Johnson & Johnson appeases watchdog by adopting joint New Zealand-Australian SPF standard

Johnson & Johnson will ensure all sun care products it sells on the Australia and New Zealand markets comply with the countries’ joint SPF standard, according to a report published by Stuff.

The move has been prompted in response to an investigation conducted by the Commerce Commission following a complaint from Consumer New Zealand, which alleged that J&J’s Neutrogena Sensitive Skin SPF60+ offered significantly less protection from UV rays than claimed.

The US manufacturer has now signed court enforceable undertakings to ensure that all Johnson & Johnson sunscreens meet the joint Australian/New Zealand standard.
