Sensible Sunscreen Alliance

The Sensible Sunscreen Alliance supports access to all FDA-approved sunscreens as an important skin cancer prevention tool. Given the importance of sunscreen for public health and the lack of conclusive data about its impact on the environment, lawmakers must not create additional barriers for consumers to choose safe, effective and FDA-approved sunscreens to protect themselves against skin cancer and other damage from sun exposure. To impose such restrictions on access to sunscreen may lead to less use of sunscreen and places hypothetical risk to the environment above known risk to human health.
