General information Sunlight stimulates blood circulation and plays an important role in the synthesis of vitamin D, which the body requires for the production of calcium for bones. Sunlight also contributes to our well-being and vitality. Care Plus® offers a product line that allows you to enjoy the sun without worry. Our sun protection products fall under the high protection category: SPF 30 and 50. Not only do they protect from UV-B radiation, but also from UV-A radiation for at least 1/3 of the UV-B protection factor and free radicals. Protection from sun and jellyfish stings Many species of jellyfish can sting when they come into contact with people. Jellyfish stings can cause pain, swelling, itching, and redness of the skin. The seriousness of the symptoms depends on the type of jellyfish and amount of venom injected. Care Plus® Outdoor & Sea SPF 50 protects not only from the harmful rays of the sun, but also most jellyfish stings, coral and sea anemones. Outdoor & Sea SPF 50 forms a protective layer over skin, so that when the jellyfish comes into contact with the swimmer, it does not recognize him or her as possible prey and will not inject venom into skin. Outdoor & Sea SPF 50 also provides high UV protection and is waterproof. The active ingredient Panthenol nourishes and soothes skin. This cream has been clinically tested by dermatologists and is safe for use on children. Sensitive skin and childrens skin We recommend Care Plus® Sun Protection Sensitive SPF 50 for sensitive and childrens skin. Sensitive SPF 50 is waterproof and provides high UV protection. The cream has a pleasant odour and has a thicker texture than other sunscreens.

The face cream has moisturizing and soothing properties, thanks to ingredients like Canadian Willow Herb™, Cardiosper- Finding Nemo The patented technology of Care Plus® Outdoor & Sea SPF 50 is based on the clownfish, best known from the Disney film Finding Nemo. Scientists were amazed at the fact that clownfish can swim through coral and live among sea anemones without being stung. The sea anemone, which is a member of the jellyfish family, uses tiny poisonous harpoons to hunt fish. On closer examination, it turned out that the clownfishs secret is a protective mucous layer on its skin. Because of this mucous layer, sea anemones simply do not recognize the clownfish as prey and do not fire poisonous harpoons into its skin. This unique protective layer formed the basis for further research into inhibitors to prevent jellyfish stings.

UV-A, B and C radiation Sunlight is made up of UV-A, B and C rays, each with their own unique properties: • UV-A rays damage the elastin in the skin. Longterm exposure to these rays can lead to allergic reactions, wrinkles, premature skin aging and, ultimately, skin cancer. UV-A radiation penetrates skin more deeply than UV-B rays. • Exposure to too much UV-B radiation can cause reddening of the skin, sunburn, pigmentation, skin aging, thickening of the epidermis, and even different types of skin cancer. UV-B radiation is the most harmful in this respect. • UV-C radiation is filtered by the atmosphere and does not penetrate into skin. We do not need to protect ourselves from UV-C radiation. Sunscreen combined with insect repellent Anti-sunburn products should always be applied to skin 30 minutes before ex "
