All Ultrasun products need to be applied to clean, dry skin AT LEAST 15-30 MINUTES before going out in the sun. Use plenty and really let it sink in before going out into direct sunlight. Look out for easy to miss bits (around shoulder straps and your clothing). How you apply sun cream matters: DO IT FIRST THING, DO IT INDOORS AND APPLY ENOUGH. Any application in direct sunlight increases evaporation before it’s had a chance to bond with the skin, reducing its power to protect. Ultrasun products are based on a lamellar structure which means the product is absorbed quickly and they bind perfectly to the stratum corneum because they are very similar to the natural membrane lipids. This means the UV filters are protected and work for longer below the skin’s surface, and also leave no greasy residue. Ultrasun products require just one application a day to deliver long lasting, high level protection from both UVA and UVB rays. Generally one application is sufficient but another application may be required after extensive sweating, swimming, towel drying or in extreme temperatures. Please also refer to specific product instructions.
Once a day isn’t a license to bake, no one should be out in the sun all day. Be sun savvy, take shade breaks, avoid the sun during 11am -3pm and keep hydrated.
