“We’re trying to protect people’s skin, which is something that we feel quite strongly about. We believe that needs to be done daily, whether you live in the UK or. The skin is the first line of defence when we are outside and it’s the first line of defence to the inside of your body. And in its worst scenario, skin damage equals cancer. But skin damage could just be redness. It could be soreness, itchiness, and it could be discomfort. So we’re just trying to address all of those forms of damage through a range of products. The sun is sun is beating down on all of us and it is 90% responsible for skin cancer. It’s also 80% responsible for ageing.
