Actinica Lotion

Actinica Lotion is a highly effective medical device with broad spectrum UV protection. It has been developed especially for people who are at a higher risk than others to develop skin cancer due to UV exposure.

Actinica Lotion is the first and only medical device with demonstrated effectiveness in the prevention of NMSC (non-melanoma skin cancers) in a clinical study.  This showed a 53% reduction of AK (Actinic keratosis) lesions and no new invasive SCC (Squamous cell carcinoma) within 2 years of regular use of Actinica Lotion.

Actinica Lotion contains a combination of modern photostable UV filters.  These cover a broad spectrum, to absorb, reflect and scatter UV radiation.  It is highly effective in protection against UVB and UVA radiation.  Regulations for Actinica Lotion are different to the ones that apply for cosmetic products, so it is important to note that the UV protection level of Actinica Lotion has been tested according to European cosmetic requirements for sunscreens: its UVB and UVA protection level meets the highest category, "very high protection".

Actinica Lotion contains extra moisturising properties to help improve skin texture.  As it does not contain fragrance or PEG emulsifiers, this helps to ensure that the liposomal lotion is well tolerated and suitable and comfortable for all skin types.

Easy and convenient application - the unique measured dose dispenser helps you to apply the correct amount of Actinca Lotion to your skin.  This helps to provide reassurance that you are using enough lotion to protect yourself.
