True heroes don’t need a sun-tanned dermis! Protect your face with our sunscreen creams and moisturising facial lotions. Excessive UV radiation not only causes sunburn but also irritates the skin and increases the risk of skin cancer. Whether as a spray, lotion or cream, the important thing is to apply it really thickly to achieve the best effect! You can find our sun creams and sun lotions with various sun protection factors (SPF) to give you the best possible protection your skin deserves when sunbathing - the stronger, the better. After sunbathing, our hydrating moisturizers, après-sun lotions and anti-ageing products are the perfect way to relax any tension and ride off into the sunset with young, refreshed skin.
How does sunscreen work?
Sunscreens usually contain chemical and physical UV filters to effectively protect the skin from UVA and UVB rays. The physical UV filters are based on mineral (nano) particles, which act as a protective film on the skin and reflect the sun's rays - for example, titanium dioxide or zinc oxide. The thicker they are applied, the more effectively they protect the skin and face from sun damage. Chemical UV filters function by organic molecules (e.g., octinoxate and other derivatives of cinnamic acid) that penetrate the skin, absorb sunlight, and thereby convert the UV rays to long-wave heat rays. To be effective, the sunscreen lotion should be applied 20-30 minutes before sunbathing and re-applied every one to three hours.
