This SPF 50 Active Performance Sunscreen has been designed for
outdoor enthusiasts, athletes and is the perfect skin protector when training,
enjoying water sports such as windsurfing, sailing and scuba diving. Just one

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. These filters also
stain light clothing but Techniblock’s anti-stain technology helps to minimise
the risk of staining*, caring for your clothes as much as your skin.
Also, oils and emulsifiers break down in water and, therefore, the lotion has
to 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 working.
The new Techniblock SPF 50 range is revolutionary and one of the first of
it's kind on the market. Designed to protect in even the harshest
environments, it is ideal for water sports because it can be applied directly
to wet skin. Recommended by the RYA (Royal Yachting Association) the SPF 50 Wet
and Dry is a firm favourite with boaters and sailors, as well as perfect for
water babies who love to keep cool in the pool.
Non-greasy, fragrance-free and breathable, Techniblock has anti-pore blocking
technology, making it very suitable for sensitive skin, particularly if you’re
prone to prickly heat. This irritating skin condition is aggravated
by high temperatures and rubbing thick and gooey creams into the skin just
makes it worse. According to our customers,Techniblock keeps
prickly heat at bay so you can enjoy the sun without worrying about nasty and
irritating skin rashes.
It also provides instant protection in one quick application, unlike some other
sunscreens where you have to wait for up to 45 minutes before going out in the
sun in order for the protection to take effect, so it’s easy and convenient to
use. The ideal solution for people who hate the fuss and bother of applying
sunscreen. It can also be applied to the head, thus reducing the threat of
Developed in South Africa, where they certainly know a thing or two
