Protection against the sun
UV-B rays are harmful and can damage skin cells (sunburn). When skin is burnt by the sun, this is remembered by the ‘skin’s memory’ and repeated burns may lead to sun allergies. Therefore it’s important to protect yourself well against the sun with sunscreen products and UV-resistant clothing.
Getting a tan
In the event of repeated UV radiation, the epidermis of the skin thickens and reflects the sun rays. The formation of pigment, or what we see as sun tan, is another defense mechanism. The skin pigment called Melanin functions as a sun screen and absorbs most of the UV rays. This natural protection is only effective for short periods of exposure to the sun.
Care Plus tip
Applying sunscreen products again does NOT lengthen the sun time.
The patented technology of Care Plus® Outdoor & Sea SPF 50 is based on the clown fish, best known from the Disney film Finding Nemo. Scientists were amazed at the fact that clown fish can swim through coral and live among sea anemones without being stung. The sea anemone, which is a member of the jellyfish family, uses tiny poisonous harpoons to hunt fish. On closer examination, it turned out that the clown-fish’s secret is a protective mucous layer on its skin. Because of this mucous layer, sea anemones simply do not recognize the clown fish as prey and do not fire poisonous harpoons into its skin. This unique protective layer formed the basis for further research into inhibitors to prevent jellyfish stings.
