How do sunscreens work?

Sunscreens protect the skin from burning by either absorbing the harmful rays or reflecting them from the skin. No sunscreen can provide total protection from all of the sun's rays and that’s why it is always important to cover up using appropriate clothing and eye wear especially during the hottest part of the day.

What active ingredient does WOTNOT sunscreen use?

WOTNOT uses micronised Zinc Oxide (250mg/g) which reflects UV-A and UV-B rays rather than chemical actives which absorb these rays.

What does Broad Spectrum mean and is it important?

A sunscreen that provides broad spectrum protection protects against UV-B rays as well as UV-A.  All sunscreens protect against UV-A rays which cause sunburn however not all protect again UV-B which causes premature ageing of the skin.

Recent studies have shown that UV-A radiation plays a large role in causing gene mutations that can lead to skin cancer.  Therefore it is vital that when using a sunscreen you check that it offers broad spectrum protection.

Is it safe to use on babies and people with sensitive skin?

Babies should be sheltered from the sun as much as possible. However when this isn't possible or for people with sensitive skin, our sunscreen is the best option.  As with any product, if you feel that you or your baby may be allergy-prone then we recommend that you do a patch test before general use.

Why does WOTNOT sunscreen exclude chemical UV-absorbers?

Chemical UV-absorbers are absorbed very easily into the body and into the bloodstream. We have chosen not to use chemical UV-absorbers in our formula due to international medical research articles that have shown some chemical UV-absorbers have the potential to cause health problems.  Chemical sunscreens also have the potential to cause allergic dermatitis and also photo-allergic dermatitis. (Photo-allergic dermatitis differs from allergic dermatitis, as the irritation occurs only after the skin comes into direct exposure with the combination of the allergic substance and sunlight.) Physical sunscreens like zinc oxide do not cause this problem.

Does your sunscreen use titanium dioxide?

No our sunscreen does not contain titanium dioxide. We only use zinc oxide as an active ingredient.

What is SPF and what protection does it give?

SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. SPF numbers are an approximate indication of how much protection from the sun the product will provide for your skin.  Skin starts to burn after 5 to 10 minutes in the sun. Sunscreen extends that time by a multiple of the SPF e.g if we use an average time of 8 minutes to burn without sunscreen then:

  • SPF30 sunscreens will protect for 30 x 8 minutes or 240 minutes (4 hours)
  • SPF15 sunscreens will protect for 15 x 8 minutes or 120 minutes (2 hours)

It is also important to reapply sunscreen every 2 hours or after towelling dry or excessive sweating.  This will not prolong the amount of time you can stay in the sun but will ensure the effectiveness of your sunscreen for the remaining time that your sunscreen provides protection.

How much do I need to apply and does it work immediately?

It is important to apply your sunscreen 20-30 minutes before going out in the sun.  This allows the sunscreen to reach each layer of the skin and provides maximum protection.
Sunscreen should be applied evenly and liberally to ensure all exposed areas are protected.
