Webinar: The Impacts of SPF on Skin and the Environment
About This Event
June 26 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm BST
We all know how important it is to wear SPF to prevent ageing and more importantly, prevent burning and decrease our likelihood of developing skin cancer – for all skins.
In recent years, we have heard more about the impacts of certain sunscreen chemicals on coral, which has seen the term ‘reef safe’ become another claim being used to market product, but without evidence. It’s easy to assume that ‘natural’ or mineral sunscreens are better for us and for the ocean, but is that automatically the case?
In a professional capacity, many natural sunscreens are problematic – not because they don’t work, but rather because of their texture and the white cast left behind from the physical blockers Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide, which also makes them unsuitable for many of our more melanin-rich clients.
In this webinar, we want to dive into the complexities of SPF formulation, the “reef safe claims”, and best practice in wearing and choosing the right SPF for you and your clients or work scenarios.
