FDA Pushes Back New Sunscreen Regulations

If you've been eagerly anticipating the new sunscreen label changes that were scheduled to be introduced this summer, you'll have to wait a bit longer. The FDA is giving sunscreen manufacturers a bit of a reprieve and extending the deadline to December 17, 2012. Small manufacturers get until December 2013 to implement the new regulations. The delay is on account of the fact that the FDA didn't think some sunscreen manufacturers would be able to comply in time. For more on the new rules, be sure to check out Shining A Light on Sunscreen in our June issue. Unfortunately, the issue shipped before the new deadline was implemented. However, you can still learn about how these new regulations will benefit your spa-goers.
