Protect your skin from sun damage with DermaFix Sun Protection
Over time, the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) light damages certain protein fibres in the skin called elastin. The breakdown of elastin fibres causes the skin to sag and lose its ability to snap back after stretching. The skin is more fragile, bruises easily and takes longer to heal. While sun damage may not show when you’re young, it will appear later in life. It’s important to know the difference between UVA, UVB, and UVC radiation, as they play different roles in affecting your skin. These radiations are differentiated according to their wavelength. While both UVA and UVB contribute to skin damage, UVA rays are now known to cause premature ageing, resulting in wrinkles, skin sagging and changes in skin texture. UVB radiation is primarily responsible for skin burning. This leads to stimulation of the melanocyte and causes the development of an uneven skin tone. UVC ray’s penetration into our atmosphere is largely prevented by the ozone layer and generally does not play a factor in skin health. All UV radiation rays can affect the structure of the cell and in turn, may lead to skin cancer.
DermaFix Sun Protection is formulated to meet all the necessary requirements as per the South African legislation and has been SANS 1557:2013 and ISO 24444, ISO 24443 approved to protect the skin from both damaging UVA/UVB rays. Furthermore, it offers water-resistant properties protecting the skin for up to 40 minutes whilst in water.
