‘I’m much more careful now about what I put on my skin than I used to be. I’m outdoors so much with the dogs and need something to protect from the sun. However the last thing I want to do is cause serious skin problems through using SPF.  This article, written by the co-founders of Essentially Yours explains the dangers of SPF .’ Ceri Rundle

After 20 years in the development world of skincare, with the last 5 years following the university’s research of leading scientists in cell decay and  causes of damage to cells, we believe that the chemicals in sunscreens are the root cause of skin irritations like Rosacea.

Reports back from eczema sufferers this year show that cleared skin issues came back immediately after using a sunscreen. This further points at the fact that SPF products are toxic to human cells. Worse still they also could actually be causing skin cancer…

In the USA in the last few years it has  shown in a clinical test that when the ingredients  in all SPFs are present, it dramatically speeds up the oxidative stress of free radicals. This  in turn  causes cell decay, ageing and the damaged mutated cell [cancer]. This is why Karen and I simply don’t use SPFs ever.

We prefer to use antioxidant oils to protect us from the free radical damage caused by the suns UVA rays. While this does not stop us enjoying the sun in shorts in the garden or going on holiday in the sun, you do have to be careful.  While the oils in all our products neutralise the very damaging UVA rays, you can still get burnt by UVB. However, you’d have to be somewhat careless, for example, staying out in direct strong sunlight for too long, which even when you use a SPF is damaging.

This works for us enormously and we are told by thousands who also experience using natural oils it works for them. We get great tans which last into most of the winter and of course, because we don’t use SPF’s  we can absorb vitamin D from the sunshine – the most important of all vitamins, which are totally stopped by wearing an SPF.

Did you know that 2/3rds of the western world are hugely deficient in Vitamin D and rickets is coming back?

Enjoy the sun at the weekend? But does your SPF protect your skin or make it worse?

30707258_1893388187360398_4831019270440505003_nAccording to a recent poll, 80% of people don’t understand what SPF protection means and 56% didn’t know SPF only protects against UVB rays not UVA rays.

For all dog handlers (like me) outside in all weathers, it’s important to understand the facts about UVA and UVB and that we need to protect our skin against both.

What is UVA & UVB and what is the difference?

UVA light contributes to skin ageing and the development of skin cancer as it penetrates deeper into the skin. It has a consistent intensity throughout the day, all year round and can penetrate through cloud and glass.

UVB light is more intense and leads to the redness and sunburn that is indicative to some degree of damage which in turn can potentially lead to skin cancers.

Think of it as UVBurn and UVAging!

Essentially Yours work hard to develop the best possible products for your skin. Try using these products in conjunction with your normal SPF product to give you protection against UVA damage.

Remember, UVAging!
