Following popular demand from our customers, we are pleased to confirm that we are now stocking a wider range of Peaceful Sleep products.

Peaceful Sleep is the number one, best-selling insect repellent in South Africa,

and is now available via the Techniblock website for delivery within the UK and some European countries (see website for details).

Trusted by safari rangers, who spend all day, every day in the bush, this clean, clear repellent is proven to deter midges, mosquitoes, flies, ticks and fleas.

Available in a light, but highly effective, aerosol spray that goes on easily and doesnít leave a sticky residue, which is great for sensitive and irritated skin, as well as in stick format to target specific areas such as the ears, wrists, ankles and neck.

Containing 15% DEET as well as natural plant-based oils such as lemongrass and citronella, itís not unpleasant to use and one application will protect against irritating and painful bites for up to 8 hours.

The spray is also available in a handy, 85ml can making it ideal for hand-luggage travel only. Check out our Weekend Travel packs, containing a 75ml sunscreen for the face and body, a lip balm and an 85ml can of Peaceful Sleep.

We have also introduced a new, kid-friendly Family Care repellent in stick format, which is suitable for babies from 6 months and children up to 12 years. The Peaceful Sleep Family Care repellent stick is DEET-free, but equally as effective at keeping the bugs at bay. Combine this with one of our citronella-infused Anti-Mosquito bands and your child will be bite-free and happy.

And last, but not least, if you are looking for a sunscreen and a natural insect-repellent in one, then try Techniblockís SPF 40 spray infused with citronella. It comes in the handy, 75ml size that so many of our customers love so itís perfect for a weekend away or popping in a pocket or handbag for protection on the go from sunburn and bites.

Just Spray and Sail with Techniblock Sunscreen

Just Spray and Sail with Techniblock Sunscreen A good quality,

water-resistant sunscreen is vital for water sports

, whether you are on the water kayaking, sailing, paddle boarding or windsurfing, or in the water enjoying diving, snorkeling or swimming.

The main base for many of the more traditional sun lotions and creams available today are oils and emulsifiers; these ingredients are used to encapsulate the UV filters which, when applied to the skin, tend to leave behind a greasy residue, especially with a high factor protection. The higher the SPF, the more UV filters in the formula, and this often makes them sticky and uncomfortable to apply and wear.  Also, oils and emulsifiers break down in water and, therefore, the lotion must be re-applied frequently, particularly after swimming.

Techniblock is different. UV filters are encapsulated in an ethanol-based spray that evaporates on contact to leave a

transparent but effective and very water-resistant UV barrier

. Even while swimming, Techniblock keeps on working to protect so you can enjoy the water for longer, safe in the knowledge that the powerful, modern formula will keep you sunburn-free.

Techniblock SPF 50 Wet & Dry is particularly suitable for sailing because it can be applied to wet or dry skin for maximum protection at all times

and our SPF 50+ sunscreen offers very high protection for 8+ hours, even in the harshest of environments.
It wonít run in to eyes and sting and sand wonít stick to it. The spray formula works at any angle, which allows for easy application and protection is instant.

Techniblock has teamed up with RS Sailing in support of the upcoming RS Games due to be held in Weymouth in August and there will be an opportunity for competitors and visitors to sample the Techniblock suncare range throughout the Games.  Visit the pop-up shop in the Sailorís Hub and enjoy discounted prices or order online at and enjoy 10% off your first order with the discount code RSGAMES.

Techniblock is also an RYA Reward Partner and RYA members benefit from an exclusive discount too.  Visit the Members Benefit page for details.

Don't let prickly heat spoil your summer

Don't let prickly heat spoil your summer
Summer is well and truly here and it's set to stay, at least for the next couple of weeks! 
Everyone knows how important sunscreen is when the temperature starts to rise but, equally, many people hate using sun protection.  
If thick, greasy and difficult to rub in sun creams are making you hot, sticky and uncomfortable, try something completely different.  Techniblock Aerosol Sunscreen is a lightweight but powerful sun protection thatís resistant to water and perspiration, providing an almost transparent but extremely effective barrier against harmful UV rays.
Forget itchy, irritated and sunburnt skin, Techniblockís high quality, UVA/UVB formula allows skin to breathe freely and doesnít contain any oils, emulsifiers, colourants or perfume.  This makes is perfect for sun-sensitive skin thatís prone to prickly heat rash and, according to our customers, is the best solution to prevent symptoms so you can enjoy the sun.

Ultra-dry, instantly absorbed and super-quick to apply, this spray sunscreen works at any angle so itís easy to "do it yourselfĒ on hard-to-reach parts of the body.  Non-sticky and very resistant to water and perspiration, itís great for keeping you cool during the hottest part of the day. 
Recommended by the Royal Yachting Association, Techniblock's SPF Wet & Dry spray is brilliant for enjoying water sports such as sailing, yachting, snorkeling, windsurfing and canoeing.  It's a firm favourite with the GB ParaCanoe team and it's also great for children who like to sit and splash in the pool because you can top up without drying off.

A range of sizes are available in SPF 30, SPF 40 and SPF 50+ High Protection, including a handy 75ml spray that's ideal for hand-luggage only travel or for popping in your bag for instant protection on the go.  Our High Protection Children's range will keep kids safe in the sun, and one application will last them for the duration of the school day so they can enjoy play times without worrying about sunburn.

Sun Protection and the 5-Star Rating

Sun Protection and the 5-Star Rating
The 5-star rating was introduced by Boots as part of a marketing initiative.  Sun care companies that wish to sell their products in Boots outlets, or adopt the 5-star rating, have to pay a license fee to Boots.  However, it is only a UK rating system; it is not recognised in Europe or globally, nor is it a part of any EU regulations or industry standard testing for protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays.

Over the years, many people and even insitutions like the NHS have come to rely upon this rating system as an indication of how well a sunscreen will protect because it has been extremely well marketed by Boots as a bench mark for suncare products.  In truth, it can be misleading.  Sunscreens like Hawaiian Tropic, Banana Boat and even Boots' own brand Soltan, all failed a Which? survey last year after testing revealed that they did not provide the level of SPF they claimed to, and yet all these products carry a 5-star rating.

The most important symbol to look for on any sunscreen is the UVA/UVB one.  Only sun protection with these symbols have passed stringent testing and conform to the strict industry standards demanded by the European Union.

Techniblock does not display a star rating system because it is manufactured in South Africa.  However, it does display the UVA/UVB symbol and the CANSA SunSmart Choice logo.  You'll find both these symbols on every can of Techniblock.

Requirements for CANSAís Seal of Recognition

CANSAís Seal of Recognition (CSOR) is placed on products that offer protection against natural environmental elements that may lead to cancer, such as solar radiation.  Techniblock is recommended by CANSA which confirms that it adheres to the new COLIPA standards and / or SANS 1557:2013 Edition 3.2 (incorporating the new ISO standards) and bear the CANSA SunSmart Choice Seal (CSSS)

Products that pass the stringent protection requirements, qualify for the CANSA Seal of Recognition, namely the CANSA SunSmart Choice Seal (CSSS).

CANSA recommends chosing a sunscreen with both UVA and UVB protection and an SPF of at least 30 to 50.
