Seal of Recommendation

The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation is granted to sun protection products that have been reviewed by and meet the specific criteria of an independent Photobiology Committee. The Seal is a symbol of safe and effective sun protection that is recognized by consumers worldwide. One of the first programs offered by the Foundation, it quickly gained acceptance from consumers for setting the standard for effective sun protection.

Sun protective products with the Seal include sunscreens, sunglasses, auto and residential window film, awnings/umbrellas, clothing and laundry products. The Seal of Recommendation appears on product labels, packaging, clothing hang tags, in-store promotions, catalogs, in print and TV advertising, and online. 

Note: Some products that have received the Seal do not have it on their packaging.
