Our Certified 100% Natural Sunscreen SPF 30 for Face and Body is now ON SALE!
In April of 2011, when Karl Van Connant and his fellow climbers used this MelanSol® SPF 30 to protect their skin during an ascent of Mt. Everest, in the Himalayas of Nepal. "MelanSol® was unbelievable," said Van Connant. "We all slathered it on our face, lips, and hands 3 times a day and nobody got sunburned or even a blister on their lips. Even the Sperpa's loved using it!" The team reached the 20,000+ ft.elevation before having to turn back due to the time left on their visas. The record for MelanSol protection is held by Swiss Alpinist Hansruedi Wirth, during his ascent to the 26,484 Ft. peak of Annapurna IV, in the Himalayas of Nepal, in 2006. Wirth used MelanSol® SPF 18.
This story illustrates how powerfully protective our natural bio-active antioxidants can be when combined with active ingredients, like zinc oxide or titanium dioxide, during extreme exposure to sunlight. Be advised that our SPF 30 sunscreen is NOT DESIGNED FOR CASUAL EVERYDAY USE. Our SPF 10 or 20 are more suited for daily use, depending on your activity and potential risk for sunburn.
The MelanSol® Difference:
On top of your skin--Active ingredients provide Broad Spectrum reflection of the sun's rays--safely reflects 97% of UV rays away from your skin.
Within your skin--A unique combination of 3 natural bioactive antioxidants continually work to neutralize free radicals that form during sun exposure, before they cause oxidative stress that leads to sunburn and skin aging damage.
We recommended this SPF 30 for VERY FAIR SKIN that always burns and never tans, during periods of lengthy or extreme sun exposure, when sunburn risk is high.
See our new SKIN TYPE CHART for recommendations on all MelanSol® Sunscreens.
