It is important to protect your skin from the sun 365 days a year, but if it has not been on your radar, then now is a good time to start whilst you enjoy our beautiful sunny days. The sun is the number one accelerator of aging. We are affected by UV rays even if we can’t feel it.
Cellular Sun Shield SPF50+ PA++++ offers broad-spectrum protection with the highest-grade sunscreen filters available. With the latest scientific research and intelligent SPF formulation, it also identifies and repairs damage to the skin, strengthens the skin’s immune system and supports natural skin pigmentation.
What is PA++++
SPF indicates the level of protection from UVB rays while PA indicates the level of protection from UVA rays. UVA rays are longer and deeper penetrating, causing damage to the deeper dermal layers, collagen and elastin fibres. The appearance of wrinkles, sagging and a leathery appearance develops.
This Japanese measurement ranking, which is now widely used, is based on the Persistent Pigment Darkening (PPD) reaction reading at 2-4 hours of sun exposure. Protective grade of sunscreen is often levelled as PA+, PA++, PA+++, PA++++ with the more plus signs the more protection from UVA rays. PA++++ is the highest grade of UVA protection currently available.
