Photobiology Committee

Scientific data for each product that is submitted for the Seal of Recommendation is rigorously reviewed by a volunteer committee of renowned photobiologists — experts in the study of the interaction of ultraviolet radiation and the skin. It is their expertise and credibility in the field that make the Seal of Recommendation a trusted and valuable resource for consumers. The committee must be completely satisfied with the testing results in order for a product to be granted the Seal. The members of The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Photobiology Committee are:
