Synergistic Body Oil 300ml for UVA Protection
A holiday must-have, this scent & allergy-free, moisturising blend of Avocado, Peach and Grapeseed Oils protect the skin in the sun whilst deeply moisturising. Grapeseed Oil is very rich in natural antioxidants to protect against UVA free radical damage and reinforces the hydrolipid film, leaving the skin silky soft and nourished. Peach Oil is rich in vitamins A, E and essential fatty acids which promote cell regeneration whilst encouraging suppleness, repair and skin elasticity. Avocado which is the best protector from UVA is lavish emollient oil rich in vitamins A, B, D, E and fatty acids to hydrate, support and moisturise the epidermis. This combination of oils means you have huge antioxidant value at the highest levels of the skin (which is where the UVA protection happens) according to the research of Birmingham University,
Unlike synthetic SPFs, this oil doesn't stop you from absorbing Vitamin D. Please note however that our oil only has limited resistance to UVB light (which causes sunburn to the surface) The key to protecting your skin is to make sure your skin doesn't burn, building sun exposure up over days will help the melanin rise naturally in your skin which will control the reflection of the light which in turn stop the skin burning naturally.
To stop you getting burnt get regular shade and rests out of the direct sun light. Now importantly in the shade or wearing a hat /clothes/ windows does not stop UVA damage (the main source of cell mutation so ageing and skin cancer) so continue to use the oil on the skin if out of direct sunlight or in a car.
Key Ingredients: Avocado, peach, Grapeseed
How to Use: For the first few days of your holiday, apply Synergistic Body Oil, regularly and stay in direct sunlight for only short periods of time ( ultra-sensitive 10 to 20 minutes and no peak times ie midday-3pm),. If you tan easily this can be longer and you can while being sensible be in the sun more as your skin tans ie melanin is produced, reapply after every swim after you’ve washed off the salt or chlorine. Listen to your skin, head out of the sun and cover up when your skin has had enough. To find out more about what we think about synthetic sunscreens, you can read our blog here.
Did you know that Vitamin D deficiency is shown to raise COVID-19 ICU risk 20 fold. Being in the sun for just 15 mins gives you the best Vitamin D that your body can absorb. We are working with Birmingham University to show that with our oil on the skin, Vitamin D is more quickly absorbed. Read more about this news HERE
Tip: Use Soothing Body Lotion at the end of the day over the top of oil to leave a matt finish and lock in the beneficial ingredients.
If you can’t be parted from your usual SPF you can minimise the damage caused by applying Hydrating Facial Oil and Synergistic Body Oil before you apply your SPF to protect your skin.
Using our Invigorating Body Wash at the end of the day will remove all chlorine chemicals and seawater from the skin.
