The Skin Cancer Foundation and PCA SKIN®
Wearing a sunscreen every day is one the best things you can do to maintain youthful skin. Equally important is understanding what type of sunscreen you are applying. For optimal protection against the sun’s harmful rays, choose a broad spectrum sunscreen which will protect the skin from UVA and UVB rays. Sunscreen products that have earned The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation are the gold standard in sun protection.
Why does The Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Recommendation matter? It means the sunscreen has been proven effective in the prevention of skin cancer, not just blocking rays that will cause sunburn.
Each of PCA SKIN’s sunscreens have earned The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation for either Daily or Active use. The Skin Cancer Foundation rigorously tests sun protection products to ensure they are safe and effective, and meet all of the requirements for broad spectrum use. Tests include UVA wavelength tests, confirming how protective the product is against the most “critical wavelength,” photostability ensuring that the product is still effective after an allotted time, and phototoxicity and irritation tests to certify that the product will not cause harm to the user. All data must be provided to support claims against water- or sweat-resistance.
PCA SKIN sunscreens offer the added benefits of antioxidants caffeine and silybin for an extra boost of protection.
