This summer, one-third of Irish people with skin complaints will struggle to find sun protection free of parabens, sulfates or alcohol, ingredients that often cause discomfort and irritate delicate skin.
According to Joanna Gardiner, CEO of Elave Skincare, the sensitive skincare brand has produced total sun protection for sensitive skin with an extensive range covering lip, face, body and after-sun care, allowing full family protection regardless of skin sensitivity or complaint.
“Despite the fact that we don’t think we get a lot of sun, Ireland now has the highest reported incidence of non-melanoma skin cancer in Europe. We’re delighted to now offer a range of sun protection products for people with sensitive skin," she says.
"Elave Sensitive Daily Skin Defence SPF45 provides a unique combination of oil-free emollients to hydrate the skin together with high UVA and UVB protection. The invisible zinc is absorbed quickly and the vitamin B5 and vitamin E anti-oxidant enriched formula helps protect skin and repair environmental skin damage.
"Elave Sensitive Daily Lip Defence is an ultra hydrating lip balm with broad-spectrum sun protection factor SPF20 to protect lips from the harmful effects of UVA and UVB rays. It contains a multi-action formula with coconut oil, shea butter, naturally derived collagen and vitamin E to recondition, smooth and protect lips."
Elave also provides sun protection for infants and children, with its Sensitive Sun SPF30. The water resistant and allergen free formula offers broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection, and is paediatrician approved from newborn.
