Although some of the minerals I use in my makeup naturally contain SPF properties, according to U.S. laws, makeup manufacturers cannot market them with sun-protection claims. Such products must comply with the requirements for both cosmetics and drugs, and it puts the products into another classification under the law that I am not qualified to produce (drugs). The same is true of claims of acne curing, wrinkle erasing, etc.
From the FDA:
Claims stated on the product labeling, in advertising, on the Internet, or in other promotional materials. Certain claims may cause a product to be considered a drug, even if the product is marketed as if it were a cosmetic. Such claims establish the product as a drug because the intended use is to treat or prevent disease or otherwise affect the structure or functions of the human body. Some examples are claims that products will restore hair growth, reduce cellulite, treat varicose veins, or revitalize cells.
Consumer perception, which may be established through the product's reputation. This means asking why the consumer is buying it and what the consumer expects it to do.
Ingredients that may cause a product to be considered a drug because they have a well known use to the public and industry. For example, fluoride in toothpaste. This principle also holds true for essential oils in fragrance products. A fragrance marketed for promoting attractiveness is a cosmetic. But a fragrance marketed with certain 'aromatherapy' claims, such as assertions that the scent will help the consumer sleep or quit smoking,and moisturizers and makeup marketed with sun-protection claims meets the definition of a drug because of its intended use.
FDA does not have a pre-market approval system for cosmetic products or ingredients, with the important exception of color additives. Drugs, however, are subject to pre-market FDA approval. 
What this means is any manufacturer of cosmetics that makes certain claims about their products, up to and including sun protection, wrinkle reduction, acne cures, detoxification, cell repairation, healing properties and so forth is then required by law to comply with all the rules, regulations, restrictions, certifications and laws that drug manufacturers are.
Generally speaking, the intended use of a product is determined by claims made on the product label, in collateral labeling, and in other promotional materials such as advertising. Information on the company's Internet site is also considered when evaluating intended use. Specific and implied drug or device claims are not appropriate for products marketed solely as cosmetics.
