SUNDAY GIVEAWAY: KINeSYS performance sunscreen

KINeSYS true performance sunscreen provides broad spectrum UVA AND UVB protection (we need both!), and its microspray applicator makes it easy to apply during activity. It is water & sweat-resistant, and oil-, alcohol-, PABA-, and preservative-free.

We love that their belief in an environmental awareness as part of a healthy lifestyle includes recyclable materials for packaging and non-aerosol spray pumps.


Having tested this sunscreen on my kids, I was completely amazed by the coverage it offered. We spent 8 hours at the beach, swimming, digging, and playing in the sun and the coverage was incredible. It is not greasy, and the spray packaging makes it easy to get onto wriggling children easily and quickly.

KINeSYS products are perfect for the whole family! This week, three lucky mamas will have the opportunity to choose their favorite one.

  3. I have no clue what the difference is but I am pale and do not tan along with my poor kiddos so I know we need any and all protection :)

  4. Yep, I'm with "The Hall Family". I'm pale and NEED protection!! But as for the difference, I have no clue. And I even saw a special report on the morning news about the difference in rays but forgot already...

  5. UVB causes sunburn and are from direct sun...also lead to skin cancer. UVA don't cause as much sunburn but does cause damage such as wrinkles, sunspots, etc, and you can get these rays even not in direct sun.

  10. I stole this answer from mercola.com.

    Consider UVB the 'good guy' -- though of course you can't de-select UVA if you're going to be in the sun. UVB helps your skin produce vitamin D.

    UVA is considered the 'bad guy' because it penetrates your skin more deeply and causes more free radical damage.

  11. I found the same answer as jennifer b. Thank you Dr. Mercola.


    UVB= good guy
    UVA= bad guy

    cheers

  21. UV radiation is part of the electromagnetic (light) spectrum that reaches the earth from the sun. It has wavelengths shorter than visible light, making it invisible to the naked eye. These wavelengths are classified as UVA, UVB, or UVC, with UVA the longest of the three at 320–400 nanometers (nm, or billionths of a meter). UVA is further divided into two wave ranges, UVA I, which measures 340-400 nanometers (nm, or billionths of a meter), and UVA II which extends from 320–400 nanometers. UVB ranges from 290 to 320 nm. With even shorter rays, most UVC is absorbed by the ozone layer and does not reach the earth.

    Both UVA and UVB, however, penetrate the atmosphere and play an important role in conditions such as premature skin aging, eye damage (including cataracts), and skin cancers. They also suppress the immune system, reducing your ability to fight off these and other maladies.

  29. UVA rays are responsible for aging. They are less likely than UVB to cause sunburn but UVA penetrates the skin more deeply, causing wrinkling and leathering of the skin.

  35. UVA rays are constantly present, no matter the season or the weather. Unlike UVA rays, UVB rays aren't always the same strength year round - They're more prevalent in the summer months, however they are able to reflect off of water or snow, so it's always important to protect yourself year-round.UVB rays are responsible for causing most skin cancers. While large doses of UVA rays can contribute to cancer, it's the UVB rays that are commonly to blame. info found on skincare at about.com

  49. UVA rays don't cause sunburns but do cause damage; UVB rays cause sunburns and for a long time were thought to be more harmful; now it is known that both types are harmful.

  51. Thanks for the giveaway...

    UVA: penetrates the skin more deeply than UVB, has long been known to play a major part in skin aging and wrinkling (photoaging); UVA damages skin cells called keratinocytes in the basal layer of the epidermis, where most skin cancers occur.

    UVB: chief cause of skin reddening and sunburn, tends to damage the skin’s more superficial epidermal layers. It plays a key role in the development of skin cancer and a contributory role in tanning and photoaging.

  64. I know both are harmful, but, UVB rays are the ones that burn your skin and UVA rays go deeper into the skin.
