SPF Ratings

I have noticed that some of the powder products that used to have an SPF rating no longer have a rating. Do the SPF rating system change for powder?



  • In the US powders are not "officially" recognized as sunscreens. The US FDA has requested additional testing be done before giving them official sanction. Maybe something similar has happened in Australia (at least I assume you're in Australia from your user name.) 
  • Not many powders produced locally in Aus, so maybe to do with imported products.
