European Uniton: Commission alerts consumers to the importance of sun protection

At the start of the holiday season, the European Commission alerts consumers to the importance of adequate protection from the sun this summer and reminds them to look out for the clearer labelling regime on sunscreen bottles. The new labels – including a new UV-A logo or seal on bottles and a ban on misleading terms such as “sun blocker” or “total protection” – are a response to a Commission recommendation on sunscreen products adopted in September 2006. The Commission is also seeking to remind consumers that there are several reasons why sunscreen products should be only one out of a number of measures which are necessary to protect from the UV radiation of the sun.Source: European Commission press release; find full text here>>.
