Yonka-Paris Sunscreen SPF 25: DISCONTINUED!

Yes, another product has seen its last days. Both SPF 20 (a wonderful, light-textured, albeit low SPF product great for an oily skin) and SPF 25 have seen their last days. Below is the modified original post that included SPF 50, which is still available. I just took that product out and left the information for SPF 25 in case you want to read about it. I am hopeful Yonka will create some additional sunscreens to their one and only at this time, but it is a wait and see adventure. Now that I am retired, I no longer have access to the professional information I once did as far as what changes and additions will be coming down the pike.

Back in 2012, Yonka revamped several of their products while redressing the line with new packaging. Some of those products that went through an overhaul were their sun products. And if I can say sothankfully! Except in the case of the now discontinued Lait Solaire (oh, how I loved that product, see link below), the former Ultra Protection SPF 25 and SPF 40 sunscreens contained so much titanium dioxide that many of my clients couldnt use these sun products because it made their faces so white, with the titanium dioxide never really absorbing in. Not so with these two sun products. They are quickly and easily absorbed while providing excellent sun protection.

SPF 25 is termed a broad spectrum sun creamYou always want to use sunscreen that is full or broad spectrum, which means it protects against both UVA and UVB rays. Most sunscreens on the market nowadays have both UV filters in them, although this wasnt the case less than a decade ago. Without protecting your skin from both kinds of UV rays, a sunscreen is only doing half its job.

SPF 25 is a light-textured moisturizing sun cream. It is perfect for all skin types and can be used not only on the face but your entire body as well to help keep your skin from burning. As with any and all sun products, if you are going to be exposed for extended periods of time, reapply! (This product replaces Ultra Protection SPF 25.)

Ultra Protection employed titanium dioxide as one of its main sunscreen ingredients. Titanium dioxide, because of its white, chalky nature, made Ultra Protection leave an obvious white tint on the skin, even after it had absorbed. Those of you who experienced this will be happy to know the new SPF 25 does not have this effect! It is a luxurious cream and does not leave the skin looking white.

Directions for use:
  • Apply generously before any exposure
  • Reapply at least every 2 hours and after swimming or sweating
  • Concentrate on the areas that are particularly sensitive or are exposed to sunnose, tops of the ears, and shoulders, for instance

If you’re going to be exercising outside, use a waterproof product. If you’re only going to get incidental sun (like to and from your car), a regular, non-waterproof sunscreen will usually be enough.
