A new and different approach to ‘sun care’
The philosophy behind the launch of
‘uvasol’ sun care products, is to create greater public awareness to the dangers of overexposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Overexposure to these rays causes sunburn, premature ageing of the skin and may ultimately lead to many skin disorders.
We are adopting an educational aspect, through our advertising, our website and our products, with the following aims:-
- Help you to minimise the risks when enjoying outdoor activities in the sun
- Help you to maximise the benefits the sun has to offer
- Reduce the incidence rate of skin cancers
Why is this more relevant today?
The incidence of skin cancers is rising quite alarmingly. These are usually caused from an accumulative effect of overexposure to the sun’s rays, over a number of years. Today we are beginning to see the results of these accumulative effects.
The advent of the package holiday, the desire to have a tanned skin, the depletion of the ozone layer and the misinterpretation of the protection afforded by ‘sunscreen’ products, are collectively the single most positive reasons for this rise
About 90% of all skin cancers are sun related and are in the main preventable.
From the surveys we conducted, it is clear that people in general have limited knowledge of this subject. The need to create greater public awareness is very relevant today.
This website has been carefully prepared with a selection of information, particularly linked to aspects relating to sun exposure. The headings are listed in sequel, starting with The Skin. Reading through these headings will help you to build an overall picture with the ultimate aim of allowing you to make an informed choice, when enjoying outdoor activities in the sun more safely.
