The Active Formula SPF 25 is ideal for travel and sports use. The cream provides broad spectrum protection against UVA & UVB rays and is water resistant, so can be applied for use in the sea or pool.
|Intended Use:||Sun Protection|
In Lifesystems Active sun creams, four different technologies are used:
1. There is a certain form of plankton which jellyfish do not eat. An extract of this plankton is added. This binds to the jellyfish sting sensor and blocks it. Thus it does not send a message to fire the sting.
2. A mineral salt containing calcium is added. If the sensor which activates the jellyfish sting does send the message to fire, this mineral salt confuses the actual message preventing firing.
3. The sun cream contains a mixture of sugar and protein which is similar to the substance found in the jellyfish bell. Jellyfish use their bells to distinguish themselves from prey. So when the jellyfish encounters this substance, it thinks it is touching itself and is not tempted to fire a sting.
4. The sun cream is designed to be water resistant and is therefore quite slippery. This makes it difficult for the jellyfish to make contact with the skin in the first place.
Exposure to sunshine is the commonest cause of skin cancers. When exercising you will sweat and this can increase the chance of sunburn, so it is very important that you use a quality sun care product with the correct level of protection. Different people have different skin types, so some are more prone to burning and sun damage than others. People who have fair skin, blue eyes and fair, or red hair are generally more sensitive to the effects of sunshine and need more protection.
