Parasol 20 + From £17.99
Parasol 20 is a unique silicone based lotion specially formulated for fair skin, childrens skin and vulnerable parts of the body. Thanks to its extreme durability to water and perspiration, it is ideal for use when swimming.
Parasol UVA/UVB filters provide 20 times more natural protection against UVB rays as well as helping to protect against sunburn and long term UVA induced skin damage, while still allowing tanning.
An Active Anti Ageing System including herbal extracts may help reinforce the skin's natural UV rays defences against fine lines and wrinkles and neutralises cell damaging free radicals.
Parasol is enriched with moisturisers to help prevent peeling and to leave your skin silky smooth. And because it doesn't leave sticky residue, it is ideal for sandy beaches.
Remember you can still burn:
The right protection:
Young children, especially under three years, should not be exposed to direct sunlight and care should be taken with children playing in the water, as water reflects sunlight increasing the risk of sunburn.
It is essential that you select the right protection product to protect you skin from the sun's ultra violet rays.
There are two sunrays that can cause damage to your skin - UVA and UVB - and which are attributed to sunburn and premature ageing.
When you are selecting your sun protection product it is important that you choose the right sun protection factor number (SPF) for your skin type.
A SPF is a measurement of the UVB rays and identifies the sun protection time. To calculate your safe sun tanning time simply multiply your own natural protection time by the SPF number.
For example if your skin burns after approximately 15 minutes exposure to the sun without a sun protection product then multiply this time by the SPF.
15 minutes x product with SPF 10 = 150 minutes of protection.

This sun protecter is so good!! I tried it through recommendation for my boys and so glad I did. Have been buying it now for about the last 8 years. We holiday in Cyprus in the hottest months and it really does protect you from burning. Just make sure you follow the instructions when applying. Would definitely recommend! The added bonus of Factor 20 is once opened is last 18 months.

My cousin from Ireland introduced this to me 2 years ago and I'm glad that online ordering is now available. I like it because it is oil based. Unlike any oher sunscreens they are so creamy and thick and I usually get breakouts or whiteheads after days of use. This one doesn't make your skin oily despite its nature. This is is perfect for my asian skin. I super love it. I'm 40 and for the first time I found a sunscreen that really works for me.

Thank goodness our local pharmacist recommended this fabulous product to us. We've been using it for years now and never got sunburned since. Previously we'd tried loads of different products as a few of the family suffered from Prickly heat. Parasol is fantastic, no adverse reaction whatsoever and we all get a good healthy suntan that lasts with no burning or peeling.

We now use this sunscreen living in Cyprus after it was recommended to us last summer by a friend visiting for 5 weeks. She had used it throughout her stay on her very fair skin and had not burned at all and actually had a light tan which is unusual for her colouring ! We spend a lot of time outdoors and need a product that is reliable and easy to use - this fits the bill completely. There's no need to reapply even in strong sun so long as you apply it carefully in the first place and 30 mins before going out into the sun. It dries quickly (unlike some other similar sunscreens)and doesn't stain our clothes or towels (which had been ruined by P20 previously).

This suncare range is amazing - fabulous in Australian climate. It provides total protection in and out of the water without needing to be a thick, white paste that can ruin clothing. I love it, wish it was available in every chemist. I recommend it every opportunity I have so that others can enjoy the summer Oz days without fear of health issues.
