Waterproof sunblock SPF 30
Prevent sun damage
DAMAGE due to sunlight occurs from incidental exposure during daily
activities. Wherever there is light, there is UV ( ultraviolet ) radiation.
And where there is UV radiation, there is the potential for harm to the
In urban landscapes, people are exposed to more than just sun light itself.
Light also reflects off of metal, glass and concrete. Exposure from going
indoors and out, exposure from light coming through building and car windows
( unless they're specifically treated with UV filters ), and even exposure
thin clothing, all adds up.
One serious sunburn can increase the risk of skin cancer by as much as 50%.
Damage caused by the sun is cumulative and shows up later as signs of
ageing, or in worse case scenarios, as skin cancer. Ninety-five per cent of
all skin cancers are found on light exposed areas such as the face, top of
the ears, neck and chest.
Primitive versions of physical sunscreens have been around for centuries.
Chemical sunscreens have been in use since the early 1920s but early
versions were greasy, irritating, staining, and could not be made
into water resistant formulas.
Basic features for choosing sunscreen are:

Free radicals are unstable molecules that erode tissue through a process
called oxidation. When an apple slice turns brown or a steel beam rusts,
those too are examples of oxidation. Free radical formation is not just an
isolated event either, because free radicals generate more free radicals,
thus establishing a cascade of deterioration.
Pomegranate extract contains the extraordinarily powerful polyphenol ellagic
acid, a highly efficient free radical scavenger. Ellagic acid has also been
studied for its healing benefits and anti-cancer benefits.
Noted for its versatility, pomegranate extract offers antioxidant benefits
and protection both topically as well as internally in supplement form.
In addition to its healing benefits, pomegranate extract -- whether applied
topically or taken internally-has the unique ability to improve the SPF
power of sunscreen.
As the first to incorporate Pomegranate technology into topical skincare,
Dr. Murad developed the highly effective Age-Proof Suncare products.
Pomegranate's SPF enhancing abilities allow him to use fewer topical
chemical sunscreens while still maintaining the desired levels of SPF
