FDA CompliantUpdated 7 months ago

The FDA considers sunscreen to be an over-the-counter drug, and regulates it as such. You might think this goes without saying, but in the past year, many “sunscreen” products have popped up on places like Amazon that are coming from China. Amazon does not take responsibility for checking that these products follow FDA guidelines, and most of them do not. In the US, the FDA dictates exactly where sunscreens can be made, how they are tested, and what the packaging and labels can and cannot say. It requires that every batch undergo rigorous testing to ensure that it meets the claim on the label. We are proud to follow FDA guidelines so that you know exactly what you are getting when you purchase a Brush On Block product. We recommend that buyers purchase their sunscreen only from reputable companies that manufacture in the US in FDA-inspected facilities.
