Watch out for the new sunscreen for your body!
If you have skin that’s prone to redness or irritation, you might want to avoid using a sunscreen that’s been on the market for more than five years.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is requiring sunscreen to be on the list of products with new safety data from the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH).
The sunscreen is now a required ingredient on sunscreen formulations that have been on store shelves since November.
“We know that there are people who use sunscreens as their only protection for their skin.
This sunscreen has been in the market longer than that,” said Sarah Brown, an associate professor of dermatology at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, who helped draft the FDA list.
“It’s not just for those who live in hot climates.
It’s for anyone who’s not accustomed to the sun.”
The FDA has a long history of requiring sunscreen for sunscreen protection, Brown added.
The sunscreen ingredient list began in the mid-1990s, with the addition of chlorhexidine as an anti-inflammatory agent.
A list of ingredients that are considered safe and effective for sun protection has been published since 2006.
The list of sunscreen ingredients has changed little over the years.
In 2015, the FDA added zinc as a sunblock ingredient, which can be used on sensitive skin.
The FDA also added magnesium sulfate as a sunscreen ingredient, but only for adults age 18 and older.
The new sunscreen ingredients for 2017 are magnesium oxide, titanium dioxide, and zinc oxide.
Brown noted that the FDA is considering whether to include other sunscreen ingredients such as magnesium carbonate, zinc oxide, and titanium dioxide in future sunscreen lists.
The FDA’s updated list of sunscopes includes the zinc oxide as a component.
The new sunscreen is designed to block out UV rays and prevent redness, irritation, and inflammation of the skin.
“The combination of zinc oxide and titanium oxide helps reduce the appearance of redness and irritation,” said John Hickey, chief executive officer of the American Sunscreens Association, which represents the sunscreen industry.
“And, zinc helps protect the skin from UVB, which has been linked to skin cancer and premature aging.”
According to the FDA, sunscents are safe to use in the sun.
According to the manufacturer’s claims, the product contains no parabens, alcohols, or phthalates, and is not subject to a pre-purchase label.
The USPSTF does not recommend sunscreen for use outside of a limited sun protection regimen.
The USPHT, which is the US Department of Health and Human Services, says sunscreen is safe to apply to the skin, but that sunscapes can’t protect against UVB radiation.
