Why should men use SPF in their skincare products?
SPF is often overlooked, especially when it comes to the colder months, but UV defence should be in every man’s daily skincare routine, come rain or shine - and here’s why:
- It slows down the signs of ageing (the sun is one of the main culprits of premature skin ageing)
- It protects the skin against cell-changing UVA rays, which leads to 99,789 diagnoses of melanoma each year (source)
- It reduces blotchiness, promoting an even skin tone
When & how should you use Ultrasun products?
All SPF skincare products should be applied at least 15-30 minutes before exposure to direct sunlight, to give them a chance to start working, and to avoid rapid evaporation. Ultrasun moisturisers are specially developed to be used in place of your everyday face cream. For guidance on specific products, please refer to the instructions on each label.
Who is the founder?
Swiss Chemist Tazio Tettamanti founded Ultrasun in 1995 after his brother became a victim of skin cancer. Determined to spread awareness and make a difference, his personal experience inspired him to establish a line of SPF protection skincare that would enhance the skin while offering effective UVA, UVB, infrared and blue light protection. Applying his knowledge and expertise gained over many years as a chemist, Tazio’s trusted formulas cater to all skin types, tones and textures.
