Beginning ages ago, and continuing on into 2015 and beyond, the generic sun block that offers basic sun Protection is changing. Consumers are beginning to focus their needs to address specific problems.
UVA rays are the long rays that penetrate the skin more deeply and cause skin wrinkling, dark spots, and other signs of sun damage or “photo-aging.” Until recently, there was no rating system for the level of protection a sunscreen offers against UVA rays. With increasing pollution and harmful sunrays which may cause severe sunburn and also cancer, there are new additions and formulations being made. This increases the competence of sunscreens. Based on the SPF number alone you don’t know how much protection you are getting against UVA rays. Here comes in the PA rankings(Protection Grade of UV-A), listed as PA+, PA++ or PA+++. The more plus symbols the label has, the more protection the sunscreen provides against UVA rays.
The inferior sun protection or worrisome ingredients like oxybenzone which were previously used are being replaced by natural ingredients like aloe vera, cucumber and even jojoba and rosemary extract in creams, lotions, gels, sticks, sprays and also lip balms which are also sweat and waterproof.
The next generation of sunscreens which are just hitting the market have gained popularity because they promise a quick application without leaving a white film on the skin or causing breakouts. The VLCC Sun Defense range ensures that your skin stays moisturized, thanks to the formula’s natural extracts like lemon and orange peel oil which cures dryness, removes sunburn and also prevents premature aging.
