American Academy of Dermatology

American Academy of Dermatology When you are shopping for sun protection products you may want to look for the American Academy of Dermatology AAD Seal of Recognition®.  Products are chosen based on a stringent set of evidence-based criteria set by the Academy along FDA guidelines and verified by a panel of dermatologists and an independent scientist.

This public health program was instituted to:

  1. Educate the public regarding the relationship of excessive sun exposure and skin cancer
  2. Present a reliable method for the public to be confident in their choice of sunscreen products in the form of lotions, cosmetics, UV clothing, hats, UV blocking sunglasses, cabanas, laundry additives and window film/tints.

An offshoot of this program is the Skin Cancer Awareness: Intervention Plan for Tomorrow or the SCRIPT Plan.  Funded by proceeds from the AAD Seal of Recognition® program, public education programs that will be instituted are:

  • Shade Structure Grant Program - Make available funds for the purchase of permanent shade structures for such entities as non-profit organizations and schools.  A partner in this program is Johnson & Johnson Consumer Product Company
  • Public screenings - Free skin cancer screenings
  • Advocacy - Federal and state legislation to regulate indoor tanning
  • Sun safety - Printed materials for public education
  • Advertising - Provide advertising funds and public service advertising
  • Website - SkinCancer.net 

All these programs have the common goal to reduce the death toll from skin cancer in the next 10 years and the incidence of skin cancer in the next 30 years.
