In a recent study with 903 participants:

the group who used sunscreen daily showed 24% less skin aging than those who used it discretionally and

showed no detectible increase in skin aging after 4.5 years.*

Did you Know?

  • One person dies of melanoma every hour.
  • Contrary to popular belief, 80% of a person's lifetime sun exposure is not acquired before age 18; only about 23% of lifetime exposure occurs by age 18.
  • UVA rays go through glass, making sun protection necessary indoors as well as out.
