(Best Syndication News) - The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced new labeling requirements and testing standards for manufacturers of sunscreen that are sold over-the-counter. The final test requirements and product labeling will be in effect in one year.

The new regulation will limit the highest sunscreen rating to “SPF 50+.” The FDA says that anything higher than 50, has not been proven to show anymore benefit than SPF 50 rating. The FDA suggests that consumers read both the front and back of the product label to determine the amount of protection, the sunscreen lotion or spray offers.

Products must pass testing for certain criteria in order to claim that it protects from the sun's rays. The manufacturers will have to follow new methods to test the sunscreen effectiveness as outlined by the FDA. The label will need to reflect the test results.
