Report no:

Ordered: 27.02.2018

Publishing: 10.06.2021

Key message:

This risk-benefit assessment examines effects of sunscreens when used as solar UVR protection. The assessment will identify and compare any adverse health effects caused by sunscreen products/sunscreen ingredients with any reduction in solar UVR-induced adverse health effects.

The risk-benefit assessment of sunscreen is self-initiated by the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food and Environment (VKM) Panel on Food Additives, Flavourings, Processing Aids, Materials in Contact with Food, and Cosmetics.

The project is scheduled for publication June 2021.
