Frequently asked questions about SUNSKIN products.

SUNSKIN SUNSCREEN

Yes, SPF means it only protects against UVB (Burning Rays). You need sunscreen to protect against UVA (Ageing).

SUN SKIN sunscreens consist of Organic filters which are carbon-based molecules. It absorbs the UV-Rays, oscillates & neutralizes the rays

It means the time you can spend in the sun. Doesn’t mean % or minutes. Example: Take a SPF50. If it takes your skin 10 minutes in the sun to burn, you multiply it with the SPF 50 = 500 minutes safe in the sun (8 hours). On condition you don’t wipe, sweat or swim. If so, you have to REAPPLY!!

We suggest that babies younger than 6 months, are not exposed to UV, since their melanocytes are not fully developed. Keep them in the shades & cover them with clothing. If in the sun, do sunscreen patch test and rather apply sunscreen than NO protection.
