Moisturising Sunscreen SPF50
- Broad spectrum SPF (UVA and UVB protection)
- Facial sunscreen
- Fragrance and paraben free
- Water resistant
- Five-star ultra UVA rating
A moisturising sunscreen from the dermatologist-led brand, Altruist, this product offers broad spectrum protection from UVA and UVB rays. With a five-star ultra UVA rating, it has the highest rating for ultraviolet A radiation (UVA) protection. It is water resistant and has been designed for sensitive skin to help reduce the risk of skin cancer and prevent premature ageing from sun damage. It has been designed to be non-sticky, is fragrance free and it meets the EU standards for vegan, cruelty free and coral friendly status.
Sun protection is recommended even when it’s not sunny, especially for cancer patients as treatments can cause increased skin sensitivity. The preference is for using a broad spectrum sunscreen of at least 30SPF, and preferably 50.
Apply a generous amount to bare skin, at least 20 minutes before going out in the sun and reapply regularly throughout the day. Avoid contact with eyes.

Founded by Jennifer Young in 2013, Beauty Despite Cancer is the recognised expert in specialist skincare for those living with and beyond cancer.
Beauty Despite Cancer ensure that anyone being treated for, living with or recovering from cancer, receives the skincare and wellbeing support they need and deserve in a safe and meaningful way, through products they can use at home.
While it’s not often spoken about, the side effects of cancer treatment can be extremely distressing and undermining to a sense of self, at a time when people are already going through enough. For example, chemotherapy and radiotherapy can cause painfully dry skin, brittle nails, skin pigmentation and chronic itching – to name a few. They are the things that none of us see unless we happen to go through it ourselves or with a loved one.
Incensed by the scale of the issue and the way it was being ignored, Jennifer began working closely with patients and nurses, all of whom had their own criteria, in order to develop products that really worked to make people feel better and also to tackle the areas of concern that were adding to patients’ distress and discomfort.
Since then, she has worked to create a product line that meets the needs of anyone with or recovering from cancer as well as giving a sense of enjoyment, comfort and relief when using them.
