Ladival Sun Lotion SPF50+ is the strongest lotion in the range of sun protection products from this established German brand.
SPF50+ provides longer-lasting protection from the sun than the SPF15 or SPF30 lotions in the same range. If used appropriately this cream enables you to stay in the sun over 50 times longer without burning than without protection.
However, be mindful that the actual length of time you can stay out in the sun without burning varies according to several factors: most notably, the sun’s UV index, skin type, and your activities (swimming, sitting, running etc.).
Most sun lotions sold in the UK offer only partial protection from the range of harmful sun’s rays. Around 37 percent of the sun’s radiation is deemed harmful to human skin. However, most lotions offer protection against just 7 percent of the rays: the UV-A and UV-B radiation.
Ladival Sun Lotion SPF50+ filters out not only the sun’s UV-A and UV-B rays; it also keeps out Infrared-A radiation that can cause free radical damage in the skin. It makes up 30 percent of rest of sun's harmful rays, therefore employing the IR-D Infrared Defence™ system Ladival becomes more complete sunscreen than others on the market.
Another benefit of this lotion is its gentle action on the skin. Many sunscreens contain a range of chemicals that can be harmful to skin. Fragrances, colorants, parabens, preservatives, fats, and PEG emulsifiers are commonly found in such lotions, but Ladival Sun Lotion SPF50+ does not contain any of these.
Ladival Sun Lotion SPF50+ offers great protection from burning, sun allergies, and prickly heat, it does not irritate sensitive skin or aggravate skin conditions. It’s also water resistant, so it will continue to protect you while swimming. However, reapply it regularly if you are out for extended periods of time, especially when towelling dry.
