Apollo Develops New Sunscreen Formula

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - January 07, 2016) - Sunscreens are meant to protect our skin from the sun's harsh UV rays and can help prevent some skin cancers. Sunscreens are a very complex mixture of emulsified liquids which are stabilised with complex emulsifiers and structuring agents. They still do not protect the skin completely as has been evidenced by recent data that has forced the US Congress to demand that the FDA approve alternative ultraviolet light ray sunscreens owing to the observance of increased carcinoma (a type of skin cancer) on certain occasions of increased sunscreen usage.

SPF, sun protection factor, is a relative measure of how long a sunscreen will protect you from ultraviolet UVB rays. Standard SPF systems require sunscreen levels to be half that of the declared SPF. Apollo has developed sunscreens that are nearly emulsifier free, allowing for a more uniform spread of sunscreen agents across the skin and thus increasing sunscreen efficiency. This means that less sunscreen is required to do the requisite job. The minimal use of emulsifier means that Apollo sunscreens are inherently more water resistant and, combined with our natural Oleosome technology, possessed of enhanced sunscreen photo-stability. Photo-stability means that your sunscreen's UV filters do not degrade or break down when exposed to sunlight.

To further enhance the performance of our sunscreen, Apollo has added a significantly effective antioxidant package that neutralises the free radicals that are created at the surface of the skin when sunlight interacts with the skin. This combination of technologies represents a manifest advancement in skin care where UV rays present adverse impact to skin.
