Why use sun protection?
Sunscreen is an important part of your complete sun protection strategy as the benefits can be life changing. Using sunscreens regularly decreases the risks of developing skin cancers and helps prevent premature skin aging caused by the UV-rays that your skin is exposed to every single day.
Regular use of sunscreen reduces your overall UV exposure and lowers your risk of skin cancer and sun damage.
Who should use sun protection?
The need for sun protection applies to everyone! Men, women and children over 6 months of age should use sunscreen every day. This includes people who tan easily and those who don’t — remember, your skin is damaged by sun exposure over your lifetime, whether or not you burn.
Babies under the age of 6 months are the only exceptions; their skin is highly sensitive. The best way to keep your infants safe is to stay out of the sun by seeking shade and using sun-protective clothing.
When should you use sun protection?
Every day! The best practice is to apply 30 minutes prior to sun exposure to allow the sunscreen to absorb into your skin. For children we recommend to apply a second layer of sunscreen to secure that there are no missed areas and that the sun-sensitive skin of children get the optimal protection.
Even though P20 is developed to stay longer on the skin, we still recommend to reapply the product after excessive sweating or towel drying to make sure that you are fully protected from the sun throughout the day.
What type of sunscreen should you use?
We believe that you get the best protection from a sunscreen that delivers a high-performance protection and a texture that you would want to apply to your skin every day. In our unique sunscreen formulations we have developed our product ranges to deliver the best in sun protection and give you the option to choose from both our creams and ethanol-based (clear) sunscreens. Our products have been tested and is proven to deliver on all the parameters that we list on the products. At the same time our formualtions have been tested in user studies to make sure that our formulations also meets the requirements of the consumers when it comes to the sensorial feel of the product in use on your skin. The sum of it all is a unique sunscreen that deliveres the best product and ensures that our consumers will want to apply and reapply P20 today, tomorrow and in the future ahead.
All active ingredients in sunscreen are chemically derived this applies to both mineral and chemical UV-filters. We use chemicals filters in our sun protection, which are non greasy, non sticky and doesn’t leave a white cast on the skin. The chemical filters protect the skin from UVA and UVB rays by being absorbed into the skin whereas the mineral filters stays like a film on the skin. When something is chemically produced it means that it is controlled, which makes it possible for us to have 100% control of the ingredients in our products and making sure that we offer the best prodtection for you and your family.
Are sunscreens safe?
Yes! A recent study highlighted the fact that the benefits of using sunscreen by far exceeds the possible negative effects that the UV-filters can have on your skin. In fact the study underlined that there is no scientific evidence that the UV filters in sunscreen can have a harmful effect*. What we know to be the biggest thread when talking about sunscreen is the fact that we know consumers are forgetting to include sunscreen in their daily routine and that they are not using enough sunscreen which leaves them with a sun protection that is significantly lower than what they are expecting. So we still have a long way to go in making sure that we all stay sun-safe and protect our skin the most optimal way possible.
