NO-AD Prevent & Repair and NO-AD Prevent & Brighten,
which are packed with a premium blend of vitamins, antioxidants, and SPF 15 broad spectrum protection, are multifunctional products unlike any moisturizers sold in mass market outlets. Designed to promote more beautiful skin all over the body ‹ not just on the face ‹ each product is chock-a-block with powerful ingredients that repair, brighten, and prevent aging caused by cumulative daily sun damage.
Incidental Sun Exposure
A new survey conducted by GfK Custom Research North America and commissioned by NO-AD Skin Care found that a majority of Americans mistakenly believe they receive most of their total lifetime sun exposure from extended outdoor activities like going to the beach. "Actually those activities account for a mere 20 percent of lifetime sun exposure," said Brevard, Fla.-based dermatologist Dr. Richard C. Kirkpatrick. "In fact, 80 percent comes from daily incidental sun exposure, such as in driving to the store, walking the dog, or just sitting indoors next to a sunny window."
Kirkpatrick stressed that incidental sun exposure accumulates incrementally and prematurely ages the skin.
SSCR CEO Stuart J. Straus observed that when most consumers think about "anti-aging protection," they think of a product just for the face. "Beauty is more than face deep," he said. "No matter how much attention you give your face, it's the constant UV skin damage to your neck, chest, arms, and legs that can give away your age. It¹s why you need to apply body lotion daily to any exposed skin. This need for total body skin care ‹ an all-day, everyday, all-the-time, anti-aging lotion that delivers SPF 15 protection ‹ is precisely why NO-AD jumped into the highly competitive skin care category."
NO-AD Breaks Into Skin Care Category
Straus noted that, at 46 cents per ounce each, NO-AD Skin Care lotions cost half what competing SPF body lotions do ‹ and yet those other lotions don¹t contain NO-AD¹s high-quality anti-aging ingredients. They will be available starting March 2015 at select Wal-Mart stores, walmart.com, drugstore.com, and HEB, as well as food, drug, and mass market retailers.
"This is a category breakout for NO-AD," Straus said. "NO-AD's new skin care line is the first of its kind ‹ anti-aging body moisturizers with SPF 15 created expressly for the mass market. Leveraging its 50-year sun care heritage, NO-AD Skin Care is delivering more for less, in ingredients and innovation ‹ and is proudly made in the USA."
NO-AD Skin Care's non-greasy, fast-absorbing formulas are dermatologist-tested and carry the Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of approval. NO-AD products are also PABA-free and are not tested on animals.
Survey Says Americans Unaware of Incidental Sun Exposure
The NO-AD Skin Care survey points to the need for greater consumer education about the dangerous aging effect on the body of daily incidental sun exposure. Key findings:
· Very few Americans (just 5%) apply any type of sun protection to their body daily.
· Many Americans underestimate the damage to their skin from brief daily sun exposures ‹ in fact, fewer than half (48%) agree that short exposures to the sun cause a lot of skin damage.
· Most Americans (72%) say they only worry about sun exposure if they are going to be in the sun for a long time, such as at the beach, pool, park, etc.
· A majority (51%) worry more about daily sun exposure on "my face than about other exposed skin, like my hands and arms."
MY THOUGHTS-I am one of those people who doesn't often wear sunscreen. I know, I know, I should work better at taking care of my skin now than trying to do repair later. I just hate having to put on a lot of stinky smelly lotions every time I go outside. But with summer quickly approaching I know I have to get used to it. For once I found a product that doesn't smell bad, is easy to apply, and I can purchase it cheaper than normal prices!
The two items I received for review are the Prevent and Repair Anti-Aging Moisturizer with Sunscreen(a lotion) and the Prevent and Brighten Anti-Aging Body Moisturizer with Sunscreen(this one is a spray). Now I reviewed the one but I kept the other one sealed so I can use it for giveaway!! So one of you will win the Prevent and Brighten bottle:)
The lotion at first was very hard to get open. I was to the point of frustration with it when finally it popped open. It is the type that you have to keep twisting until it clicks. Well you know how it goes, it wouldn't click and I was getting frustrated but finally it opened. The lotion is light and non greasy feeling which was a big plus in my book. I don't like when you feel like you are wearing a pound of lotion on your skin.
The scent is floral and airy but can get strong if you are using a lot. We used it on a day out and after applying it on everybody, the house smelled pretty strong. I think the benefits outweigh the setbacks though and I am glad to find a product I can feel comfortable with putting on my skin. And at the price, you can't beat it!
