Research shows that sun damage is the #1 cause of the skin’s premature aging. UVA & UVB (Ultraviolet rays) originating from the Sun produce up to 90% of premature “skin aging” symptoms. These UV rays penetrates the skin layers, damages it and causes wrinkles, freckles, pigmentation, discoloration etc.
UVB rays are the cause of sunburns and affect the skin’s outer layers. UVA rays penetrates deep into the skin layers & its intensity remains unchanged even at low-level exposures.
To minimize the damage, sunscreen is a must-have product for men & women of all ages.
