The Sun's Rays
Although the colour of tanned skin is associated with good health, the sun can cause skin disorders. The sun's rays that a body receives are made up of different types of rays that have different influences on our skin:
INFRARED RAYS. These rays give a sensation of heat, but they don't burn and create a reddening of the skin caused by the blood vessels dilating. This reddening disappears after a few hours.
UVB RAYS. These rays penetrate the epidermis, where they stimulate the melanocytes, which causes tanning, which is nothing more than the skin's natural way of protecting itself. Overexposure to UVB rays causes burns, which appear as reddening of the skin for a few days. Overexposure to these rays is a risk factor in the development of skin cancer.
UVA RAYS. UVA rays cause
immediate tanning, leading to weak pigmentation after a few hours. Overexposure to these rays leads to premature ageing of the skin and an increased risk of contracting skin cancer

Since 1995, GALIUS has been very closely linked to professional athletes involved in all outdoor sport.
Based on the needs described by customers to the technical department, GALIUS SUN developed a range of sun protectors especially designed for people working, training or competing in the sun for a long periods and/or during the middle part of the day.
After a several years of trials and tests, the company brought out GALIUS SUN, which represents one of the best sun protection range of products on the market today and designed for sports people.
With the company’s focus on sports and exercise the extensive range is now being used by many top athletes and
professional teams, such as the UK Pro Cycle Team Raleigh, the MoviStar
International Pro Cycle Team four times World Duathlon Champion Cat Morrison, National Cross Country Champion Gemma Steel, British Record holder for the hammer Sophie Hitchon, U23 200/400 GB sprinter Emily Diamond and British 2012 Elite Duathlon Champion and European Long Distance Duathlon Champion Lucy Gossage.
Initially designed for cycle sport, with riders being under the sun's rays for many hours, and one in which huge physical effort is called for, cyclists need an extremely effective sun care range that protects their skin from UVA/UVB rays for many hours whilst exercising. GALIUS SUN protection products are ideal for all outdoor sports and leisure activities such as cycling, running, athletics, triathlon, rowing, hiking, cricket, skiing, climbing, snowboarding, sailing, volleyball, tennis, golf, angling, surfing, football, rugby and even lounging on the beach if that is your preferred sport !!
