Sun Protection Conference London

June 9th to 10th, 2015, London, United Kingdom

Can Nature help us to develop future sun protection strategies? The first sunscreens protected against sun burning and were essentially UVB protectants with low factors that allowed easy tanning of the skin. Modern sunscreen products may still provide highly heterogeneous attenuation of the sun’s rays not necessarily consistent with the quality of electromagnetic radiation experienced in Nature. As an industry we have been driven by the quantity of protection as indicated by the SPF and not necessarily the quality of protection. A level of UVA protection is now a requirement for most markets worldwide, but is this sufficient in terms of quality and quantity of broad spectrum protection? Are there other wavelengths that we should consider in our protection strategies? What does natural protection tell us about the biological need? Following the theme of the conference this year, we will explore and re-examine sun product development strategies in terms of quality of protection, natural substances and human behavior. In addition, internationally renowned expert speakers have been invited to give an update on sun care technology, testing and worldwide regulations affecting the development, testing, and promotion of sun products.
