Shield your Skin from the Sun's Damaging UV Rays

Skin cancer is the top medical ailment reported to cause mass suffering among the Australian population, making Cancer Council sunscreen one of Australia’s top cosmetic commodity. The large continental island is mainly categorized as a desert climate that can reach high temperatures up to about 123 degrees Fahrenheit. The climate, coupled with the culture of intentional sun tanning and embracing outdoor activities among fair-skinned people is the major precursor to numerous skin cancer cases. It is because of these increasing cases of skin cancer that the Australian government has proactively initiated campaigns such as SunSmart and Cancer Council Sunscreens to reduce the likelihood of ever increasing medical cases of this nature.

Use a Broad Spectrum UVA and UVB Sunscreen

The 3 types of skin cancer are basal, squamous, and malignant melanoma, listed from mild to most severe. Basal cell carcinoma is seen very often among the Australian population, manifesting itself at the base of the epidermis. It occurs on the most exposed parts of the body to include the entire cranium, scapula, and posterior regions. Squamous cell carcinoma presents as tumors throughout the epithelium, but unlike basal cell carcinoma, it can spread throughout the body. Squamous cell carcinomas can also be found in the most unlikely places that would ordinarily not be as exposed, such as the inner lip. The most malignant type of skin cancer in melanoma, however, like the 2 that precede it, it can be treated and cured fairly easily if it’s tended to in the early stages of development. All of these are caused by habitual exposure to UVA and UVB waves.

The Australian government had spent an estimated amount of $300 million on healthcare costs to treat skin cancer patients alone each year. This is the primary reason that Australia is one of the leading nations to take Cancer Council Sunscreens initiative to help preserve the ozone layer (Earth’s primary protection against harmful UVA and UVB waves).

Protect your Kids with Sensitive Sunscreen

Additionally, there’s been a national push to educate and inform the Australian citizens about good skin protection measures, early detection of skin cancer, and reduction of a culture of “healthy tanning”. One of several features of the SunSmart campaign is accreditation of nearly 75% of all schools that adhere to strict sun protection guidelines. For instance, school aged children are prohibited from going outside without hats and sunscreen.

Aside from the government, Cancer Council Australia is a leading national private cancer control organization. Aside from selling quality sun protection products, Cancer Council Sunscreen has worked to help inform and educate patients who have been diagnosed with skin cancer. They undertake and fund cancer research, contributing about $43 million towards research efforts in 2014. The experts of Cancer Council Sunscreen recommend routine use of sunscreen and advocate its utilization to become the norm; the functional goal being a change in the culture of the Australian people to protect themselves from the harmful rays of the sun.
