New rules for the preparation of sunscreen creams are provided
“The US Food and Drug Administration” has proposed new standards for the preparation, testing and labeling of sunscreen products that are sold without a doctor’s prescription.
According to Dr. Salam of the United Press News Agency from Washington, these proposed rules will cover all pharmaceutical sunscreen products that provide protection against UVA and UVB rays.
Dr. Andrew Van Eschenbach, an official of the US Food and Drug Administration, said that for more than 30 years, consumers have only known about the protection of sunscreen creams against ultraviolet B rays by using the Sun Protection Factor or SPF. be.
Based on this new plan, consumers will be able to know the level of protection of these creams against UVA rays from now on. This helps consumers make informed decisions to protect themselves and their children from the harmful effects of the sun’s rays.
The American Food and Drug Administration announced that UVA rays cause skin tanning and UVB rays cause sunburn.
Both of these rays damage the skin and increase the risk of skin cancer.
Based on this plan, a four-star grading system is created, where one star indicates the lowest level of protection against UVA rays and four stars indicates the highest level of protection against these rays.
If a sunscreen does not provide the least amount of protection against these rays, the words “no protection against UVA” should be written on the product.
