Love Sun Body 100% Natural Origin Mineral Sunscreens are Truly Effective Sunscreens
Truly Effective Sunscreens
The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires all sunscreen manufactures test sunscreen for SPF, water resistance and broad spectrum. As long as sunscreen has UVA and UVB protection, it can be labeled as broad spectrum. When its most recent round of sunscreen regulations went into effect in December 2012, the FDA set lax standards for UVA protection.
UVA rays can cause the skin to age, can suppress the immune system and can contribute to the development of melanoma.
In the nations regulated by the European Commission, manufacturers voluntarily comply with a recommendation that broad spectrum protection by the ratio of UVA to UVB protection, requiring one third of the SPF number to be UVA protection. This provides a significantly greater amount of UVA protection than many American sunscreens, ensuring adequate UVA protection.
EWG estimates that half of the sunscreens assessed this year are too weak for the European market due to inadequate UVA filtering.
All Love Sun Body formulas meet the FDA requirements for broad spectrum and the more stringent European Commission's recommendation on UVA protection.
