SUNAPEE, NH ─All Terrain, manufacturers of natural products for those who enjoy an active outdoor lifestyle believes that the FDA’s recently issued report on sunscreen protection provides a much-needed and, until now, unavailable set of product guidelines for manufacturers and a strong resource for consumers in search of accurate information.
Set to take effect for summer 2012, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced earlier this month that sunscreen products meeting modern standards for effectiveness may be labeled with new information to help consumers find products that, when used with other sun protection measures, reduce the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging, as well as help prevent sunburn.
All Terrain is already a step ahead of most manufacturers – with its products only needing minor adjustments in order to meet the FDA’s guidelines. These adjustments will be centered around labeling changes, including addressing “broad spectrum” and UVA protection statements.
“We applaud the FDA for releasing the final report. It should bring greater clarity and consistency of information for consumers,” said David Kulow, president of All Terrain. “Having said that, there will still need to be some more consumer education about the incremental value of SPF ratings.”
