Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) announces completion of the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) compliant tests on human subjects to evaluate the effectiveness of Urban Juve’s proprietary sunscreen formula by determining a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) on human skin of 31.

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, SPF 30 product blocks 97% of UVB rays. Both the American Academy of Dermatology and the Canadian Dermatology Association advise using a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.  Urban Juve’s sunscreen formula also passed the FDA broad spectrum test.  Sunscreen products that pass the FDA broad spectrum test are allowed to be labeled as “Broad Spectrum”, meaning they protect against both UVA and UVB rays.  According to the FDA, skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States. Current estimates are that one in five Americans are at risk of developing skin cancer in their lifetime. Exposure to natural and artificial ultraviolet (UV) light has a direct impact on a person’s risk of developing skin cancer — despite age or skin type.


Yield Growth subsidiary Urban Juve’s sunscreen contains natural ingredients and is free of petrochemicals, phthalates, propylene glycol, sulfates and parabens. Yield Growth subsidiary UJ Topicals has the rights to infuse this sunscreen formula with Cannabidiol (CBD).

According to Statista, the global sun care market value was approximately $15.83 billion U.S. dollars in 2015, and is forecasted to reach $24.91 billion by 2024.

The SPF evaluation for the Urban Juve sunscreen formula was completed by a fully independent testing facility at a laboratory in New York City, New York, USA, in compliance with FDA rules and regulations.
