Protect your patients with the UK's no.1 prescribed sunscreen1

Skin cancer rates have increased rapidly in England over the past 35 years2. In 2011, there were 13,348 cases of malignant melanoma and 102,628 cases of non-malignant melanoma skin cancer diagnosed in the UK3, with a disproportionately higher rate amongst younger people4. In fact, UK deaths from this type of cancer are now catching numbers in Australia, which has the highest incidence in the world5. Furthermore, it cost the NHS an estimated £105.2 million in 2008/09 to treat skin cancer, and this is expected to rise to more than £180 million by 20206.

Some patients are more at risk than others

People with fair skin, a personal or family history of skin cancer, a large number of moles, a history of sunburns or skin that freckles easily are all more susceptible to skin damage, as are Crohn’s disease and colitis suffers or those who have undergone chemotherapy or radiation therapy. It is especially important that people in these groups protect themselves from the harmful effects of the sun. With UK SunSense’s range of sunscreen products, you can offer the highest levels of UV protection available7 to your patients.  

Here are just some of the reasons to choose SunSense for your high-risk patients:

  • The highest SPF available and offer both UVA and UVB protection
  • Specifically formulated using high quality ingredients
  • Suitable for all ages and skin types including sensitive skin and children’s skin
  • Free from para aminobenzoic acid derivatives and Lanolin
  • Dermatologically tested
  • Formulated with a variety of physical blockers and/or chemical UV absorbers to provide very high levels of sun protection
  • MI free (Methylisothiazolinone),yet still offers a shelf life of 3-5 years
  • The UK’s No.1 prescribed sunscreen1

Research suggests that sun exposure is the main cause of UV damage, and up to 50% of UV exposure to the age 60 occurs before the age of 208. When recommending a sunscreen, remember that everyone’s skin is different and no single product will suit everybody.
