Wow, this is a real game changer of a product that is 10 years in the making from Incognito – it’s my ‘must have’ multi-tasking product that’s perfect for holidays and summer days.
Second Skin Suncream Insect-Repellent from Incognito combines three holiday needs, it protects skin from sun with a proven SPF protecting against both UVA and UVB rays. It contains the same natural anti-insect ingredient as incognito’s award winning insect repellent spray which is 100% effective, the active ingredient PMD – also known as oil of eucalyptus – is recommended by Public Health England and the NHS, and tests show it’s 100% effective against mosquitoes carrying the Zika virus, malaria, dengue and chikungunya.
‘We source the purest PMD’, Howard tells us, ‘so it’s highly effective as all allergens and impurities have been removed.’ It works by camouflaging the user rather than repelling insects, so the cream – which contains other ingredients with repellent qualities – has a dual mode of action.
It offers an unprecedented level of protection AND on top of this double protection from UVA, UVB and insects, it also moisturises and hydrates the skin and is water-resistant, making it perfect for going in and out of swimming pools or the sea, and having a greater resistance against sweat.
This formulation is a great achievement. Duel-action sun protection and repellents have been removed from shelves in the USA and UK because of the interference of conflicting scents making them ineffective (scents used can help attract insects and mosquitoes) …. not so with this great product, the natural and organic sun protection and fragrance works in conjunction with the natural insect repellent so that one fragrance doesn’t conflict with the other.
This 3-in-1 super holiday essential has a light citrusy fragrance, is rich in texture and easy to use, free from irritants, parabens, and SLSs and transforms your holiday protection…what more could you want! …. it’s even eco-friendly with packaging made from innovative and environmentally friendly sugar cane plastic which captures more CO2 emissions than it releases. I love it.
This is one part of incognito’s Second Skin range, the sun cream is one step in a whole-skin approach to the battle against bites, Incognito have also created a multi-tasking hair and body wash and a new and improved natural moisturiser with avocado, chamomile and geranium that works brilliantly as an after-sun to shield your skin from biting insects.
