How does it do this? Rather than simply sitting on top of the skin it forms a protective barrier that enhances your skin’s natural defences by spreading through the top layer of skin. This means EVY doesn’t rub off when you towel dry, or wash off when you’re swimming or sweating.
The benefit? You get very long-lasting protection against both UVA and UVB rays.
And there’s another bonus. EVY products also protect your skin from environmental stressors such as heat, wind and water stress as well as skin irritants such as chlorinated or salty water, algae, or soap.
EVY has been developed for sensitive and hypersensitive skin and is recommended by dermatologists. (Of course, it’s great for normal skin too!)
The Vitiligo Association has nominated EVY Sunscreen Mousse as the safest sunscreen product on the market for its members. They are also recommended for people with sun eczema, sun allergies and albinism.
Because of its hypoallergenic formulation EVY is a good choice for those whose skin can’t tolerate conventional sunscreens, It is very gentle and the entire range is safe for small children, though we do not recommend lower SPF than 30 for children under 16 years of age.
You’re covered – for face and body, and hair!
The mousse absorbs and dries quickly, is completely odourless, leaves no white residue and won’t clog your pores.
An added bonus is that you can even use it on your hair to protect it and your scalp – a very important point for people with thining hair or receding hairlines.
In addition, as we know, sun protection is vital in protecting the skin from premature ageing, but EVY goes the extra mile by fortifying the products with fortified with moisturisers, vitamins, silk extracts and collagen to counteract the suns damaging effects on the skin.
Our mousse is value for money. It last roughly twice as long compared to conventional creams – a 150ml bottle is the equivalent of about twice that in lotion. It’s quickly absorbed, making it easier to use the right amount of sunscreen, compared to a cream. The aerosol pack is never opened to the elements and is therefore kept germ-free and fresh until the bottle is finished.
EVY technology contains several different sun filters. The concentration of each filter is low, but because its formulatd well each ingredient interacts well to offer maximum effectiveness against both UVA and UVB rays – a fact that has earned it a 5* UVA rating.
Our sunscreen has been tested and approved by authorities including official EU bodies. Our products use Proderm Technology and give extra high and stable protection against UVA rays. These are the rays associated with premature skin ageing.
The SPF rating relates to UVB protection, for example SPF30. We follow Boots’ standard for UVA and give the highest possible protection: 5 stars.
EVY Sunscreen Mousse was chosen as the official sunscreen on the EF boats in the Whitbread ‘Around The World’ (now Volvo Ocean Race) for the nine months the crew were at sea. Robinson, Axa Adidas multisport team and the Swedish team in the Atlantic Rowing Race are some of the other elite athletes who have chosen to use our products in tough conditions.
The gentle formula also makes it suitable for very young ones, from the age of 6 months onwards.
This skin preparation has a wide area of applications, even against corrosive substances such as concentrated acid and for treatment / protection against nickel allergy. It is beneficial to use as a carrier for active ingredients, such as sunscreens, skin aneasthetics, fungicidal agents, bactericides etc.
The base formula creates an ‘osmotic membrane’, i.e. a semi-permeable membrane in the skin. It protects skin against the effects of harmful substances and also helps the skin to recover from any damage. The formula contains both lipophilic and hydrophilic components. Thanks to this, the formula works simultaneously on several levels in the skin. This two dimensional filter membrane reinforces the skin’s natural properties instead of adding extra substances to the skin to relieve symptoms.
The formula’s lipophilic components prevent immediate contact between water and water-soluble substances and the treated skin’s hydrophilic parts, thus preventing drying of the skin. During use hydrophilic centres also appear in the lipophilic regions in such a way that normal sweating has basically no effect and, through the osmotic membrane, the skin’s natural ability to maintain an even balance between outflows and inflows (of e.g. moisture and heat) is restored. The formulation of this invention doesn’t add any excess oil to the skin and is therefore completely smudge-proof and free from any feeling of residues left behind. At the same time it penetrates deeper into the skin, which consequently has a more deep-acting effect than traditional skin creams. Another great advantage is that the continues for a long time, even after washing.
EVY’s core formula is a patented, technological discovery, which spreads across the entire outer layer of skin instead of staying on the surface, which many traditional sun creams do. For this reason, EVY doesn’t rinse off with water, sweat or towel drying and gives effective protection for up to 6 hours, (unlike a lot of other sun creams which recommend re-applying every other hour).
EVY’s fluffy, easily-applied mousse makes it easy to achieve the recommended sun protection level and a can lasts around twice as long compared to the same amount in cream. Ordinary sunscreen lotions recommend 35-40 ml for a full body application. Sprays do not tell you how much you need! A 150ml can of Evy provides enough mousse for about 10 adult, full body applications.
The core formula strengthens the skin’s natural protection barrier and helps the skin to retain moisture and resist irritations, even in testing situations with strong sunlight, wind, and salty water. The core formula also helps the skin to protect itself against various chemicals found in chlorinated water and strong soaps, for example. For this reason, a lot of people who suffer from various types of contact allergies (such as nickel or water allergy) have seen an improvement from regular use of EVY. It is also is non-greasy and can be used around the eyes, on the scalp and even on the lips.
