Meroxyl Update

In response to my confusion about whether meroxyl (which helps protect against UV-A when in sunscreen) is in fact available in the U.S., commenter Jane reports that it is only available today in L'Oreal's overseas products.  It has now, however, been approved for U.S. marketing.

The absence of UV-A protection is the basis for fraud suits contending that sunscreen marketers have been misleading in representing the extent of protection provided by their products.
