INGREDIENT INTRODUCTION – Sunscreen with Moisturiser

October 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.

SunSense Face range has a formulation for every facial suncare need. All offer the benefits of SPF 30+ broad spectrum sun protection with moisturisers, and are tailored to suit the specific needs of individual skin types.
