With one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world, we need to look at new and better ways to protect our skin from the damaging rays of the sun.
Sunlight contains UVA and UVB radiation that may damge the skin. UVB mainly affects the outer layer of he skin and is the principle cause of sunburn. UVA is more penetrating and causes damage below the skin surface.
Actinica protects from both UVA and UVB rays. It contains photostable broad spectrum filters and is water resistant for upto 4 hours. Actinica also has hydrating properties for better skin conditioning. The absense of fragrance and conventional PEG emulsifiers ensures that the lotion is well tolerated, so that it can even be used on highly sensitive skins
Octyl methoxylcinnamate 7.5%, Isoamyl methoxycinnamate 7.5%, Methylene bis-benzotriazoyl tetramethylbutylphenol 3.0%,Octyl triazone 5.0%, Bemotrizinol 5.0%, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane 2.5%. Contains: Hydroxybenzonates.
Apply to clean, dry skin at least 20 minutes before going into the sunlight. Apply before using your normal cosmetics or moisturisers and allow a few minutes for the sunscreen to be absorbed by your skin. Re-apply at regular intervals and after swimming, excessive sweating or towel drying.
