Here are four very important tips to obtain the best results when using Safe Sea sunscreen:

  • Apply at least 30 minutes before exposure to the sun or the first bath.
  • Spread the sunscreen generously over the whole body. The skin should be completely dry when applying the product.
  • Do not leave any areas unprotected: a jellyfish will discharge its stinging cells with the minimum of contact.
  • What quantity should be applied? To evaluate the effectiveness of a sunscreen’s SPF for any individual skin type, it should be tested, by applying 2mg/cm2 of product to the back. A typical adult, 1,70m tall needs approximately 30ml of sunscreen of appropriate SPF to complete body coverage. Less will not provide appropriate solar protection.
  • To ensure correct application we would recommend following the “7 Teaspoon Rule” created by a dermatologist. This recommends applying a teaspoonful (of Safe Sea) to each of the seven parts of the body (i.e. legs, arms, torso, back & face):
