Did you know? 90% of skin cancers are caused by excessive sun exposure(1).
Repeated exposure to the sun alters the skin cells and their DNA, causing real damage: photoaging and the development of actinic lesions and that can cause non-melanoma skin cancer. Actinic keratosis is a lesion in the form of a red, flaky and rough mark that appears on the areas most exposed to the sun. It is an indicator of over-exposure and a marker of the risk of developing non-melanoma skin cancer.
SVR is increasing its medical commitment to dermatologists and their patients and launching AK SECURE DM PROTECT : a medical product combining very high sun protection with the prevention of non-melanoma skin cancers for hypersensitive or at-risk skin(2).
