Check out this easy education module and update your knowledge on sun protection just in time for summer

Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancers in the world and 95% of these cancers are actually preventable.

Most Australians (85%) do not use enough sunscreen, and are not getting the protection they need. Furthermore, only 32% of people reapply sunscreen every two hours.  

With summer just around the corner, it is important that your pharmacy customers understand how to protect themselves from the sun.

Everyone has different preferences when it comes to sun protection, which is why it’s important to offer different sunscreens to suit a variety of use.

The good news is that all sunscreens sold in Australia are regulated by the TGA for safety and quality.
