Sun Protection Deals for Half Term

Sun Protection Deals for Half Term
It may feel like the kids have only just gone back to school but in a couple of weeksí time it will be half term!

If youíre planning to escape the onset of winter with a sunshine break, we have some great sun protection deals up for grabs, including free gifts and money-off on selected lines.

We are now back in stock of our large, 340ml cans of Techniblock SPF 50+ KIDS sunscreen.  Techniblock offers fragrance-free, non-greasy, quick and easy to apply protection that lasts for several hours.  With Techniblock, you wonít have to pin your young ones down and rub in thick, gooey creams that constantly need re-applying,  Our KIDS sunscreen is very long lasting and extremely water resistant, so you can be assured that it will keep little ones protected even whilst they are in the pool.  And because itís not sticky, sand wonít stick to it!

If you buy two large cans of KIDS sunscreen, youíll receive a 10-pack of Mossi-bands worth £10 absolutely free.  Colourful and waterproof, these bands are infused with natural oils such as Citronella, Lemongrass and Geranoil to keep the bugs away.  Just slip one over a wrist or ankle for protection against bites.
Going on safari or a hiking holiday and in need of sunscreen with repellent?  We now offer a sunscreen with Citronella for the daytime.  Techniblock SPF 40 Citronella comes in a handy, pocket size spray which is ideal to protect arms and legs.  And come evening, our South African manufactured insect repellent Peaceful Sleep will protect against midges, mosquitoes and flies from dusk until dawn.  Just £10 a tin or save up to £6 when you buy more than one can.
And,of course, we have a range of Techniblock sunscreen for mums and dads too!  Providing the same oil and fragrance-free protection in a light, aerosol spray, Techniblock sunscreen is available in SPF 30, SPF 40 and SPF 50+ 
If you want a lower SPF, we are pleased to introduce a new brand to the Techniblock website.  Coppertone is an American sunscreen that is hugely popular in the States because, just like Techniblock, it provides light, non-greasy but very long lasting protection in an SPF 15.  Coppertone Sport SPF 15 is breathable on the skin so it wonít clog pores, which can lead to breakouts and prickly heat.  Water resistant up to 80 minutes, it offers protection for up to 3 hours depending on skin type and is the perfect alternative, following the discontinuation of Techniblock SPF 15, for those who want a lower SPF.

Shop now for fast delivery, secure payment and great customer service!

"As a family of water addicts we are no strangers to world travel and hot climates. We have used sun screens in California, Brazil, Sri-Lanka, Hong Kong and in many other locations. My whole family agree that Techniblock products are the best we have ever used. One of our 8 year old twin girls has a sun allergy and has had to previously use steroid creams after being in the sun. However, ever since we started using Techniblock SPF50 Wet & Dry she has never had the problem. As a family we are pleased to endorse the Techniblock range".

Tackling a Prickly Problem - Techniblock Sun Protection

Tackling a Prickly Problem - Techniblock Sun Protection

When it comes to sun protection for sensitive skins, we think weíve got it covered!

Techniblock is a powerful, modern formula that offers advanced protection against harmful UV rays whilst allowing the skin to breathe.  Itís a light, transparent spray that goes on quickly and easily, doesnít have to be rubbed in, and lasts for several hours.

Traditional sun creams and lotions use emulsifiers to carry the UV filters that protect from sunburn; however Techniblock is completely free of oils and emulsifiers.  UV protection is delivered in a cooling, CFC-free ethanol-based aerosol spray that evaporates almost instantly on the skin, leaving behind just whatís needed to keep you protected in the sun.  The absence of emulsifiers means that Techniblock will not block pores or irritate even the most sensitive skin, which helps to prevent heat rash and prickly heat.  

Long Lasting, Water-Resistant Sun Protection

It all makes Techniblock extremely water-resistant, because oils and emulsifiers break down in water, therefore, prolonged swimming or water sports will make traditional sunscreens less effective whereas Techniblock will keep on protecting your skin, whether youíre in or on the water.

So, whatís not to love about a clear, non-greasy, oil and fragrance-free sun protection thatís really quick to apply and doesnít need constantly topping-up?  Forget sticky, gooey creams and lotions that leave your hands greasy, Techniblock is the sun protection for people who hate the hassle and mess of using a sunscreen but know that itís important to protect skin adequately when enjoying the sunshine. Aside from the very real and dangerous threat of skin cancer, something that now poses a higher risk to people in the UK than lung cancer, who wants to have their holiday spoiled by sunburn?  Itís painful, can make you feel very ill and often completely ruins the break that youíve looked forward to for so long!

