EVY SPF 50 – 100ml
An excellent sun protection mousse for people with very sensitive skin as well as for those who are taking on tough conditions such as ocean waves or extreme sports. EVY Sunscreen SPF 50 is enriched with antioxidants that help to prevent and counteract skin damage caused by the sun. All our products are ideal for use on the face as they are non-sticky and don’t clog pores. SPF 50 blocks about 98% of UVB rays when the recommended amount is applied.
- Apply before skin is exposed to sun.
- Shake well before use, turn the bottle upside down.
- One handful is sufficient for protection for one arm, the size of a golf ball for an adult’s face.
- Press the mousse between your hands to a more liquid form. Spread evenly and generously over the skin. Wait a few minutes until the mousse is dry before swimming or putting on clothes. Should be non-sticky after 5-10 mins. Otherwise you may have used too much.
- Sparing use noticeably reduces protection.

A sunscreen’s effectiveness is determined by things such as how much you sweat, whether you’re swimming and also the UV index. We carry out different efficiency tests for different formulations. Water tests in a laboratory environment show that our SPF 50 still has an SPF of 35 after 8 hours. This is based on exposure to water for 20 minutes followed by 15 minutes of drying time, repeated for a total of 480 minutes. These results are very impressive. However, excessive long-term exposure to the sun always involves risks, as no products can provide total sun protection. Since a lot of people do not apply enough of the product, frequent application is recommended, although that won’t help if you’re already sunburnt. In that situation, you should stay out of the sun.
Will I tan if I use a high SPF?
You certainly can, and if you have light or sensitive skin, a sunscreen with a high SPF is key to achieving an even and long-lasting tan. At the first sign of any damage, your skin immediately begins to regenerate and remove the damaged skin. After only a few days, the damaged skin begins to flake off and new, pink skin emerges. EVY protects the skin against damage and allows the melanin to develop a beautiful, brown, long-lasting tan. It takes about 48 hours for pigments caused by the sun to reach the surface. In fact, you shouldn’t get red at all, as that is a sign that you’ve burnt your skin. When you get a tan quickly, in just a couple of days, you activate the melanin in the epidermis. But that kind of tan disappears quickly. In other words, it’s not worth damaging your skin just to get a quick tan. Instead, start off with a high SPF factor and slowly lower it as your tan deepens.
What do I do if I don’t want to get any darker or have dark pigmentation?
We are constantly surrounded by UVA radiation, regardless of the weather, which stresses cells and makes melanin darker. But this doesn’t change the body’s level of melanin and it prevents additional tanning. You need UVB radiation, i.e. sunshine, to increase the body’s production of melanin, which is what gives you a genuine tan. So the best way to avoid getting an even darker tan is to use a sunscreen with a high SPF. If you want to even out pigmentation or avoid premature ageing, you should use a good UVA sunscreen, regardless of whether the sun is shining or not. UVA rays make up 95% of visible light and are able to pass through glass. Our products provide extra strong protection against UVA radiation, according to Boots Star Rating Test. The test measures the ratio between UVA protection and the SPF protection indicated on the label and we’ve achieved a 5-star rating, meaning the highest possible protection against UVA radiation. This means that EVY is classified as a broad-spectrum sunscreen. In addition to choosing a long-lasting and stable sunscreen, you can combine it with substances like vitamin C and other pigment-inhibiting substances. Apply them first, followed by sunscreen.
