A Sunscreen plays a crucial role in any skincare routine due to its ability to protect the skin from the harmful effects of ultraviolet (UV) radiation. UV radiation, specifically UVA (ageing) and UVB (Burning) rays, emitted by the sun can penetrate the skin and cause various damaging effects, including sunburn, premature ageing, and an increased risk of skin cancer. Applying sunscreen helps to create a barrier between the skin and these harmful rays, minimising the damage they can cause.

Sunscreen FAQs

When striving for healthy skin, the perfect skincare routine is paramount. Essential steps such as protection from UV, Pollution and Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) are crucial for skin health and vitality and our Sol-Protect sunscreens ensure to enhance your daily skincare routine. Whether you prefer the tinted or un-tinted version, our Sol-Protect Sunscreens offer premium protection against harmful UV rays, Electromagnetic Radiation and High Energy Visible Light (HEVL ) safeguarding your skin while providing a flawless finish.

How does Sunscreen work?

First and foremost, sunscreen helps prevent sunburn, which occurs when the skin is exposed to excessive UVB radiation. Sunburn not only causes discomfort and pain but also damages the outer layer of the skin, leading to peeling, redness, and inflammation. By applying sunscreen regularly, individuals can significantly reduce their risk of experiencing sunburn, thus maintaining the health and integrity of their skin.

Furthermore, sunscreen aids in preventing premature ageing caused by UV radiation. Day to Day exposure to the sun's UV rays can accelerate the ageing process of the skin leading to the development of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and sagging skin. This occurs due to the breakdown of collagen and elastin fibers in the skin, which are essential for maintaining its firmness and elasticity. By wearing sunscreen daily, individuals can help preserve the youthful appearance of their skin and minimise the visible signs of ageing over time.

In addition to its cosmetic benefits, sunscreen also plays a crucial role in reducing the risk of skin cancer. Exposure to UV radiation is a significant risk factor for skin cancer, including melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma. By applying sunscreen with a high sun protection factor (SPF) regularly, you can significantly lower the chances of developing these potentially life-threatening conditions. Incorporating sunscreen into a daily skincare routine is essential for maintaining overall skin health and reducing the risk of sun-induced skin damage and diseases.

What does SPF mean in a sunscreen?

SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. It's a measure of how well a sunscreen protects the skin from the ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun. Specifically, it indicates how long it will take for UVB rays to redden the skin when using the sunscreen compared to how long it would take without any sunscreen.

How is SPF calculated?

SPF is calculated based on laboratory testing where volunteers are exposed to UV radiation, both with and without sunscreen. The SPF value is determined by comparing the amount of UV radiation needed to cause sunburn on skin protected by sunscreen to the amount needed to cause sunburn on unprotected skin.

Can you explain what the SPF number means?

Absolutely. The SPF number represents the level of protection the sunscreen offers against UVB rays. For example, SPF 30 means that it would take 30 times longer for the skin to burn with the sunscreen applied compared to without it. So, if it usually takes 10 minutes for your skin to burn without sunscreen, it would take approximately 300 minutes (10 minutes x 30) for your skin to burn with SPF 30 sunscreen properly applied.

Does a higher SPF number mean better protection?

Generally, yes. A higher SPF number indicates more protection against UVB rays. However, it's essential to note that SPF does not linearly correlate with the level of protection. For instance, SPF 30 blocks about 97% of UVB rays, while SPF 50 blocks about 98%. The difference in protection becomes more marginal as the SPF number increases beyond 50.

Is SPF the only factor to consider when choosing a sunscreen?

No, SPF is not the only factor to consider. It's also crucial to look for a sunscreen labeled as broad-spectrum which means it protects against both UVA and UVB rays. Additionally, factors other UV quenching ingredients and antioxidants should also be considered when choosing a sunscreen for optimal protection.

Why did you choose a SPF30 for your sunscreen formulation?

SPF30 offers a good balance between protection and wearability for everyday use. It provides sufficient protection against harmful UVB rays, which are primarily responsible for causing sunburn and skin damage. Additionally, SPF30 allows for a reasonable amount of sun exposure, which is important for the synthesis of Vitamin D in the skin. It's also comfortable to wear on a daily basis, as higher SPF levels can sometimes feel heavy or greasy on the skin, potentially discouraging regular use.

We also include other actives in our sunscreen formulation to significantly enhance the UV protection, as an example Celligent® has the ability to prevent DNA damage, a crucial aspect of UV protection. The inclusion of ethyl ferulate from rice and carnosic acid from rosemary in Celligent® provides potent antioxidant properties, which effectively neutralise free radicals generated by UV exposure.
