Company Announcement

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Jun 11, 2024 – Las Vegas, Nevada. On May 24, 2024, Suntegrity Skincare initiated a voluntarily recall of nine lots of Suntegrity Impeccable Skin Sunscreen Foundation (Multiple Shades) based on its discovery of a higher than acceptable microbiological mold count (Species: Aspergillus Sydowii) in some tubes of Lot 115BU that developed post-release and over time in a recent test. Out of an abundance of caution while investigating the situation, the company has decided to voluntarily recall these additional lots: 107IV, 107NU, 109NU, 117BU, 113SA, 114SA, 106BR, and 101MO even though all original and recent test results received have come back clear.

A topical product that is found to be contaminated with Aspergillus Sydowii could potentially cause an allergic skin reaction and related symptoms. It could also cause a primary fungal skin infection if used on open wounds or sunburned skin. If it is introduced into the eye, eye infections may occur. A primary skin infection due to Aspergillus species in an immunocompromised individual should be treated medically. No adverse event reports had been received at the time of the recall.

Suntegrity Impeccable Skin Sunscreen Foundation is labelled to help prevent sunburn and is packaged in 2 oz orange tubes. The product Lot number can be found on the back side of the tube at the top where the tube is sealed. See table below for a list of all lots and expiration dates. Product was distributed online by the company and nationwide via retail stores.
