Frequently asked questions

What SPF sunscreen do I need?

Sun Protection Factor (SPF) enhances your own natural level of protection, extending the time it takes for the skin to burn. However, it is best to limit sun exposure and remember that skin damage can occur even before sunburn is visible. Also it is important to remember that no sun protection lotion can give 100% protection.

Is Eucerin After Sun Lotion suitable for children?

Eucerin After Sun Lotion is suitable for young children over 3 years old.

What is the difference between mineral and chemical UVA/UVB filters, and which one should I use?

Chemical filters are absorbed by the skin and transform UV rays into harmless warmth, whereas mineral filters remain on the surface of the skin and reflect and scatter UV rays that reach the surface of the skin. Most modern sun protection formulas use a combination of both for effective protection.

What is the difference between UVA and UVB rays?

Long wave UVA (Ultraviolet A) rays emitted by the sun penetrate deeply into the skin and are the originating factor of oxidative stress in the skin. They play a greater role in long-term sun damage and are a major cause of skin ageing and skin cancer. In addition, UVA rays may trigger sensitive reactions such as polymorphic light eruption (PLE). Short wave UVB (Ultraviolet B) rays, on the contrary, cause more visible damage to the skin, leading to what we usually refer to as sunburn. It penetrates the skin less deeply than UVA but is the main responsibility for cellular DNA damage.

What product can I use for soothing skin that is already sunburnt?

Although sun burn should be avoided, if it does occur we recommend Eucerin After Sun Lotion. If you have any signs of sunburn you should avoid any further sun exposure until any reddening disappears. In severe cases of sun burn or if you also have any other symptoms, you should consult a doctor or pharmacist.
