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.

Finding Relaxation in the Most Remote Locations of All

It is a fact that the largest travel locations are also beyond popular. Among the downsides of this fact is that when you’re looking for peace, quiet, and basically a chance to do nothing more than spend time with yourself and, perhaps, one other best friend, the most popular places don’t offer that. In other words, it is the most remote (sometimes most beautiful) spots out there that you want to visit. If so, here are just a few that are there for the taking:

Add Value with Summer Home Renovation Projects

There are a whole list of summer activities for you and the kids planned. Most of them, of course, you want to be nothing but fun, such as grilling outside on the patio or swimming in the pool. However, having the backyard pool and patio are two things you really need in place before either of those activities could be enjoyed. And building this area could be a great summer project in order to not only get the house you really want, but add value to the home for a future sale.
