Shade All-Natural Sunscreen is 100% natural, effective and suitable for all ages and skin types.
How To Use:
Apply generously at least 15 minutes before exposure to the sun, and then reapply regularly every 2 - 3 hours or after exposure to water or after sweating. If it’s cold and quite firm, rub it vigorously with warm fingertips to make it softer, or scoop some out of the tin and warm it between your hands.
'Applying generously' means you need approximately a teaspoon for an adult face, and a shotglass full for an adult body.
How does SPF actually work?
SPF25 means that the protection is 96% - that also means that 4% of rays are still reaching the skin. The '25' means that you are approximately protected for 25 times the length of time it would normally take you to burn, under the same environmental conditions, without any protection.
Unlike many chemical sunscreens, Shade™ does not contain burn inhibitors which switch off the burning sensation. If you feel you are beginning burn, it's your body's warning to you that you have been exposed for too long, and the sensible approach is to cover up by wearing clothing or move out of the sun altogether. It's important that you listen to your body and its signals - the danger of sunscreens that contain burn inhibitors is that the damage is still being done, but you just can't feel it.Price
