HAWAIIAN TROPIC IS COMMITTED TO PROVIDING SAFE AND RELIABLE SUN PROTECTION FOR CONSUMERS

Hawaiian Tropic focuses fully on providing quality products & effective sun protection that meet all EU & Cosmetic Regulations (EC 1223/2009). Any product containing a claim must be tested & must meet these regulations before it can be sold. All Hawaiian Tropic products are rigorously tested, meeting all SPF, UVA & EU requirements & regulations. Both Hawaiian Tropic Satin Protection SPF 30 & Silk Hydration SPF 30, have been fully tested at an independent, well-qualified laboratory, in accordance with the International Industry Standard ISO 24444:2010 Sun Protection Factor Test Method & fully meet the requirements for SPF 30. We are confident in our test results which consistently indicate year over year that our SPF 30 products in fact exceed the label claim & EU requirements, even after 80 minutes in the water.

In response to the WHICH? report on Sunscreen Labeling published 27th May 2016, The Cosmetic, Toiletry & Perfumery Association (CTPA) have said: "People can be confident in sunscreens because companies use supportive data and scientists with expert suncare knowledge to check their SPF test results, and will only sell the product when the whole package of development test data and the final human SPF test results match. Which? does not and cannot check its test data against any background support data, so neither they, nor we, can be sure of Which?'s results." CPTA go on to say "Labelling a product with an incorrect SPF is illegal and companies simply would not risk their reputations, or their customers' health, by mislabelling sunscreens."

Visit the CTPA Youtube channel, or the 'Sunscreens' section on their website to hear more about what Dr. Chris Flower & Dr. Emma Meredith from CTPA have to say, as well as consultant dermatologist and British Skin Foundation spokesperson Dr. Emma Wedgeworth by clicking here and also here.

All Hawaiian Tropic products with an SPF 15 & above have earned The Skin Cancer Foundation's Active or Daily Use Seal of Recommendation. In order to earn the Seal, the products' formulations & test results are reviewed by the Foundation's Photobiology Committee, which is made up of volunteer dermatologists who are experts in the interaction of ultraviolet radiation & the skin.
