Review : Sunplay Super Block SPF130 PA+++ with Solarex-3 technology formulation

At this moment, I know Sunplay Super Block SPF130 PA+++ has the highest SPF sun protection I know in the market. And sometimes people asked me what does SPF & PA in sunblok means?

SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor and sunscreens are rated by the Sun Protection Factor (SPF) system which is mainly a measure of UVB protection. The numeric value (130) simply indicates how much longer that sunscreen can enable you to stay in the sun before you start experiencing sunburn. In this case, the SPF 130 sunscreen allow you to stay out in the sun 130 times longer. And if usually you take 20 mins to experience sunburn, the sunscreen will delay the onset of a sunburn to 2600 minutes (43 hours). So you should reapply every 2600 minutes in this case, but then again who will actually be under the sun for 43 hours?

PA ( Protection Grade of UVA) refers to the amount of protection the sunscreen offers against UVA rays. More plus symbols mean more protection from UVA and UVB rays.

We have heard so much about the incease of global warming , and now the environmental experts have indicated that temperature is likely to increase 1.1 celcius to 6.4 celcius between 1990 and 2100. It is also predicted with the increase of temperaure by 2 celcius as a consequence of climate change, the carcinogenic effect of UV solar may increase by 10% and this will also increase the risk of skin cancer. So I guess the higher the SPF the better it is right?

Late last year, Sunplay Super Block SPF130 PA+++ introduced a new formula replacing the old one, which comes with the new Solarex-3 technology for more powerful protection against the sun. The 3-in-1 Defense system includes:-

1) Superior Photo Stability
Contains unique combination of active ingredients that provides superior and stable broad spectrum protection against UVA and UVB. Superior photo stability provides longer hours of protection without comprimising the effectiveness of the sunscreen.

2) Anti-PhotoAging
Sunrays is the major caused of skin aging. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation penetrates far beyond the top layer of skin (epidermis). Sunplay Solarex-3 formula contains highly active anti-aging ingredients such as Antileukine 6 which contains golden algae and marine extracts. It is rich in phosphatidylcholine, Vitamin A & E and Lipoic Acid which helps to prevent skin aging process. It also contains RonaCare Ectoin, an innovative substance for skin protection from UV radiation.

3) Intense Hydration
Contains Hyaluronic Acid has water binding effect that give the skin a natural suppleness and it is also used to treat rough skin surfaces and skin dehyradation. It has very high moisture retention ability, a long lasting softening effect and enchances the skin's elasticity.

So let's see how this Sunplay Super Block SPF130 PA+++ works on me:-

Remember to shake well before using it.

Comes in white liquid and has the water like texture. It feels ultra-light on my skin because it absorba into my skin easily without feeling greasiness.

It is said to be safe to be used on the face and the body. It is ideal for long hours of outdoor or water activites as it is also super water proof.

Review : With my recent trip to Bali and Cambodia, I had put this Sunplay Super Block SPF130 PA+++ to test. In Cambodia, I applied it all over my hands, arms and legs in the morning before I went out for my activities. And I am glad to say that despite going under the sun for more than 10 hours, I did not have any sunburn at all! I am glad that my skin does not feel sticky even when I sweat, so I am keeping this as my body sunblock for swimming and all my outdoor activities!

Sunplay SPF PA+++ (35g) with the new formulation is available at all leading pharmacies and major supermarket outlets at RM35.90/each.
