We take it with us wherever we go. It holds us together so to speak, protects our bodies, regulates our temperature and allows us to experience our world through touch - our skin is vital, yet we often neglect it, as we take it for granted. The truth of the matter is that it needs our protection, not just on our annual two week holiday, but all year round.
Recent research has found a greater link between UVA exposure and the onset of malignant melanoma - the least understood type of skin cancer. This has highlighted a need for more effective UVA protection to be included in sunscreen formulations.
We recommend choosing a sunscreen with UVA and UVB protection and an SPF of at least 30, and preferably SPF 40 or 50 for fair to very fair skin. Most skin cancers are caused by over-exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun or sunbeds.
Everyone wants to enjoy the sun, but it has to be enjoyed safely. There is an enormous array of sun protection lotions and creams on the shelves in UK stores, but with so much choice on offer, it can prove difficult to decide which sun protection to buy.
Techniblock Aerosol Sunscreen is a South-African manufactured sun protection that is sold in the UK and Europe solely by Techniblock Suncare Ltd. It is only available online through the techniblock.co.uk website, and through our Amazon MarketPlace.
Europe addressed the problem of inferior sunscreens by introducing stringent COLIPA Standards and these standards have been adopted by CANSA (Cancer Association of South Africa) to become the standard for any sunscreen wishing to qualify for CANSA approval. CANSA took the initiative to have 35 sunscreens tested according to the European COLIPA Standards, brands such as Nivea, Ambre Solaire and Techniblock were amongst those tested.
Techniblock has been awarded CANSA’s approved seal of recognition and carries CANSA’s SunSmart logo. This seal of recognition is given to products that offer protection against natural environmental elements that may lead to cancer, elements such as solar radiation, water quality and air pollution. So, not only is this sunscreen highly effective at protecting the skin against the damaging and harmful effects of the sun, it is also a barrier against the everyday elements of life that are absorbed through the skin.
But, apart from the science stuff, there is something else truly unique about Techniblock. It is one of the easiest sunscreens to wear. Forget sticky, heavy-weight sunscreen that takes ages to absorb, Techniblock is a clear, non-greasy spray that is instantly absorbed, highly water resistant, fragrance-free and lasts for hours. Because it doesn’t contain oils or emulsifiers, there is no need to constantly reapply every five minutes, one application of Techniblock Sun Spray SPF50+ will provide over 6 hours protection. Just spray and go, protection made simple!
So, be sun smart, be sun savvy, if you are heading off to the sunshine, make the sun smart choice and order today.
