Trade for prosperity

Most of us enjoy being in the sunshine, it makes us feel good.

However too much sun exposure can lead to adverse effects on the skin such as sunburn, premature skin ageing, sun induced skin allergies, cold sores, immunosuppression of the skin and skin cancer

 

 

 

 

The main cause of skin cancer is exposure to UV from sunlight or sunbeds. Always remember it is not just exposure to the sun which will put you at risk, it is being out in the sun without adequate protection. If you take part in outdoor activities such as golf, cricket, bowls, ­skiing, gardening or attending outdoor sporting events or simply sunbathing, you will expose yourself to greater risk so always wear adequate sun protection

Uvistat provides balanced UVA/UVB sun protection and comes in two sun protection factors (SPF30 and SPF50) to cater for all skin types. All Uvistat products come with a three star UVA rating. Uvistat is fragrance free and specially formulated not to irritate the skin which makes them suitable for all skin types (even men who do not like fragrances!). It is important to re-apply frequently and generously after perspiring swimming or bathing.
