A good solid day of work out in the sun can really feel great, however if you do not have the right sun protection you could end up with a lot of damage to your skin.  The sun’s rays have UVA and UVB radiation which are not good for anyone’s skin regardless if you are light-skinned or dark-skinned.  Skin damage from the sun is all the same.  It can range from slight sunburn to something as serious as skin cancer.  This is why people who visit the beach or play outside now and then are not those who are in the most danger.  

For those whose working time is primarily spent outdoors require better, stronger, and more efficient sunscreen than the kinds that are simply purchased at a grocery or drug store.  Additionally, most store bought sunscreens will require you to wait as long as 20 minutes before heading out into the sun. When your job demands that you be ready now, you cannot wait 20 minutes for your sunscreen to be viable.

Our sunscreen takes a vastly different approach.  You need to be ready to work in the sun immediately – so our industrial strength sunscreen is ready to work when you are.  It has no need to be absorbed into the skin like other sunscreens.  It includes ingredients that function in a wholly different way to keep UBV and UVA rays away from your skin.

Enter Natural Zinc Oxide   

You don’t have to worry about skin damage or skin cancer when the sun’s rays are simply reflected off your skin.  This is precisely what zinc oxide does.  Natural zinc oxide is one of the most important components to our sunscreen and has many benefits aside from its power to reflect the sun’s rays.  Beginning as a white powder, zinc oxide is blended into our sunscreen to eventually become a clear cream that is non-greasy, provides antioxidant power, and strong in vitamin E.  Simply smooth it on.  That’s it.  No wait.  No white smears to blend in. Nothing extra.  The zinc oxide sits on top of your skin instead of being absorbed and all of the particles act like tiny mirrors to bounce back the UVB and UVA rays; they never even get to touch your skin.

In fact, R&R Lotion’s industrial strength sunscreen with natural zinc oxide has been proven to be the best protection against the sun.  We even took things a step further and provided eco-friendly packaging to our sunscreen.  Several of our packaging options are made with recycled material for a greener earth.  Our packets are designed to be opened and closed, allowing them to be reusable at any given moment.

Understanding the Benefits   

A lot of people still underestimate the power of the sun when it comes to skin damage.  Not only do we offer a strong guard against the sun, we also strive to educate as many outside workers as possible about the dangers of sun exposure.  Many workers are outside for multiple days at a while whereas the average person is outside a few hours every day at most.  Constant exposure to the sun can be very dangerous even within a two or three hour period.  Sunburn can be very extreme if there is no precautions taken to keep the sun off of the skin, and can be a very painful problem that will only be compounded by continued sun exposure.

Applying a layer of zinc oxide sunscreen can stop all of these issues before they get a chance to start.  We have taken things a step further and currently work with the University of Arizona Skin Cancer Institute to help raise awareness, providing workers not only with important information about sun exposure, but also sunscreen stations. There is no reason to be without sunscreen ever again!
