Sun Protection

What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You

Nearly all sunscreens on the market today offer a great deal of protection but in a very limited range within the UVB range and almost none in the UVA range. While it is true that UVB exposure can lead to accelerated aging of the skin and an increased risk of skin cancer, scientists and researchers have recently discovered that UVA also causes an increased risk of skin cancer. This may have a significant bearing with the recent epidemic growth rate of Malignant Melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer. Therefore, when using a sunscreen, it is important to use Dermatologist-recommended sunscreens. Our Pro-Tect® SPF 20 absorbs the most radiation across the widest range of frequencies.
