The FDA has approved the use of ecamsule in a sunscreen. Ecamsule provides protection against UV-A, the lack of which is the basis for lawsuits (see here and here for earlier posts). It appears [PDF, search for "ecamsule"] that ecamsule is the same as meroxyl, which, as I noted in the second of my earlier posts, appears to already be available in L'Oreal products. So: I'm still confused.
