The Best Mineral Sunscreen to Reflect the Sun’s Harsh Rays
Mineral sunscreen in Canada
In Canada, sunscreen (aka sunblock or SPF) is classified as a drug, so it needs to meet the requirements in Canadas Food and Drugs Act before it can be imported, advertised or sold here. Most other countries classify sunscreen as a cosmetic (including Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, India, Korea, the EU, etc) or an OTC drug (U.S.) so Health Canadas regulations are fairly extensive in comparison. (When it comes to application, sunscreen rules are much easier to follow, we promise!) While thats definitely a good thing for our health and safety, it may mean a longer waiting time before a brand is able to offer their sunscreen for sale in Canada.
