Shedding Light on Common Sunscreen Myths - Myth 5 of 5
Here is my last myth for the sunscreen series. Myth 5. Any quality contract manufacturer can produce a quality sunscreen.
Not true! Sunscreens are regulated as OTC drug products and require a Drug Facts label that meets the FDA’s requirements. Only FDA-registered, cGMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) compliant contract manufacturers, such as DermaQuest, Hayward, CA, are allowed by law to produce these products. I have had years of experience developing broad-spectrum sunscreens, using a broad range of chemical and mineral filters, antioxidants and complementary ingredients, like Vitamins C and E, proven to help boost a sunscreen’s SPF; red algae with UV-filtering compounds; and Chromabright, a skin whitener with UV protective features.
