At what age can iS CLINICAL sunscreens be used?
The iS CLINICAL sunscreens may be used for ages 6 months and older. Children have delicate skin, so sun avoidance and wearing appropriate clothing should be practiced. As babies explore their environment orally, and we not recommend the ingestion of any IS CLINICAL® products, all children under the age of 6 months should have sunscreen recommendations discussed with their physician.
Can iS CLINICAL products protect the skin from blue light damage?
Many iS CLINICAL products may help protect against blue light. Blue light, also termed HEV light or high energy visible light, damages skin via free radical mechanisms. Blue light is found in sunlight, especially during the early morning hours, and it also emanates from personal device screens such as cell phones, computers, and televisions. There are many ingredients within many iS CLINICAL products that can improve this situation. Extreme Protect SPF 40 being one of them.
What does the term “SPF” mean?
This is a number, also called “sun protection factor” that measures the amount of sun protection conveyed by a sunscreen. We would always recommend a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.
Why is an expiration date on iS Clinical sunscreens?I thought sunscreens could be used for many years.
It is an FDA requirement, as well as many other government bodies, that all SPF products are labeled with drug facts/active ingredient information, including expiration dates. The expiration date printed on the product package insures that the active ingredients in a product retain their optimal efficacy. We do not recommend using products past their expiration date.
How much sunscreen should I apply?
Sunscreen should be applied to all body areas not covered by clothing. About one (1) ounce is the right amount to use for the entire body. Approximately one (1) teaspoon will adequately cover the head and neck. Most people apply inadequate amounts of sunscreen for proper solar protection. If engaging in outdoor activity, such as sports, swimming, sunbathing, or any time spent near water and or perspiring, reapplication should occur every 40minutes.
