Boots to stop making lower SPF sunscreen
Boots has said it will no longer produce Soltan sun protection products with SPF lower than SPF50 for children and SPF15 for adults.
In the first year of its sun safety partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support, the health and beauty retailer said it is making the move to help customers to stay protected in the sun and encourage sun safe behaviour.
Clare O’Connor, Boots Soltan Suncare expert, explained: “Through our partnership with Macmillan, we’re committed to taking action to improve sun safety. We know that using sun screen is one of the main methods of keeping skin protected in the sun, so we want to support our customers to make a simple switch to protect their skin with higher SPF with UVA protection. This is particularly important for children, whose skin is more vulnerable to sun damage, so we want to help parents in choosing the highest protection available.”
Soltan will continue to focus on educating children about the importance of sun safety through its Sun Ready Schools programme, which provides materials and guidance for teachers to use in schools.
Boots also offers an in-store mole scanning service which provides an assessment of concerning moles or pigmented lesions.
