Description

Solascren lotion is a non-greasy, water resistant, protective sun block, which helps prevent sunburn in all types of skin. It provides a high degree of protection against the harmful effects of ultraviolet components of sunlight which are responsible for skin cancer, wrinkling, premature ageing and darkening of the skin due to overexposure.

Solascren provides a sun protection factor (SPF) of 6 against UVA rays and 28 against UVB rays. The SPF describes how much longer you can remain in the sun without being affected by these rays, compared with unprotected skin. Solascren gives you 28 times your natural sunburn protection and maintains its degree of protection up to 60 minutes in water.
