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.

Where to Vacation? Go Big or Stay Home!

We speak about luxury vacations, budget vacations, vacations that are fun for the kids, and many more areas of travel at this time of year. But there is also a category that many do not touch upon because they “assume” it is far too difficult for those on a budget to be able to enjoy these jaw-dropping wonders. However, whether you are a backpacker looking to “become a journeyman” and all you need is the price of the plane ticket; or one that is saving up for that “ultimate trip,” these are locations where either can go to create memories that will be among the greatest and grandest of their entire lives.

How Are Retail Sales in 2017?

Despite consumer uncertainty, as well as a very sluggish beginning to 2017, the U.S. retail sales industry is projected to increase 4% this year. Headlines show that many retailers and companies posted “soft” holiday sales to end 2016, which caused some notable retailers to either cut jobs or close stores as a result. However, when it comes to 2017, the National Retail Federation (NFR) released an economic forecast projecting the retail industry (this excludes automobiles, gas stations, and restaurants) to grow and reach that 4% increase aim.
