Why Mineral Sunscreen is Best.
Fishing and other outdoor sports expose you and your skin to the harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun. Reeler’s Shield was specifically designed to protect anglers of all ages with an eco- and reef-friendly product that reflects those harmful rays instead of absorbing them like traditional sunscreens.
Skin cancer is one of the most preventable cancers, and over 90% of all skin cancers are associated with sun exposure or indoor tanning. Understanding how sunscreens work is vital to choosing one that is truly effective.
SKIN CANCER IS THE MOST
COMMON CANCER IN THE U.S.
ONE in FIVE Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime, and one person dies from melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, every hour.
Broad spectrum sunscreen
Protects your skin from the sun’s UVA (aging) and UVB (burning) rays. This helps prevent sunburn, skin cancer, and premature aging like age spots, wrinkles, and sagging skin.
What about SPF?
Sunscreens are rated by their sun protective factor (SPF) rating. It’s important to know that no sunscreen can filter out 100% of the sun’s UVB rays; the AAD recommends using an SPF 30 or higher.
- SPF15: filters out 93% of UVB rays
- SPF30: filters out 97% of UVB rays
- SPF50: filters out 98% of UVB rays
Sunscreens labeled as water resistant stay effective for 80 minutes in the water; after this, you’ll need to reapply. Even if your skin remains dry while using a water resistant sunscreen, you’ll need to reapply every 2 hours.
