Race for Life– Higher Skin Cancer Protection with the sun mousse®

Share Article

Race for Life is just days away. Over 3 million women all across the UK are expected to take part in one of UK’s biggest Cancer Research events– but with the race taking place outdoors, it is important to ensure anyone taking part is fully protected from the power of the sun.

"....the sun mousse® is zinc oxide free, which is great news”.

Sun exposure is the main cause of malignant melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer. Cancer Research UK have found that ’In 2010, 2749 people in the UK died from malignant melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer, with such cases in Britain quadrupling over the last 30 years‘.

Recently, further concerns have risen in the Daily Mail, regarding the use of certain chemicals in sunscreens possibly causing skin cancer, making the right selection of sunscreen an additional issue. Shockingly where sunscreen was once a prevention of skin cancer, can now be a risk.

For years the sun mousse® has been a popular choice of sunscreen for many consumers. Very well established in one of UK’s leading health and beauty retailer’s Boot’s, the sun mousse® sunscreen in the past has offered a range of additional benefits in comparison to its competitors– and now with a few more.

Christian Hankins, Brand Manager of the sun mousse® adds, “We are constantly looking for ways of removing chemicals whilst maintaining the same great protection you should expect from a sunscreen. Currently the sun mousse® is zinc oxide free, which is great news”.

For all women taking part in the Race for Life– the sun mousse® is a ‘must-have’.

Water resistant– Unlikely to be washed away by water, sweat or towelling.
Make-up friendly– Just as effective when worn under make-up.
Non-greasy-Won’t clog skin’s pores and less likely to irate the skin causing prickly heat, allowing the skin to breathe.
Zinc/Oxybenzone* free– lowers risk of possible skin cancer caused by harmful chemicals.

(the sun mousse® SPF 50 and the sun mousse® for kids SPF 50 are Oxybenzone free. The rest of the range is due to follow suit next season.)
