A SECOND-SKIN SUNSCREEN

You know that sunscreen is the very–bloody–best anti–ageing product out there. So we won’t bore you with the scary stats on just how very naughtily responsible that big, bright orb in the sky is when it comes to prematurely ageing your skin (around 80% responsible, so say the lab coats). Or the fact that we hold one of the highest rates of skin cancer on the planet (still).

No, let’s speak of more positive, happy developments—like the fact that this new invisi-screen will be our most-important accessory for Summer 2016/17. For this humble little bottle belies the skin-saving superpowers it holds within; it looks like a mist yet acts like an invisible coat of armour, slaying those awfully ageing UVA/B rays for four hours straight while you’re doing more interesting things. It may be undetectable on the skin but it stays in place, resisting sweat, surf, and incidental splashing by men on oversized inflatable flamingoes.

In fact, Sunbrella may seem so very elegant and innovative that you might think it to be the genius of a Nobel Prize-winning scientist and his lab team in Kyoto but it’s not. It’s loudly and proudly made in Melbourne, by women for women. #MECCAmade.
