Spotlight on sun protection
MedEsthetics
There is something new under the sun. Late last year, Congress enacted the Sunscreen Innovation Act, which the president signed into law on Nov. 24. The Act amends the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's time and extent application program for sunscreen actives and imposes time limits on the ingredient review process.
