Important Sun Statistics:
· Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States
· Sun exposure is the number one cause of accelerated skin aging
· Clothing, clouds, and tree shade only block about 20% of UV rays
· Sunscreens also block the skins ability to product vitamin D
Sunscreen is no longer an option. It’s a necessity of daily life. Shaklee’s SPF 30 (# 32556) is the safest, and most effective sunscreen available. It provides high-level and broad-spectrum UV protection. It does do by protecting and feeding your skin in 2 different ways.
First, it blocks damage caused by both types of UV radiation (UV-A and UV-B). This prevents damage to the collagen and elastin layers of the skin. That’s important because those layers maintain skin firmness, and prevent premature skin sag and wrinkling.
Second, SPF 30 contains the patented Vital Repair+, a remarkable combination of vitamins A, C, and E, along with panthenol, grapeseed extract, superoxide dismutase, and beta glucan. In clinical trials Vital Repair+ has been shown to protect against cellular death caused by UV exposure. It’s also the secret ingredient that made Enfuselle the premiere skin care line. We’ll revisit that topic shortly.
Shaklee’s sunscreen is also significantly superior to popular products that contain avobenzone. Recent studies have demonstrated that avobenzone degrades quickly in normal sunlight. Whatever protection it provides declines rapidly with prolonged (more than 1 hour) exposure to sunlight. Another recent study revealed that a second sunscreen favorite, named titanium dioxide, does not provide broad-spectrum UV protection.
