£19.00

Environ RAD sunscreen is a revolutionary sun protection cream. The sun filters and sun reflectors contained in this product provide an of SPF 15 while natural antioxidants increase sun protection and fight free-radicals.

This product is highly recommended for all skin types and is suitable for all ages, including babies.

Given its skin nourishing credentials, it’s no surprise that vitamin A helps defend against UV damage. “The most powerful sun-protective molecule is the Retinyl Palmitate form of Vitamin A, which in adequate doses, can have a photo-protective effect of SPF20 and gives additional protection against UVA”, says Dr Fernandes.

Benefits:

  • Provides protection from both UVA and UVB radiation.
  • Contains absorbent sun filters, namely Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane (UV-A) and, Octyl Methoxycinnamate (UV-B), which safely absorb part of the sun’s radiation.
  • Titanium Oxide, reflects the sun’s radiation, and is more effective than chemical absorption.
  • Contains antioxidants beta-carotene, vitamin C and E to combat the effects of the sun and pollution on the skin. These antioxidants help minimise and neutralise the damage of UV rays that penetrate the sunscreens and filters, and are useful even after sunburn.
  • This product can also be used as an after-sun treatment for sunburn.
  • Fragrance and preservative free

The numbering system on SPF can be misleading. It’s logical to assume that SPF 30 provides twice the protection of SPF 15, but it actually only blocks 4% more rays (SPF 15 blocks 93%) and contains a much greater level of potentially harmful chemicals. Many scientists do not recommend anything stronger than SPF 15- 20 because there is minimal advantage from the higher SPFs. High SPFs give a false sense of security, which means people reapply them less frequently and spend longer in the sun, resulting in skin damage.

It’s important to remember that SPF only indicates protection from UVB rays, which cause burning, and not UVA which cause photo-ageing so using a broad spectrum cream which protects against both is key.

To achieve superior protection against the sun, antioxidants need to be incorporated into your skincare regime. Eliminating free radicals generated in the skin from UV exposure, minimising the damaging effects they have on DNA.

Apply an antioxidant sunscreen such as Environ’s RAD.  Daily use is essential, as studies indicate that even on cloudy days 80% of radiation from UVA rays breaks through.
