The Skin Cancer Foundation grants its Seal of Recommendation to products that meet the Foundation’s specific criteria for effective UV sun protection. The Seal program covers many categories of sun protection, each with its own specific standards. Sunscreen products may be granted the Daily Use or Active Seal. All other sun protection products may be granted the Traditional Seal. Learn More about the 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 sunscreen, sunglasses, auto and residential window film and glass, awnings/umbrellas and clothing. 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.

The Seal of Recommendation program is divided into several categories to better assist you in choosing quality sun protection products.
The Daily Use Seal is used for sunscreens that are intended to protect customers from incidental sun exposure, the kind that occurs over short periods of time and might include walking to and from the car, going to work, and running errands. Examples of Daily Use sunscreens include moisturizers, color cosmetics, foundations, eye creams and lip products. This seal includes a UVA protection requirement.
The Active Seal is used for sunscreens that should protect the wearer from extended sun exposure, such as exposure received outdoors during recreational activities. Examples might include high SPF products, sport sunscreens, zinc oxide/titanium dioxide sticks, and baby products. This seal includes a UVA protection and water resistance requirement.
The Traditional Seal is used for all sun protection products excluding sunscreens. Examples include sunglasses, auto and residential window film and glass, awnings/umbrellas, clothing and laundry products. The testing requirements include a ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) of 30 or higher for clothing and fabrics, and 99% or greater blockage of ultraviolet A (UVA) UVA and ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation for sunglasses and UV films.

A GUIDE FOR THE PTA ADVOCATE (source: FloridaPTA.org)
WHAT IS ADVOCACY? In the context of PTA, Advocacy is support and speaking up for children – in schools, in communities, and before government bodies and other organizations that make decisions affecting children.
Those who choose to lobby, to take their case directly to their elected representatives, represent one very important form of advocacy called “grassroots advocacy.”
