Spending prolonged time in the sun is a risky business, and one that you should be well informed about before undertaking.
There are many factors such as altitude, latitude, reflection from surrounding surfaces (buildings, glass, pavements, snow, water) which can all increase the intensity of the sun's rays.
It is advised that between the hours of 11am - 3pm you should cover up with appropriate clothing and seek shelter from the strongest sun.
Nowadays, there are too many dangerous chemicals that have found their way into mainstream sunscreens, and they in turn have found their way through our skin - into us!
If we're trying to avoid skin cancer, why would we use chemicals which are proven to cause it?
That simply doesn't make sense.
At an ideal SPF25, with only 4 ingredients to moisturise and protect skin from the broadest spectrum of damaging UVA and UVB rays, Shade has been developed to keep your skin naturally healthy whilst blocking rays that can burn and cause damage.
