Over the years much has been written about sunscreen, suncare and sun safety. In the last year, sunscreen has become a hot and topical topic (no pun intended) and a wave of press is trying to change and educate people on sun safety. The problem is the message is still unclear: SPF 15, 30, 45, 60, 85, 100+++, if it's bigger it must be better?
Many people still don't know that SPF (Sun Protection Factor) is based only on the UVB rays and is for a measure of time, ie. SPF 30 gives you 30x more protection than not wearing any sunscreen. The UVB rays are the rays that give you the sunburn, think of UV B "burning" rays. We now know that UVA rays mutate cells and aid in the breakdown of collagen, the elasticity of your skin and cause skin cancer. UV A "aging" rays. There are only a few ingredients that protect from "broad spectrum" UVA - Zinc oxide, Titanium dioxide, Avobenzone (or Parsol 1789) and Mexoryl.
The new wave, or "green washing," of sunscreens all make claims like: Natural, All Natural, Natural UV, All Mineral, Chemical free, Non-chemical, Without Chemical, Organic, Inorganic and Natural Organic. Everyone is looking to protect their skin as safely as possible, but buying a product that claims to be "all natural" is misleading. One of the few natural sunscreens: mud, mud works as a natural sunscreen but it doesn't look very nice on your skin.
To make inorganic Zinc and Titanium small enough to go on your skin without leaving major residue, companies use "nanotechnology" involving a chemical and mechanical process. There are groups now that want to ban the use of nanotechnology, stating that the minerals are so small they can get past the skin and into the blood causing DNA damage. There are other groups that say nanotechnology is safe; it's hard to know who is right and who is wrong and who's behind each study. Tests are still ongoing to evaluate the safety of all sunscreen ingredients.
So, Organic, Inorganic, Physical, Mineral and Chemical, there's good and bad, but in the case of sunscreen, the health benefits far outweigh any potential (and unproven) health risks.
The one true and proven guarantee doctors, dermatologists, plastic surgeons and all other medical practitioners agree on is that the sun is helpful but is also very deadly with the potential for skin cancer. Getting burnt is very uncomfortable, hinders performance for athletes and isn't very good for your mental well being with all the pain, peeling, aging and potential for skin cancer. It's also very dangerous for children and increases their chance of skin cancer later in life.
In 1999, the FDA came out with a "new" monograph (new regulations) for sunscreen, and while it was right on the mark for some areas, but failed to address UVA. It read that nothing could be packaged to read higher than SPF 30+ (following the Australian standards [the most mature suncare market in the world]) and the terms "Natural", "Non-chemical" and "Chemical free" are false and misleading in the labeling of OTC sunscreen drug products. It also stated that products could not say "All Day protection," "Waterproof" or "8 hour waterproof."
The problem was that companies like KINeSYS followed this monograph but many of the major brands did not, as it meant taking all the SPF 45, 50, 60, 70++++ off the shelves. The major brands lobbied against this monograph and many, many years later still sell the higher SPF's.
There is a new proposed 2009 monograph, since the 1999 one was never fully adopted, that is now in the FDA's hands. This monograph contemplates ratings for UVA, which is wonderful, but it allows manufacturers to go as high as SPF 50+? This goes directly against their earlier wisdom, causing many to wonder: is this just succumbing to the pressure of the lobbying?
Bottom line, as a human being you have the opportunity to make a choice: BURN or PROTECT? You choose and then find what that works for you: a cream, a spray, UV clothing or just staying in the house. It's up to you, but find something you are comfortable with and will USE and keep protected. Go out, enjoy the outdoors!
In 1993, Jeff Kletter's doctor made matters simple: shape up or die young. So, he hired Josie, a personal fitness trainer to coach him back to health. During their workouts, Jeff complained about his sore muscles and how pain relief products simply don't work. Josie joked, perhaps we should make a formula especially for you. And they did. It was the first product and the birth of KINeSYS.
With the strong chemistry between them, they quit their jobs, sold their belongings, and began a new partnership in business and in life. They recruited a chemist with 30 years experience to formulate a line of products designed to meet the rigors of professional athletes. They then drafted Dr. Doug Clement, a leading sports medicine physician, to help develop the products and chair a scientific advisory board. Dr. Clement noted that top athletes had a lower incidence of most disease except one- Skin Cancer- which was higher in athletes due their prolonged exposure to the sun while training or competing.
KINeSYS Sunscreen - For the active individual who demands the highest performance from their sunscreen.
Countless tests and trials have led to the KINeSYS line of Performance Sunscreens, which exceed the requirements of professional athletes and active individuals regardless of skill or age. This gives Jeff and Josie complete confidence when using KINeSYS on their family. KINeSYS products meet the high quality standards they have as new parents and will effectively satisfy the demands of any athlete.
