The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) announces that its proprietary sunscreen formula has passed the United States Federal Drug Agency (FDA) broad spectrum test which provides a clinical vitro measurement to confirm the ability of the product to perform against both ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 30.

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.  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.


Yield Growth subsidiary Urban Juve’s sunscreen contains mainly 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.

Urban Juve has completed initial SPF testing for its upcoming sunscreen product at a SPF testing laboratory that is FDA-qualified in compliance with regulations and standards for sunscreen performance testing. In addition, using human subjects, the test protocol is being utilized to determine SPF effectiveness and performance. Initial results from testing confirms an SPF factor of 30 for the Urban Juve sunscreen formulation. The testing procedure was conducted in conformance with FDA requirements for sunscreen product performance testing.  The testing laboratory is now following a standard test protocol which prescribes 10 human subjects and the goal of the test is to quantitatively measure SPF protection value of the product. The lab has completed testing with 2 of 10 subjects. The results from the remaining 8 subjects will be available in early 2019.

All products developed for over-the-counter sales in the U.S. and claiming SPF values are regulated by the FDA.  Urban Juve intends to launch its sunscreen product in the U.S. in 2019.
