Sunscreen Regulations

Sunscreen products are tightly regulated in Australia, with some formulations classed as cosmetics and some as therapeutics. The laws are different again in New Zealand, and if you don’t know them it can be a costly trap.

Our team has been closely involved in the regulation of sunscreens and will help you ensure your product meets the regulations of both countries – including the all-important Australia / New Zealand Standard AS/NZS2604 which requires individual product testing by approved methods.
