Avon’s commitment to sun care safety

Avon’s commitment to sun care safety

In response to the 2017 Which? sun care report, which was re published on 24th May 2018, we want to reassure our customers and Representatives that they buy Avon products with full confidence that they perform both safely and effectively. We stand by the results of our SPF (Sun Protection Factor) testing which is performed according to internationally recognized, regulatory approved protocols by independent external laboratories.

With over 100 years in developing and manufacturing award winning beauty products we don’t take this news lightly and so endeavor to partner with Which? to look at reformulating the Sun+ Multi Protection Moisturising Sun Lotion SPF30 to ensure it meets their testing methods on SPF ratings.

For further information on how sunscreen is developed and tested please visit the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Perfumery Association (CTPA) website.

Remember sun safety isn’t just about sunscreen. The CTPA advise you follow these simple steps to stay sun safe…

  • Seek out shade, particularly between 11am and 3pm, when the sun is usually at its most intense
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing and a wide-brimmed hat when in the sun and wear a good pair of sunglasses
  • Apply sunscreen 15-30 minutes before going out in the sun and re-apply every couple of hours throughout the day – you will need about a golf-ball-sized amount of cream for each application
  • Remember to re-apply when you emerge from cooling off in the water
  • Never use sunscreen to extend the time you would normally spend in the sun
  • Drink plenty of water, particularly in hot weather. Keeping your water intake up prevents dehydration and maintains a healthy bladder and kidneys; a healthy body
