Why is sunscreen important?
SINGAPORE, April 2015 – A 2014 Benchmark Survey commissioned by Kao Singapore revealed a surprising find - that only 30% of women between the age of 12 and 49 years old use a sunscreen daily. What is even more startling is that this number has remained unchanged for the past five years 1 even with the introduction of more sun care products over the past few years.
Based on this worrying trend, it is apparent that women in Singapore do not consider protection against UV damage a priority.
This year, Bioré aims to change that. For a start, Bioré has introduced its complete range of new and enhanced sunscreen products, offering the highest level of UV protection recognised in the industry –
SPF50+ and PA++++ rating (previously PA+++). Bioré’s enhanced UV Series is your
perfect shield against skin woes that could be easily prevented, like sun spots, wrinkles and freckles caused by damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays. Along with this improvement, Bioré will launch its newest addition to the range, the Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel, which provides the highest level of UV protection from head to toe! Thanks to Bioré’s unique Aqua Rich technology, it comes in the
same light and watery texture of Bioré’s popular UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence,
loved by women for its cool and refreshing feel upon application.
They can help to prevent skin disease or cancer.
The most damaging UV rays can be classified into different wavelengths, known as UVA and UVB. UVA rays penetrate into the deeper layers of our skin as compared to UVB rays, and are also the dominant tanning ray. The penetrative ability of UVA rays through glass means that even when you’re seeking shelter indoors, your skin continues to be exposed to its harmful effects which can cause cumulative damage such as wrinkling and skin ageing.
On the other hand, UVB rays cause the most damage to the outer layer of skin such
as reddening of skin and sunburns. Without proper protection, prolonged exposure to UVB rays can cause long-term damage to skin’s epidermal layers. Industry’s highest level of UV protection, keeping you safe from harmful UV damage!
Sunscreen products are rated based on two rating systems, known as
Skin Protection Factor (SPF) and the PA rating system.
The SPF rating determines the duration of time your skin stays protected against UVB rays from the sun. The calculation method is simple -
SPF Rating x (no. of minutes for skin to darken under sun)
= No. of minutes skin is protected from UVB rays
Eg. SPF50 x 20mins = 1000mins of protection from UVB
(equivalent to 16 hours of protection)
A sunscreen with the rating of SPF50 is sufficient coverage, as it blocks up to 98
percent of UVB rays from penetrating into skin. Anything higher than a SPF50 rating
compromises on the texture of the sunscreen, making it heavier and greasier when applied to skin.
As for PA rating is a Japanese rating system that shows how much protection you are receiving against UVA rays. The higher the number of pluses, the greater the protection against UVA rays. Currently, the highest standard of PA protection in the industry is PA++++.
No more heavy and greasy sunscreens
Results from Kao Singapore’s Benchmark Survey also shows that the top reason why
women prefer not to apply a sunscreen is the sticky, greasy feeling on skin that most sunscreens tend to leave behind.
This is where the light, watery texture of Bioré’s Aqua Rich Watery Gel stands out!
Similar to the Aqua Rich Watery Essence, it is formulated with Bioré’s unique Aqua
Rich technology to give it a light and watery texture when applied onto skin.
