INGREDIENT INTRODUCTION – Sunscreen with MoisturiserOctober 12, 2012
Dr Kerryn Greive PhD, Scientific Affairs Manager at Ego Pharmaceuticals says: “At least 90% of premature skin ageing may be attributed to UV radiation.1 If you want to look younger for longer, you need to wear sun protection all the time. Sun damage builds up over our lifetime, so it is important that sun protection be worn on a daily basis, and not just when you go to the beach.”
“As we are all very time-poor, having a two-in-one product is really useful. Also by adding a moisturiser to an SPF 30+ sunscreen, one can reduce the incidence of ‘self-compounding‘. This can happen when a moisturiser is put on first and then a sunscreen is applied. If each layer is not allowed to dry properly, with a 10 to 15 minute gap between applications, one tends to get the ingredients mixing on the skin – and that can damage the SPF.” said Dr Kerryn Greive.
