Guided by the Canadian Dermatology Association (CDA), the Sun Protection Program (SPP) acknowledges sunscreen products that adhere to essential criteria. It serves as your guide to effective sun protection, ensuring that the recognized products align with key standards:

    SPF sun protection 30 and above

    Minimally perfumed or non perfumed

    Gentle on skin to avoid skin irritation

    Do not clog pores

Products recognized by the Sun Protection Program (SPP), launched in 1989, are assessed by a scientific expert panel of Certified Dermatologists to ensure they have at least an SPF 30 or above, and a minimal irritation potential to ensure adequate sun protection for Canadians.

When you see the Recognized Sun Protection logo on products, you can trust that they have SPF 30 or higher, are minimally perfumed or non-perfumed, gentle on skin to avoid skin irritation and do not clog pores.
