, “very water resistant”. In order to use a water resistance claim, the product must pass stringent testing. The new rules will also require the time of water exposure the product has gone through to support the water resistant claim. This will be labeled as either “40 minutes” or “80 minutes” on packaging. Dermatone has 80 minutes of water testing and effectiveness, which is the highest rating allowed by the new FDA monograph. Dermatone has undergone all testing to ensure broad spectrum protection and 80 minutes of water-resistant testing, the highest standard a product can achieve with the FDA.

Dermatone continues to maintain compliance with FDA, and all formulations are made in the USA at FDA approved facilities. Striving to offer the highest quality protection possible, Dermatone products offer high UVA and UVB protection, with the added benefit of anti-oxidant rich formulas to rejuvenate and heal skin.
