  • Article

The summer sun is blazing and skin protection is on many minds. With unique ingredients and features, these new sun care products are beating the heat. The Mintel Global New Product Database (GNPD) highlights the newest sun care products out this summer.

Recently released in Israel, Safe Sea Sunscreen offers SPF 30+ protection for babies and children. It is effective against UVA and UVB rays for up to 80 minutes. Not only does this product protect from the sun, it also offers protection against jellyfish stings. This multi-function product is dermatologist tested and safe for children six months and over.

For sensitive skin, Migros of Switzerland presents Sun Look Sensitive Sun Spray. The product is a water resistant sun spray for sensitive skin with SPF 20, bisabolol, vitamin E and panthenol. Further catering to those with sensitive skin, this product is free from perfume, emulsifiers, colorants, and preservatives. This range of Sun Look products already contains Sun Sprays with SPF 12, 15, 25 and 30. This is the first of the range to be made available for sensitive skin.

Cosmetic Dermatology of the U.S.A. has released Daily UV Protection. The 5 oz. tube of cream has an SPF of 30 and an Active Renewal Shield, which protects skin and provides UVA and UVB protection. The cream’s active protection shield causes the skin’s defense mechanisms to react before sun damage is caused and uses microspheres to refract light away from skin. The product contains anti-oxidants, such as green and white tea, and grape seed extract, which keep the skin moisturized and elastic. Along with sun protection, the cream leaves a smooth and silky feel.

Out of Hong Kong, Clarin’s Eye Contour Care is available with an SPF of 30. This product provides sun wrinkle control and advanced ultra sun protection. Offering a fragrance-free formulation, Eye Contour Care provides 100% mineral filters and plant extracts for reinforced protection and a smooth, fine, transparent texture.

New under the Alba Botanica Hawaiian Skin Care brand is an Aloe Vera SPF 15 Sunscreen. The sunscreen is made with a blend of tropical fruit extracts, which defend against free radical damage. The extracts continue their work, soothing and repairing sensitive skin. The popular aloe vera ingredient is combined with sunflower seed oil, which is absorbed by the skin quickly and effectively. The product is available in a 4 fl oz tube and has been certified organic and hypoallergenic.

China’s Everyu Ice Crystal Sun-Block Kit offers everything needed for a day in the sun. The kit contains a 50 ml Deeper Sun Screen Lotion with SPF 25 PA+++, which claims to be sweat and waterproof. It is said to form a long-lasting protective film to block sun and prevent damage from UVA. The lotion also provides protection from air pollution, replenishes skin and claims to reduce cutin aging. Once the day has ended, the kit holds an After Sun Recovering Milk which claims to block air pollution, prevent dark spots and replenish moisture to the skin. Finally, the kit includes a Whitening Ice Medicated Facial Masque. The product is filled with essential oil and continues the replenishment of moisture and nutrients, deep into the skin.

Soft Sense After-Sun Repair Foaming Snow is another product from China, designed to provide relief after a day in the sun. The product claims to have double repair effect. The first repair is foaming that is said to calm and relax skin with a quick massage. The second repair contains unique ingredients, including aloe vera extract, licorice and oatmeal. It is said to help block free radical damage from after sun. Foaming Snow is used to repair skin as well as reduce redness and sun damage. The foam is said to raise skin self-protection ability and provide an after sun spa experience.
