Techniblock SPF15 Discontinued
11 Oct 2016
We regret to announce that the manufacturers of Techniblock have decided to discontinue their Techniblock SPF15 sun protection spray.
There is no demand for such a low SPF in South Africa and even here in the UK the majority of Techniblock customers prefer to use the higher factors - SPF 30, SPF 40 and SPF 50+ Techniblock is primarily a high protection brand and higher SPFs protect better and last longer, making them much better value for money.
There is a very limited number of Techniblock SPF 15 left in stock and once these are gone, we will be unable to get any more. We are the ONLY distributor of Techniblock products in the UK and Europe and there is no possibility of sourcing elsewhere.
If you have previously purchased Techniblock SPF 15, we recommend that you upgrade to Techniblock SPF 30. It offers the same non-greasy, easy to apply, water resistant protection and will protect for longer than the SPF 15, which should be re-applied every 2-3 hours.
Upgrading to a higher SPF does NOT double the protection and block out the sun more thoroughly. A higher SPF does NOT mean you will not tan! There is no such thing as a complete block - an SPF (Sun Protection Factor) outlines the difference as to how long unprotected skin will take to burn compared to skin protected with a sun protection product.
On average, it takes roughly ten minutes to begin to show the signs of sunburn so wearing a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 offers 15 x 10 minutes protection (or 2-3 hours) before it would be necessary to re-apply. Therefore, a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 will protection for up to 5 hours and an SPF 40 prevents sunburn for up to 6 hours. An SPF 15 filters out 93% of UVB radiation but a SPF 30 filters out 97% providing a safer way to enjoy the sun.
The benefit of higher SPFs is that a person can be exposed to the sun for a longer period of time before having to re-apply sunscreen, although this is not true of all high protection products when they come in to contact with water. Many creams and lotions contain oils and emulsifiers, which wash off with prolonged contact with water, and of course these ingredients also block pores, irritating sensitive skins prone to prickly heat. This is where Techniblock has a great advantage over other sunscreens. The absence of oils and emulsifiers creates a longer lasting, highly water resistant and ultra dry but invisible barrier against harmful UV rays.
SPF 30 is available in 340ml, 150ml and 75ml, giving you more choice. Buy 2 or more cans and take advantage of discounted offers and free products.
