The alleged problem with sunscreen marketed today (earlier post) is its failure to fully block UVA. Apparently a product exists that will, in fact, block UVA, but it is not yet approved, according to one columnist and this ABC story.
Interestingly, L'Oreal's meroxyl website doesn't identify any FDA issues and in fact asserts that meroxyl has been in its products since 1993. This NYT story (from a blog's excerpt), as the original is archived) indicates that L'Oreal is working with the FDA.
