You already know that staying out of the sun and wearing broad-spectrum sunscreens are the gold standards for protecting skin from wrinkle- and spot-causing UV rays.
Why Are Sunscreens Important?
The US government has identified ultraviolet radiation (UVR) from the sun and from tanning machines as a known cause of cancer in humans. UVR produces DNA damage that can potential cause abnormalities in genes involved in the advancement of skin cancer.
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that the sun causes 90 percent of all non-melanoma skin cancers.
Excessive unprotected time in the sun leads to premature wrinkling, sagging, a leathery texture and hyper-pigmentation.
Our Skin and Lip Balm contains zinc oxide which provides a broad-spectrum sun protection. It prevents burns (including on photo-sensitive skin), improving wound healing and preventing bacterial infections.
