Summer may be ending, but that doesn't mean your sunscreen and sun protection gear should go into hibernation. While it is true that the sun's harmful UVA and UVB rays are greater during the summer, UV light is actually present whenever you don't need a flashlight. Furthermore, long wavelength/deeper penetrating UVA rays, which are mainly responsible for photoaging, are only slightly diminished during the winter months.
The oceans are rich in organisms with beneficial qualities for our skin. Ocean Elements™ marine-based skin care harnesses the power of five naturally occurring marine ingredients with exceptional protective, hydrating and restorative qualities. These are combined with natural emollients and non-chemical sun protection to protect, moisturize and repair your skin.
The ability of clothing to protect the skin from ultraviolet damage is not a new idea. What is new is the intentional creation of fabrics and designs specifically for sun protective clothing. Thread count, weave, now in light weight synthetics for summer, using polyester, nylon, spandex, and polypropylene allow the creation of light colored, thin shirts and pants. And some manufacturers may add UV blocking ingredients at the time of manufacture to increase the blocking ability.
Gentle enough for sensitive skin, Ocean Elements™ hydrating skin care contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatories alleviate irritation and redness while non-nano mineral sunscreens provide broad spectrum SPF 30 protection. The sheer formulation delivers superior hydration and serious sun protection that looks and feels great by itself or under makeup.
