On Wednesday, the Senate passed the Sunscreen Innovation Act (S. 2141) which would require the Department of Health and Human Services to establish a process for the review and approve over-the-counter (OTC) sunscreens.

The Senate passed the measure through a unanimous consent agreement and it now heads to the House for further action. The House version of the bill passed earlier this year, yet only addresses sunscreen TEA.

Given the upcoming elections, reconciliation of the two chambers’ bills will begin once Congress returns during the lame duck session.
