What You Need To Know:
We’re on a mission to help end Sun Poverty - and you can help us by joining in with our #SunPoverty campaign; with your help, we aim to donate tens of thousands of sunscreens to school children in the U.K who are eligible for free school meals, through our buy-one-donate-one scheme.
We want to educate everyone about the importance of wearing quality broad-spectrum sunscreen, so we’ve made sure that this SPF formula ticks every box; it offers 4-hour water-resistance, it’s hypoallergenic and fragrance-free, and of course, it’s broad-spectrum. This means that it protects against both UVA and UVB rays (which are the cause of everything from sunburn to photoageing and harmful skin damage). And yes, UVA rays can even penetrate through clouds and windows!
Our chemical sunscreen also helps to look after skin further with antioxidant vitamin e and skin-soothing aloe, which offers anti-inflammatory and skin-quenching benefits.
Why It’s Escentual:
There’s never been anything more Escentual (pun intended!) than our SPF50+ sunscreen for kids and adults alike. Here at Escentual, we’re incredibly passionate about teaching people about the importance of wearing sunscreen so everyone is better equipped to help keep their skin safe and healthy in the sun.
But not everyone has easy access to affordable broad-spectrum sunscreen, but we want to help change this through our #SunPoverty initiative. Our fun clippable bottle has space to write your little one's name, ensuring your child never loses their suncream at school, so they can always stay protected. For each of our sunscreens bought through us, we’ll donate one to a child eligible for free school meals because every child should have the right to access broad-spectrum sunscreen.
The Best Way To Use It:
Apply 20 mins before sun exposure, so that the sunscreen has a chance to soak into the skin properly. Take care to apply a generous even layer, ensuring that you don’t miss any parts exposed to sunlight (areas that are often forgotten about are the under eye area,eyelids and the inner corner of your eye socket, along with the ears, neck, and back of the neck. Reapply every two hours to maintain a high level of protection, taking care to reapply after excessive sweating, swimming or towel drying.
The Sustainable Side:
The cap is recyclable and the bottle is also recyclable once the label and clip have been removed. Alternatively, you can reuse and refill the bottle and carabiner clip once rinsed out.
