Does Sunscreen Expire?

Sunscreen is an essential item during the summer months but does it expire?
It is true that sunscreen expires but fortunately for everyone it has a very long shelf life.
The Food and Drug Administration requires sunscreen to stay effective for three years.
As an added bonus, opening a bottle of sunscreen doesn’t make it expire any faster once it's stored at room temperature.
However, manufacturers are not required to date their products so make sure to write the date on the bottle when you buy it.
Also, regardless of how long you have your sunscreen for you should throw it out if it starts to smell funny or has changed color.
