Abstract

Sun protection has traditionally been seen as the application of chemical or physical sunscreens to the skin; however, better understanding of skin care and particularly photoprotective topicals is affecting opinions on the best products to apply to protect against ultraviolet (UV) exposure. New European Union (EU) regulations come in to force this in July of this year, insomuch as the EU Cosmetics Directive 76/768/EEC is to be replaced by Cosmetic Products Regulation 1223/2009), affecting changes to manufacturing, labelling, safety reports, product information files (PIFs) and serious undesirable effect reporting. The Food and Drug Administration has implemented also new regulations for sun protection factor (SPF) claims and drug facts labelling for SPF products. Last year, the author reviewed the effects of UV exposure and relevant regulations, as well as imminent regulatory changes in the US, and briefly reviewed new ingredients making an impact on cosmeceutical sun protection and damage repair (Bowes, 2012). This update paper reflects these changes and explores ways we can support our patients wishing to achieve a healthy glow.
