When it comes to first class protection for sports people, Techniblock Sunscreen is top of the league!
Whether you're playing it or watching it, if you're a sports fan you will undoubtedly spend many hours outdoors in the sun. Regardless of whether it's home or abroad, it's important to wear sun protection if you're a keen player of sport or follow a team. We don't often associate wearing sun protection with this type of activity and even if we do, it's often something that is ignored because applying and wearing sun cream is often messy and uncomfortable.
However, Techniblock is very different from the traditional sunscreens you find in shops throughout the UK. It is a clear, lightweight and instantly drying aerosol spray that provides non-greasy, quick and easy-to-apply protection against harmful and damaging UV rays. Techniblock is oil and fragrance-free, sweat and water resistant, and breathable. The formula contains stablilisers to boost performance and anti-oxidants to protect and moisturise the skin. The absence of oils and emulsifiers means this modern sunscreen is particularly suitable for sensitive skin prone to prickly heat.
So whether you're whizzing along on a bike, whipping up a spray on the water or strolling along on the golf course, Techniblock offers high quality, fuss-free protection for every skin type.
Available in SPF 30,SPF 40, SPF 50 and a Children's Range, as well as an Anti-Ageing Face Creme and Lip Balm.
WATER SPORTS SUN PROTECTION
Whether you're in the water or on the water, a long-lasting, water-resistant sunscreen should be in every boater's kit bag. Techniblock has real staying power and has been specifically designed for use in harsh environments, providing a tough and enduring protection for several hours. The unique SPF 50 Wet & Dry sunscreen is perfect for water enthusiasts because it can be applied to both wet and dry skin, ensuring complete all over protection. It's a firm favourite with Olympian Paracanoeist Rob Oliver.
New for 2020, Techniblock has updated the formula of the Wet & Dry, using the very latest sunscreen technology, anti-blocking and anti-stain ingredients. It is also free from Oxybenzone and Octinoxate which means it is all environmental kind to our oceans and coral reefs.
Techniblock is also an RYA Reward Partner - visit the RYA's Members Benefit Page for details on available discounts.
GOLF SUN PROTECTION
50+ million people a year play golf and there are over 35,000 different courses to choose from around the world. With the average round taking 4-5 hours, that's a staggering 720 million hours out in the open air. It's no wonder that the PGA (Professional Golfers' Association) partnered with us to help promote sun safety on the golf course.
SKI-ING SUN PROTECTION
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.
While sunburn is initially painful and uncomfortable it can also cause long term damage such as wrinkling, blotchiness, premature ageing and skin cancer. Don't get caught out, make sure you have a small can of Techniblock to hand when heading off to the slopes.
CYCLING SUN PROTECTION
Cycling is very much THE sport of the moment, thanks to Bradley Wiggins and Chris Frome, and it's great fun for racing enthisasts, mountain bikers and families alike. However, a 3 hour bike ride, even in cloudy weather, will expose a cyclist to 18 times the recommend levels of UV without protection.
In addition to that little factoid, the recent fabric technology that is used in cycling clothing to offer wicking action and loose weaves may be very comfortable to wear but unfortunately, the very fibers that let heat and moisture out are pretty good at letting sun in. Combine a loose weave with sweat and the jersey and shorts you wear may have a SPF factor as low as 5. That adds up to a lot of sun over the course of a 40-mile ride.
