ENJOY THE SUN SAFELY AND AVOID SUNBURN
We humans need sunlight to live. But too much of it can be harmful, causing sunburn and triggering early signs of skin aging. An intelligent UV Filter System combined with other active ingredients provides the skin with intense protection and nourishing care.
Reliable sun protection is important for all skin types. It is not just about avoiding sunburn caused by UVB radiation, but also about preventing premature skin aging caused by UVA radiation. It is thus critical to protect the skin from both the short-wave UVB and the long-wave UVA radiation. While the high-energy UVB rays are responsible for producing sunburn, the long-wave UVA rays can trigger sun allergy and damage the collagen fibers, which causes the skin to lose elasticity and leads to early wrinkling.
Sunscreen products need an intelligent UV filter system to protect the skin from both UVA and UVB rays. The sun protection factor (SPF), though, only indicates the protection from UVB rays. Whether a cream offers protection against UVA radiation as well, needs to be explicitly mentioned on the label of the product. The SPF ultimately tells you how much longer you can stay in the sun without burning, compared to no sunscreen use. For example, if someone with fair skin can stay in the sun for 5 minutes without sunscreen, an SPF 30 sun cream would allow him to stay in the sun for 30 times as long, which is 150 minutes or 2,5 hours. An SPF of 50 would give him or her more than 4 hours. Please note: The clock starts running as soon as you apply the sun protection, and not just when you expose your skin to the sun.
