SunHero – when should I apply more sunscreen?
Am I protected? When should I apply more sunscreen?
Do you always have the same problem on the beach, is the sunscreen protecting or not? With SunHero Sunscreen indicator, you’re not guessing. SunHero changes colour from white to purple when it’s time to apply more sunscreen. Enjoy the beach life and boost your health without burning yourself!
Why do I need SunHero?
SunHero is designed to provide good protection from the sun and help prevent children and adults from burning. Malignant melanoma is one of the fastest growing cancers and is often latent in the body for a long time before it becomes visible. It is therefore common that those who suffer have burned many years earlier, usually already as children.
Due to the risk of malignant melanoma, we have chosen to set a high limit of when SunHero will show that it’s time to apply more sunscreen. It works good with sunscreens of SPF 50 that provides a good protection.
SunHero works as well in the Swedish sun as on holiday in for example Thailand or the Mediterranean sea. Stronger sun means you need to apply more often and this is shown by SunHero easily and clearly.
Step 1 – Apply SunHero Sunscreen Indicator
Remove SunHero Sunscreen Indicator from the wearer and attach the indicator to the most exposed area of the body; we recommend the shoulder. Make sure the skin is wiped dry so it sticks well.
Step 2 – Apply sunscreen:
Apply sunscreen evenly to the skin and the SunHero sunscreen indicator by following the instructions on the sunscreen. For best results, sunscreen should dry for 20 minutes before being exposed to the sun. If SunHero sunscreen indicator changes color, you’re no longer well protected and you need to apply a thicker layer of sunscreen. When you’re protected, SunHero Sunscreen Indicator is white.
Step 3 – Indication to apply again
When the SunHero sunscreen indicator starts to turn purple, it’s your reminder to re-apply with sunscreen or seek shade. Apply sunscreen on the skin and SunHero sunscreen indicator again, follow the instructions on your sunscreen. When sunscreen is applied again to SunHero Sunscreen Indicator, it will be returned to white (its original color) if protected.
WHY IS SUNHERO STILL PURPLE?
If SunHero is still purple after applying a layer of sunscreen, it means you are not well protected. SunHero is calibrated to work with sunscreens that provide a high level of protection.
– I use sunscreen of SPF50+, why is SunHero still purple?
1. There are different protection values for UVA / UVB for different SPF50+. If you use sunscreen with a lower protection value on UVA / UVB, SunHero will indicate that you are not protected.
2. Many people apply less sunscreen than recommended for SPF50+. Recommendations are 1.5-2mg / cm2, which means approximately 30g+ for an adult. Always use sunscreen according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
– Why does SunHero work solely with sunscreens with high protection?
SunHero is designed to provide the best protection for children and adults. Malignant melanoma is one of the fastest growing cancers. Good sun protection and restrictive sun exposure are recommended.
SunHero sunscreen indicator reminds you to follow your sunscreen’s directions. Always pay attention when children under 3 years use the SunHero indicator to prevent the risk of them placing it in the mouth, chewing it or the risk of suffocation since SunHero indicators are small. Even though solid indicators are safe and non-toxic. Only use the indicator during the day. If the skin around the indicator forms a rash, consult a doctor if the redness has not disappeared within 48h. Store SunHero in a cool, dry and dark place away from the sun.
This product does not contain a sunscreen and does not protect against sunburn. Using SunHero indicator, combined with limiting sun exposure, wearing protective clothing, and careful use of sunscreens may reduce the risks associated with sun exposure. Such protective measures cannot eliminate the risks presented by sun exposure.
Some sunscreen creams do not provide a high level of protection. SunHero is designed for high level of protection of SPF50+ sunscreen. If UV over the limit reaches SunHero, it shows “not well protected” even if it may just have been smeared – use another brand or SPF as protection instead.
Which sunscreen is the best then?
– It’s up to you, SunHero fits with all the good sunscreens of SPF 50+. SunHero easily indicates if it’s not a good sunscreen, then SunHero will change colour although you are covered, which means you either need to apply more or change the sunscreen for a better one.
