Take sunscreens with bogus claims off your shelves!

In 2011, the federal Food and Drug Administration issued new sunscreen regulations that banned the terms "sunblock," "sweatproof" and "waterproof" on sunscreen labels. Since the 1990s, the FDA has considered these terms misleading. But just last week, EWG researchers found sunscreens using these over-hyped claims still on store shelves.

The FDA has delayed action again. We can't wait another summer for the government to act. Our best shot at getting manufacturers to stop making these empty promises is to tell stores to clear their shelves of sunscreens with these bogus marketing claims.

As a supporter of EWG, it's very important to me that I be able to buy sunscreens that don't have false or misleading claims on the label.

In 2011, the FDA announced new regulations that banned the terms "sunblock," "sweatproof" and "waterproof" as false and misleading - terms that the FDA has taken issue with since the 1990s. But products with these labels are still on your stores’ shelves.

Tell sunscreen manufacturers that you will only sell products that don't mislead consumers and take sunscreens with these bogus claims off your shelves today.

Thank you.
