Today’s Consumer Reports review rating EltaMD®

 

Statement from EltaMD, Inc., Chief Operating Officer Ede Payne
regarding Consumer Reports 2016 sunscreen study
(CARROLLTON, TEXAS – May 17, 2016) Today’s Consumer Reports review rating EltaMD®
UV Aero is incorrect and misleading.
UV-Aero-SCF-HRn-Sunscreen-Skin Cancer-Sun Tanning-Beach-Outdoors-Consumer Report has acknowledged to us in the past that in purporting to report the SPF values
of sunscreens, including EltaMD UV Aero, it does not use the SPF validation testing protocol
mandated by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). FDA regulations provide
that SPF values on sunscreen labels must be derived using the FDA-mandated testing
protocol. No other testing method is approved by the FDA.
Reliable and expert organizations familiar with the FDA-mandated protocol, such as The Skin
Cancer Foundation and the American Melanoma Foundation, as well as hundreds of practicing
physicians, regularly recommend EltaMD UV Aero. They are confident doing so because they
know that the SPF values on EltaMD are derived from testing by independent, FDA-registered
laboratories with long experience testing sunscreen products in strict conformity with the FDA mandated
protocol. Indeed, test reports based on the FDA protocol and validating the SPF 45
value of EltaMD UV Aero are available on EltaMD’s website.
Insofar as the magazine’s rating of EltaMD UV Aero does not appear to be based on the FDA mandated
testing protocol, we believe it to be unfounded and misleading. Sadly, misleading
reports like the one published today could discourage consumers from choosing reliable
sunscreen products whose SPF values have been derived through testing conducted in strict
conformity with the applicable FDA regulations, such as EltaMD UV Aero.

Vacation Locations: Knowledge is Fun Too!

Most children (and adults, too) will either roll their eyes or sigh when, while speaking about vacation locations, the word “learning” just happens to be mentioned. Yes, it is a fact that school trips take all of us during our younger years to everything from museums to libraries to historic locations in order to teach us things we should know. But when thinking about your vacation, you should know that by considering journeying to a particular place that just happens to register high on the historical or educational meter, you could have even more fun.

Is Social Media Still Growing?

It was in 1999, Bill Gates wrote a book titled, “Business @ the Speed of Thought.” Within these pages, the man who became the computer world’s wizard made massively bold predictions that, at the time, sounded ridiculous and outrageous to those who read them. But when you look at how the social media realm has grown over the past few decades, it is important to take note that not only did his predictions from 1999 come true, but they are also responsible for seeing social media continue to grow by leaps and bounds to this day.
