TRUTH ABOUT SPF
SPF protection does not increase proportionally with an increased SPF number. An SPF of 15 absorbs 93% of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet radiation, while an SPF of 30 absorbs 97%. That is only 4% more absorption of the sun’s harmful rays with an increase of 15 SPF. SPF 50? It absorbs 98% of the sun’s harmful rays.
The unique patented formulation of Sunsect is a waterproof oil-in-water emulsion that is designed to provide protection from the ravages of the sun while at the same time offering long lasting deterrence from biting insects.
The concept of SPF (Sun Protection Factor) was first proposed by Franz Greiter in 1946 as an attempt to measure the amount of time it would take an individual to burn with versus without sunscreen. For example, if a person generally burns after a UVB exposure of 20 minutes without sunscreen then if he wears an SPF 15 sunscreen he would burn only after 20 x 15 = 300 minutes!
You Need Sunscreen and DEET
In a nutshell, when a person is outside these days it is recommended that you should wear sunscreen daily to lower exposure to UV rays that can cause skin cancers like basal cell, Squamous cell skin cancer and melanoma and can result eventually in wrinkling and decreased elasticity of the skin (premature aging). Also, for most of the world, bug repellents are recommended (CDC) to prevent insect bourn illnesses like West Nile Virus, encephalitis, malarias, Dengue fever, and a lot other fevers.
DEET is very safe and as long as it is used as directed just like any other chemical. It should never be eaten and we don’t recommend inhalation. Below we compare the safety record of DEEET with other safe OTC products. As you can see, even with 30% of the population now using DEET with regularity, toxicity is rare and almost totally limited to skin reactions. Virtually all serious know DEET reactions have been in individuals after exceptionally frequent and high concentration use over long periods. No important toxicity has been seen in individuals who use DEET as directed. Additionally, our formulation is Sunsect appears to be even safer. After 15 + years of use by the US military on thousands of soldiers only a handful of minor skin reactions (15) or stinging eyes have been reported.
Consider these points:
It has been available for more than 50 years in the U.S. and has been studied more extensively than any other repellent ingredient.
It is the most widely used active ingredient in repellents worldwide and is unequalled when it comes to keeping mosquitoes, ticks, and other bugs away.
After completing a comprehensive re-assessment of DEET, EPA concluded that, as long as consumers follow label directions and take proper precautions, insect repellents containing DEET do not present a health concern. Click here to read the EPA RED on DEET.
The United States Army following its insect infested experience of jungle warfare during World War II developed DEET.
