Eucerin Sun Allergy Protect Sun Cream Gel SPF50


Product Information:

UV light is the main cause of sun-induced skin damage, but high-energy visible (HEVIS) light can also induce free radicals that cause further stress to skin.

Eucerin Sun Allergy Protect Gel-Cream SPF 50+ is a face and body sunscreen specially developed for sun-sensitive skin and skin prone to sun allergies such as Polymorphus Light Eruption (PLE)

The sunscreen for sun allergies offers very high UV protection: the UVA and UVB filters meet the high standards defined by Cosmetics Europe and the levels of UVA protection are higher than the EU recommendation. Eucerin’s Advanced Spectral Technology combines these broadband and photostable UVA/UVB filters with Licochalcone A to neutralize free radicals caused by UV and HEVIS light It also contains Alpha-Glycosylrutin which helps to prevent sun-induced allergies such as PLE.

Unperfumed, to minimize the risk of skin irritation, the non-greasy and non-sticky gel-cream absorbs quickly and is water-resistant.

Important usage instructions:

Apply generously before sun exposure and reapply frequently, especially after swimming, perspiring or towelling to maintain the original protection. Reducing the quantity will lower the level of protection significantly. Do not stay too long in the sun, even while using a sunscreen product. Over-exposure to the sun is a serious health threat. Keep babies and young children out of direct sunlight. Avoid contact with the eyes. Allow to absorb and avoid contact with textiles to prevent staining.
