Sunscreens are regulated by the FDA as Over the Counter (OTC) drugs. Before they enter the market, they must be shown to be both safe and effective and must comply with requirements listed in the FDA’s OTC sunscreen monograph. This webinar has been assembled as an educational session to help sunscreen suppliers, formulators, marketers, and manufacturers understand the pertinent details behind the SPF product testing.
Topics include, an overview of the FDA method, determination and validation of SPF values, product performance as it pertains to the FDA monograph, understanding the results of your SPF testing and how to interpret these results for industry compliance and label claims. After attending this webinar, participants will be in a better position to make strategic well-informed decisions based on the data they will receive from this type of testing and analysis that best fits their needs and product development goals.
