15th International Sun Protection Conference

4-5 June 2019, Royal College of General Practitioners, 30 Euston Square, London 

 

 Which wavelengths, what testing, which claims? What is our message to the consumer?

The consumer has difficulty in understanding the industry’s current sun protection message. The Royal Pharmaceutical Society’s survey found that SPF and UVA were not well understood by the normal sunscreen user and they called for a simpler more meaningful message. Added to this is the new direction to the public to expose their unprotected skin for short periods during the summer months to allow Vitamin D production.

Industry itself is not always clear as to the message that it should be giving to the consumer. The more recent and controversial areas of Infra-Red, Blue light and Visible light further complicates the sun protection message. New areas of sun protection may be good for marketing products, but is it just ‘hype’ or is there a serious biological need for this extended protection?

Together with the world’s scientific authorities in sun protection, the conference will examine the issues of which wavelengths we should be protecting against, how they will be tested, what is the regulatory position, what claims should we be making and what message should we be sending to the product users in terms of sun exposure and protection.
