Sunscreen pills won't protect you from a sunburn: FDA

May 28, 2018

Sunscreen is important all year round, but as summer gears up and more people head outdoors, don't rely on sunscreen pills to keep you safe. "We've found products purporting to provide protection from the sun that aren't delivering the advertised benefits," the statement read. "There's no pill or capsule that can replace your sunscreen." "Instead they're misleading consumers, and putting people at risk. Today we sent warning letters to companies illegally marketing pills and capsules labelled as dietary supplements that make unproven drug claims about protecting consumers from the harms that come from sun exposure without meeting the FDA's standards for safety and effectiveness."
