New Zealand Suncare Initiative

The New Zealand Suncare Initiative is a special interest group established by Cosmetics New Zealand in 2021 to motivate Kiwis to be sun safe, by bringing balance and dimension to the narrative around sunscreen products and sun safety behaviour.

Members of the New Zealand Suncare Initiative span international and local sunscreen brands united in championing safe sunscreen development and use in New Zealand.

Local independent experts in formulation development, product testing, skin cancer prevention and the regulatory environment are also aligned with the Initiative to embody a diverse range of perspectives.
