Anti Oxidants – The Hero Ingredients in Environ’s New SPF 25 RAD Sun Spray

There is no argument that SPF’s (Sun Protection Factors) help in reducing the damaging effects of sun exposure. Environ’s original RAD SPF 15 sunscreen, launched some 22 years ago, remains one of the world’s most effective sunscreen products. Environ’s founder, Dr Des Fernandes, identified the valuable role that anti oxidants have to play in fighting and preventing damage to skin cells from sun exposure and pollutants, and they have been included in the whole of the Environ skincare range since it first emerged.

Now, with the introduction of even more effective new sunscreen agents and changes to the SPF level requirements of the anti cancer associations, Environ has added an exciting new style sun protector to the range, with even better UVA protection.

The new RAD Spray SPF 25 meets demands for a lighter, more fluid formulation that spreads more easily over the skin whilst retaining all the benefits of the original RAD cream. The new formulation was created with SPF 25 in order to gain valuable certification from the Cancer Association of South Africa – CANSA.

This broad spectrum, medium protection sun lotion contains four different sunscreen elements which defend against UVA and UVB. Various antioxidants and vitamins also increase the level of protection.

The benefits of RAD SPF 25 Sun Spray:

*Provides a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) 25

*Easily absorbed milky texture can be sprayed over the entire body leaving a silky after feel

*Contains various antioxidants, including vitamins C and E, rosemary leaf extract and colourless carotenoids derived from tomatoes, which have been scientifically proven to assist in protecting against free radicals and sun damage.

*Malt Secrets (barley seed extract) is rich in polyphenols and ferulic acid. This ingredient is proven to work in synergy with vitamins C and E and has excellent anti-ageing and antioxidant properties.

*Recognised by the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) as a broad spectrum sunscreen providing adequate UVA and UVB protection.

A note from Environ founder Dr Des Fernandes

A Spray Not A Spritz!

This is not a a sunscreen to spray on like an alcohol-based spray. No one can make an effective, safe sunscreen that is simply sprayed on the skin without being massaged into the skin.


I am fundamentally opposed to an alcohol-type spray because first of all it does not ensure uniform protection, and there is considerable pollution of the atmosphere from these sprays. Furthermore, they can be inhaled, and there are no studies to show the safety of inhalation of sunscreen agents.


Environ RAD SPF 25 is now available at Waters Edge Clinic. To celebrate the launch of this fantastic new SPF, there is a free beach bag given with every spray purchased whilst stocks last.
