Surfersskin™ spf 50+ Sunscreen

July 11, 2018 / Murray Steward


 Surfersskin Spf50+ Suncream: Developed ten years ago as a mineralised spf30+ sunscreen to meet the extreme conditions of New Zealand summers in the water, this new spf50+ organic formulation is a major new advance in sunscreen technology from Extreme New Zealand.

Surfersskin is Ultra Protection in a new Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ formulation demanded by the highest sun protection standards in the World. Surfersskin is an organic formulation, made to exceptional standards. Demanding new sunscreen standards by the authorities in New Zealand and Australia, together with extreme conditions in and out of the water in both countries (especially in the UVA range of the spectrum) produces what is probably the finest protection for outdoor and sports lovers. Ever.

For Sportsmen in and out of the water, this sunscreen cream had to be highly sweat resistant, and  for those in the water naturally very highly water resistant. (We cannot claim waterproof – neither can watch makers.)  It had to be broad spectrum, with both UVA and UVB protection (highly protective Surfersskin has an extremely high sun protection factor (SPF) of over 65), and it had to exceed all current world standards including the severe American FDA. It had to be friendly to all skin types – no stinging eyes, no white patches, no visible signs – it had to smell good, rub on easily and go clear, and be safe to use. Surfersskin is all of these. After independent laboratory testing in Australia, Surfersskin can claim to have Very High UVA protection, Very High UVB protection, and Very high Water Resistance. You cannot claim higher standards under current legislation.

Surfersskin is a paraben free, non-allergenic, PABA free, gluten free, nano-particle free, non-sticky, non-greasy cream instantly absorbed and made from the latest and safest organic materials in the world. It contains no micro or nano-particles, is safe for all skin types and completely non-reactive. Surfersskin contains pro-active Manuka Honey UMF 18+, renowned for its antiseptic and healing properties, and Aloe Vera; both known as anti-inflammatory and effective moisturisers. It’s great for your skin, and your total peace of mind. Use with our unique wind & sun protecting and moisturising spf30+ lipbalm for total facial protection.

Extreme sunshine and UVA/UVB penetrating rays, and the high rates of skin cancer in the Southern Hemisphere requires sun creams that meet the demanding protection needed. From the same company that produced the best-selling Kidsskin, Surfersskin is now used as the first choice sunscreen on all UK beaches by the RNLI.  Like the world-renowned #1 selling Golfersskin, Surfersskin was the result of years of research into a sunscreen that water lovers could safely use, that would meet their personal standards while at the same time offering secure, long-lasting and trustworthy protection.

  • Surfersskin exceeds the world’s highest Sunscreen standard – the AS/NZS 2604:2012. (Available on request).
  • Surfersskin has the approval of the International Melanoma Foundation.
  • Surfersskin tested in vivo (live tissue testing) at an spf of 66. This is as high as sunscreen rationally gets, and as high as legally allowed in Australia and New Zealand. Claims of spf 100 are spurious at best, fraudulent at worse.
  • We do not use animals for testing.
  • Surfersskin has shown to be effective in water for up to four hours. Its just we cannot claim that. Legally, all sunscreens in New Zealand and Australia can claim a maximum of 40 minutes water use before re-applying. This is NOT the standard in the UK or the EU, where there is no limit on the hours claimed. This is both highly misleading and a standard that is impossible to maintain, or prove.

SURFERSSKIN™ MOISTURISING & NOURISHING:  Apart from world-class broad spectrum sun protection with a safe, spf50+ waterproof, sweat proof formulation, The Unique Ingredient Combination within our formula provides many skin care benefits to water users in addition to serious sun protection.

Manuka Honey: New Zealand Grade UMF 18+. This uniquely New Zealand healer has extraordinary skin benefits – hydrating, moisturising, nourishing, healing, rejuvenating and protecting. New Zealand Graded Manuka Honey is scientifically and medically proven to:

  • Accelerate skin healing
  • Remove harmful bacteria and sterilise infections
  • Stimulate new healthy skin growth
  • Lower incidence of disfiguring scars including acne scars
  • Offer strong anti-inflammatory properties
  • Offer strong anti-oxidant support to help fight free radical damage.

Vitamin E:   Vitamin E is one of the primary anti-oxidants used in Surfersskin.  This combined with UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum sunscreen in Surfersskin assists in preserving the skin’s barrier function which helps to maintain over all skin health.

Vitamin A:  Vitamin A is a great anti-aging nutrient.  When combined with UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum in Surfersskin sunscreen your skin re builds and rejuvenates – keeping lines, wrinkles, dull skin and other anti-aging symptoms at bay.

Aloe Vera:  Aloe Vera is renowned for its many medicinal benefits.  Combined with UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum sunscreen in Surfersskin it helps to increase the strength and synthesis of the skin tissue making it a vital ingredient in Surfersskin sunscreen.

Safe and suitable for all sensitive skins – in the three years on sale we have not had a single reported allergic reaction to this sun cream. Kidsskin. Probably the safest and best sunscreen you can buy for your children. Follow the use instructions for happy, sunny days – and painless nights!
