This sun oil from Biosolis offers a mild protection against UV rays and is therefore only suitable for those with darker skin or those who are already tanned.
Karanja oil is the main ingredient in this SPF 6 sun oil. It is an oil that offers support whilst tanning by hydrating the upper layer of the skin and restructuring it. In Ayurveda Karanja oil is used because of its restoring effect on the skin.
Other oils in the natural sun oil:
The protection factor of this sun oil originates from natural protection that the oil ingredients offer. There are no additional mineral or chemical filters added.
Sun oil is easily spreadable and thanks to the spray pump this SPF 6 oil is also very easy to apply to hair or hairy body parts. Think of arms and the chest for men, or for the hair on our head. Sun oil can prevent any unnecessary damage.
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.
