Leading Canadian sunscreen brand provides trusted sun protection for Canadian families — rain or shine.
Spending time outdoors is an accessible way to reduce stress and stay physically active. But while absorbing some necessary vitamin D, it’s important to stay protected from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays, no matter the season.
Damaging UVA rays cause wrinkles, pigmentation disorders, and a loss of skin elasticity, while overexposure to UVB rays causes the skin to burn. Plus, both UVA and UVB rays can lead to skin cancer. Even when it’s cloudy, up to 80 percent of the sun’s rays still hit Earth.1
Using sunscreen, the right way, is key to enjoying time outside while reducing UV radiation exposure. It should be applied to all unclothed parts of the body 15 minutes prior to going into the sun and must be reapplied every two hours. It’s important to select a sunscreen that’s properly formulated for optimal protection. For trusted and proven UV ray defence, consider the number-one brand recommended by pharmacists and physicians since 1997: Ombrelle.
Formulas you can trust
Founded over thirty years ago by a Canadian dermatologist, Ombrelle is dedicated to helping everyone stay
safe under the sun. Their patented Mexoryl Technology creates Broad Spectrum UVA and UVB protection in a collection of formulations that are all hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, colourant-free, and cruelty-free. In addition, all products are recognized by the Canadian Dermatology Association.
Ombrelle is designed for families, with a product for every family member and moment under the sun, from Ombrelle Complete, a hypoallergenic body lotion for all purposes, to the Ombrelle Sports, a high protection lotion with 80-minute water and sweat resistance. There’s a reason why Ombrelle is the most recommended OTC brand by pharmacists and physicians for over two decades.
Options for anyone
For the little ones in the family, Ombrelle’s Kids sunscreen is water-resistant and can even be applied on wet skin. For parents looking for a non-chemical sunscreen, there’s Ombrelle SPF50+ Mineral, made with 100 percent mineral sun filters. For those looking for daily face protection (highly recommended), there is Ombrelle Face SPF 60. Not only is it non-greasy and non-comedogenic, but it’s also enriched with Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that helps maintain healthy skin.
