Sunscreen

Sunlight consists out of 2 kinds of light: the visible light that has colour, and the light that we are unable to see: ultraviolet rays (UV-rays) and infrared light. In small amounts UV-rays are healthy. For example, it stimulates the production of vitamin D, which improves the bones. However, if too many UV-rays touch the skin, it will become damaged. Protect your skin with Care Plus® sun screen.

Applying sunscreen products again does NOT lengthen the sun time

How to protect yourself from skin damage caused by UV rays

Stay out of the sun between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.; this is when the rays of the sun are the strongest. In the event of longer periods of direct or indirect exposure to the sun, you must wear clothing to cover your body and preferably something on your head. This clothing must be comfortable, breathable, moisture-wicking and of course UV-resistant. Uncovered skin must be treated with a sun screen with a high protection factor. The term Sun Protection Factor (SPF) is used in this respect.

It is recommended that children are never exposed to direct sun rays for longer than necessary. If this cannot be avoided, always wear clothing that covers the body and apply sun screen for children: that is a sun screen with a high sun protection factor on uncovered skin.

Sun screen products must always be applied thirty (30) minutes before exposure to the sun to ensure that the sun protection factor can work effectively.
