19 Protective Sunscreen Innovations

From Drinkable Sunscreens to SPF Face Paint

— May 27, 2014 — Eco
The summer weather has just amped up in the Northern Hemisphere and that means ensuring people are engaging in sun safety measures to avoid painful burns on one end of the spectrum and cancer scares on the other; that is where these protective sunscreen innovations come into play. As people become more aware of the harmful affects the sun and UV rays have on their health, companies are releasing a variety of different ways to shield themselves.

From wearable tech that alerts people when they should apply more sunscreen to drinkable sunscreens that avoid the sticky residue on the skin many hate, these protective sunscreen innovations are inventive and helpful. They encourage people to stay sun safe any way they can.
