This is the most important information we've shared - why understanding the UV effect on your skin is vital.

Updated: Mar 12

Understanding UV, and it's effect on your skin - is so so so important to know.


Why? Becasue light from the sun contains UV radiation which can damage your skin.


It’s important to remember that UV can’t be seen or felt, and cloud cover won’t necessarily reduce UV radiation levels.


The UV index can be high even on cool and overcast days.


The UV index is a tool you can use to know when to protect yourself from UV radiation.


While it's recommended every day, when the UV index is 3 and above, sun protection is absolutely crucial.


If you have very fair skin and will be in the sun for long periods (more than an hour), you may need protection even if the UV index is below 3.



For smartphone users, the Cancer Council’s free SunSmart app called "SunSmart Global UV" is a great way to check the UV Index in your area. Download it today!


PS. Our all-natural sunscreen is SPF 50+ and is designed for our harsh Australian climate, (while keeping your skin looking in tip-top shape).

My daily regime for the past 18 mths includes the use of sunscreen under my foundation as I am to avoid the sun to my face, particularly my nose, as much as is possible for the rest of my life. I was recently gifted a bottle of your sunscreen. I love it & will continu…

Oh Debra - I only just saw your comment!! I'm so sorry for the very delayed response!


THANK YOU for sharing your story. And I'm so glad the abnormal cells taken from your nose were benign. 🙏🏼 Though still a very big reminder how damaging the sun can be, and how careful we must be to only have short bursts of unprotected exposure. So thank you for this reality check.


My partner had a stage 1 melanoma removed from his nose, and subsequently has a chunk missing from his nose now too (he's a surfer with fair skin). I know he gets self conscious about it (mind you, I don't even notice it!) I hope your nose doesn't cause you…
