✔ Offers immediate protection after application
✔ With mineral filters without any nanoparticles
✔ For all types of skin
✔ Without petroleum derivatives
Sun milk from Biosolis is suitable for all types of skin, even the most sensitive ones. All sun care products from Biosolis contain natural ingredients with a low risk for allergic reactions. No essential oils and perfumes were added and Biosolis opted for natural mineral filters without nanoparticles, like titanium dioxide and zinc oxide.
In contrast to chemical filters, natural filters stay on top of the skin where they reflect sunlight and therefore minimize the risk of allergic reactions.
This sun milk with SPF 30, in addition, has a high concentration of regenerative aloe vera much like in all the Biosolis products. As a main ingredient, aloe vera can be found in the first spot on the ingredients lists. This sun milk also contains Karanja oil, a natural photo protecting oil, and other protective vegetal oils.
SPF stands for ‘Sun Protection Factor’ and indicates the average time period after which the skin will burn, without the protection of sunscreen or sun spray.
The number behind SPF was determined through specific tests. A group of people were exposed to a light spectrum that is the equivalent of midday sunshine in a controlled environment (inside). A part of this group of people used a sunscreen, the other part did not. The amount of ‘light exposure’ that caused red skin in the protected group was subsequently divided by the amount of light that caused redness in the non-protected group. The result was a number which indicates UVB light and this number can be anywhere between 1 and 50, or higher.
An SPF factor of 30, for example, will ensure that your skin, the skin that would turn red after about 10 minutes without any sun protection, only starts turning red after 300 minutes with sun protection. So, with an SPF 15 you can stay in the sun up to 15 times longer.
Scientific research has shown that from SPF 15 or factor 15 the skin is protected against the damage that sunrays can create.
Biosolis is the first Belgian producer of organic sun care products:
Sun cream protects your skin only when used often enough
The AAD (American Academy of Dermatology) recommends to apply the amount of sunscreen needed to fill a shot glass (approximately) across the entire body. This is also the same as a well-filled palm.
Moreover, make sure to apply enough sunscreen to the areas of the body which are most exposed to the sun, such as your shoulders, your ears, chest and feet.
According to the AAD, we have the tendency to use too little sun cream on our faces – because we want to spread out sunscreen too much to avoid having white residue on our skin or to apply make-up. The face, therefore, is often not sufficiently protected. Try to ensure that a minimum of 1 teaspoon of sunscreen is applied to the face.
Remember to repeatedly re-apply sunscreen
For most sun care products, it is preferable to apply your sunscreen anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes before going outside and into the sun. This gives your skin enough time to absorb and process the ingredients so that you are protected against the damaging UVA and UVB rays.
The sun care products from Biosolis distinguish themselves by immediately protecting the skin right after applying.
Re-apply every two hours, after swimming and also after sweating. Don’t forget that daylight means sunlight. Even in the autumn and the winter your skin is exposed to sunrays. Some light protection can prevent early aging and premature wrinkles.
Sunscreen is not waterproof, but water resistant
Whether you are swimming or exercising rigorously in the sun, both water and sweat mix with the sun cream on your skin and weaken its protection. Sun cream is, therefore, never water proof even though this is often stated on the labels of sun care products. Waterproof in this context refers to the fact that the sun tan lotion contains petrochemicals and closes off the pores of your skin.
Water resistant is used to indicate how long the sun cream remains on wet skin, after how much time the sun cream should be re-applied. This is on average between 40 and 80 minutes.
Sunscreen has a limited shelf-life
A sunscreen loses its strength as time goes by. On most sun care products, the shelf life is mentioned. It does you well to remember to check the ‘expiration date’, as to ensure that your skin is optimally protected. If you’re using sunscreen the whole year-round, then it should not be an issue to finish the tube before it has reached its expiration date.