Be sun smart this year and protect the skin youíre in with Techniblock sunscreen.

Heading for the slopes? Think Skis, Sunglasses, Sunscreen!

Heading for the slopes? Think Skis, Sunglasses, Sunscreen! If a snow-covered mountain top is your perfect holiday destination, then a skiing holiday will no doubt be high on your agenda at the moment.  With the ski season in full swing, and popular destinations such as France, Austria and Switzerland enjoying excellent skiing conditions, thousands of British snow fans are heading for the slopes.
Packing for any skiing holiday is always a bit of a challenge, with bulky snowsuits and warm clothes taking up lots of space in the suitcase.  When youíre trying to fit base layers, beanies, ski gloves, goggles and thermals in your case, itís easy to forget the basic essentials, such as sunscreen.
Many people donít even give sun protection a second thought when heading up a mountain and itís not surprising really.  We often donít associate a winter holiday with the need to protect our skin.  However, as any experienced skier will tell you, the sun can get very hot despite the sub-zero temperatures.
A bad case of sunburn can be extremely painful and definitely ruin a weekend or holiday in the snow. Even though temperatures may be extremely cold, the potential for sunburn can be very high.
The risk of sunburn is much greater in alpine regions than at sea level because the atmosphere is thinner and less pollution is present to filter out ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Snow can reflect almost 90% of UV radiation so UV rays are much more likely to burn areas such as your chin and nose.  And if you strip off layers at lunchtime to enjoy a bit of sunshine, youíll definitely need to think about sun protection.

Why Choose Techniblock Aerosol Sunscreen?

Techniblock has a great range of non-greasy, easy-to-apply aerosol sunscreens, anti-ageing face and lip protection.  Available in a small but perfectly formed 75ml can, this handy size fits easily into a pocket.  One spray will provide protection against sunburn for 5-6 hours, ensuring youíre covered from the top of the mountain to the bottom, and the SPF 50 Anti-Ageing face cream is light and non-greasy.  Techniblock is available in a variety of different sizes and SPFs and is delivered in a sealed, locking can, ensuring no messy leaks; plus the extended shelf-life means that what you don't use this season will still be perfectly fine to take on your summer holiday too!
Now, for a limited time only, we are offering all skiers and snowboarders a 10% discount on our special Ski Pack.

Future Investment and Development for Techniblock

I spent 10 days visiting family in South Africa in early November and it was fabulous to jet off from London just as the weather turned really cold here and soak up some sunshine in the very place where Techniblock is manufactured.

I also took the opportunity to meet with the partners at Technikon and hear all about their plans for the future.  In March 2017, Technikon will change it's name to Zyora following a change of ownership.  The new business has generated a significant investment to grow and develop over the next 7-10 years.  There are some exciting ideas for the Techniblock sunscreen range, which may include re-sizing all the large cans to 200ml with a twist lock-cap. We think this will be a much better size for Techniblock Ė less bulky to pack for a fortnightís holiday and although the trigger sprays are popular, they can be temperamental so the new twist lock-cap is preferred.  The tried and trusted lightweight Techniblock formula will be enhanced with anti-oxidants and natural extracts to help stimulate the DNA repair system in the skin, enhancing the skin's complexion and combating the formulation of wrinkles by maintaining skin elasticity.  
The handy 75ml sprays will continue to be produced, an ideal size for your beach or sports bag and perfect if youíre travelling abroad and taking hand luggage only. Other new products could include an SPF50 lip balm and a new, improved After Sun.  A fresh and updated logo and design is also on the cards.

Spending time in South Africa also gave me a chance to really put Techniblock sunscreen through its paces and reinforced our belief in the product we import.

If anyone should know a thing or two about protecting ourselves from the sun, itís the South Africans. The heat is intense and the sun is very harsh for nearly 10 months of the year, with temperatures reaching 40 degrees Celsius in the summer and only dropping to an average of 24 degrees Celsius in the winter.

Techniblockís non-greasy, odourless formula sprays on effortlessly and dries instantly to form an invisible barrier against harmful UVA and UVB rays. Itís the best sunscreen for sensitive skin prone to prickly heat because itís oil-free and lightweight, allowing pores to breathe. Itís also highly water resistant and offers excellent protection even when swimming or on the water.

I enjoyed a sunburn-free trip to South Africa and came back with a healthy glow. If you want first class sun protection, look no further than Techniblock sunscreen.
