Sunscreen Pills Don’t Work

It has been one hot summer.  You want to enjoy the outdoors, perhaps, go to the beach or the park.  You don’t like greasy feeling and odor of sunscreen lotions, so you instead buy sunscreen pills to protect yourself from the sun.  If you did and do head out, you may have been misled — and likely got a sunburn. Sunscreen pill manufacturers, such as Advanced Skin Brightening Formula, Sunsafe Rx, Solaricare and Sunergetic, claim that the pills are effective substitutes for sunscreen lotion.  The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) debunked this claim, i.e. the pills won’t prevent sunburn, slow sun-related aging, or protect you from skin cancer. Thus, it has ordered manufacturers of the pills to stop their false advertising, which violates federal law. If you have bought sunscreen pills, please contact us immediately to discuss your legal options.
