HOW SUN PROTECTION WORKS

Using sun protection works in a number of ways:

• Filtering the sun's rays. To allow the necessary amount of sun's rays to act on the skin according to the skin's tolerance, phototype, etc.

• Action against free radicals. The sun's rays generate free radicals, which lead to the deterioration of cell functions and speed up the appearance of wrinkles. Sun protection should contain combinations of vitamins to eliminate these radicals.

• Moisturising. Exposure to the sun dehydrates the skin, so the skin should be moisturised before being exposed to the sun. This is why sun protection should contain moisturising products and natural oils.

 

 CHOOSING THE RIGHT PROTECTION FACTOR

The sun protection factor or sun protection index is a figure that shows the time that someone can be exposed to the sun without burning.

It's a multiplier of the time that someone can stay out in the sun without getting burnt. In other words, if you can withstand half an hour without any damage, a UV protector with sun protection factor four will allow you to stay out in the sun for two hours (four times more).

You should choose protection factor according to your phototype, i.e. the individual physical characteristics that have an influence on the skin's reaction to the sun's rays.

GALIUS SUN PROTECTION RANGE

GALIUS SUN CREAMS are designed with a high SPF to protect skin exposed to the sun over many hours or in the middle part of the day.

Outdoor sports call for a great deal of effort, which generates a lot of internal heat, and lead to heavy sweating. The Galius technical department has analysed this situation in detail and we have created a range of sun protection products with the following competitive advantages:

 1)    Sweat resistant.

2)    Non-greasy.

3)    Easy to absorb to prevent sweat from creating a barrier to the sun's rays which subsequently burns and marks the skin.

This range is also complemented by the Pre-Competition Spray and Aftersun Spray.

GALIUS SUN PRE-COMPETITION SPRAY: Before doing any sport, it is advisable to warm up beforehand to prevent muscle injury. Sometimes we just don't have enough time or motivation to do it.

 The Pre-Competition Spray offers a dual advantage:

 1)     Designed to warm up muscles in a short space of time and minimise the risk of muscle injury.

2)  Sun protection factor 30.

GALIUS SUN AFTERSUN: Both the cooling effect after sun and the normal after sun provide the skin with after sun protection based on vegetable extracts.

After great physical effort, the muscles need to relax in a short time period. At Galius, we have developed a cooling effect after sun to cool muscles down while refreshing, soothing and nourishing skin that has been exposed to the sun.

In short, Galius Sun offers a complete range for times of physical activity, whether it's to warm up, protect yourself from UVA/UVB rays during exercise or refresh yourself after an intense day of physical exercise.

GALIUS SUN SPF 30 and SPF 50 SUN CREAM

It is widely known that too much sun can be harmful. The sun's action causes burns, ageing and skin disorders. Some of these harmful effects can be seen in people who practice long-lasting outdoor sports or activities, such as running, cycling, hiking, golf, rowing, etc.

Nowadays it's possible to enjoy all the sun's goodness with peace of mind through the consistent use of quality sun protection designed for these sportspeople.

GALIUS SUN protection offers a great many benefits:

• It provides a broad spectrum of skin protection against the sun's rays.

• It prevents skin disorders caused by overexposure to UVA and UVB rays.

• It prevents the appearance of sun spots.

• It prevents premature ageing of the skin.

• It prevents the consequences of the cumulative effect of the sun's rays on the skin.

The SPF50 and SPF30 sun creams are especially sweat-resistant, with a UVA/UVB sun filter, high sun protection, non-greasy and undetectable during exercise.

 GALIUS SUN FACIAL SPF 30 and SPF 50 CREAM

The face and body have different skin types and colours. Face products have the necessary components for more sensitive and delicate care.

The skin on the body is thicker and more resistant to the environment, so it should be protected using different products.

Due to this, the GALIUS R+D department has designed a range of sun protection for the different parts of the body.

Snow and sweat enhance the action of the sun on the face. As a result, we have developed this sun protection, whose formulation means that it doesn't run on the face, so preventing it from getting into the eyes.

A light product with no greasy feeling.

 GALIUS SUN PRE-COMPETITION WARM UP CREAM

with added SPF 30 SUN PROTECTION

GALIUS SUN pre-competition cream with SPF 30 is recommended when you need a warm-up in a short space of time for outdoor activities.

With warming effect and created especially for sports people, it is highly sweat-resistant.

Thanks to its composition, the areas treated warm up shortly after application, so increasing work capacity. It is the ideal product for warming up on days with a good temperature and, due to the SPF 30 protection. it protects the skin from the harmful effects of the sun's rays. The skin may occasionally redden due to the warming effect, but this will subsequently go.

It is a NON-GREASY product. Due to its composition, it offers greater resistance to sweat as it has been designed for sportspeople. Easily absorbed.

METHYL NICOTINATE. This is the base component in this product. Due to its properties as a blood vessel dilator and rubefacient, it increases blood circulation in the area of application.

CHEMICALS:

In its composition, this product includes a component used to increase resistance to any liquid, basically sweat and/or water, which is a mix of water with hydrolysed esters of jojoba oil.

It comes in the form of a semi-transparent gel with a high pH. It is a natural film-forming agent that has a significant waterproofing effect, comparatively higher than water-resistant acylic polymers, and that provides long-term moisturising.

This compound is not oily to the touch. In vivo studies show that a proportion of 1% of this compound provides greater resistance to liquids than other products of similar characteristics. In developing the range, Galius Sun considered increasing the proportion to get better and greater resistance to liquids.

In vivo tests were conducted on a representative group of sportspeople involved in outdoor sports. The fifty volunteers practised jogging, cycling, golf, etc., and they were treated with sun protectors by other brands and Galius Sun protection, the effectiveness of which was checked through reproducing conditions of use:

1. Tests were conducted comparing the resistance of various components included in the formulation of the sun protectors to both sweet water and salt water in varying percentages. Since sweat is the result of the release of mineral salts by the body, we were interested in applying components where the sun protector had a high resistance to salt water.
