Cyberderm wages war on harmful effects of the sun

Canadian company creates efficacious sunscreens that are safe for everybody

by Patti Pietschmann

Think of the sun as 'beauty and the beast'.  While a tan makes everyone look more attractive and healthy, getting one by sitting in the sun is quite beastly and harmful. Not only does overexposure to rays speed up the aging of skin  (translated sun spots, wrinkles and lines) it has been known to cause skin cancer (been there done that and have scars to prove it). Enter Cybederm, a Canadian company that caught my attention via an email because of how effective and efficacious its products sound.  Hardly new to the business Cyberderm has been around since 2008 years.   It was founded by Canadian doctors Denis Dudley and Sharyn Laughin who say the company is dedicated to creating products that feature the latest and best advances in formulations back by medical professionals. The company sent me two products to try: 

Every Morning Sun Whip  a great facial sunscreen with a cashmere matte finish that you apply it to the face, neck, chest and hands daily! Zinc oxide provides consistent and photo-stable protection against UVB and UVA rays. It’s soothing and calming to the skin, which is why mothers apply zinc oxide to their babies’ bottoms. This 15% zinc oxide and 7.5% encapsulated octinoxate blend applies invisibly and smoothly to the skin. It provides just the right amount of hydration for many but pairs nicely with our H20 Hydration. It is also perfect for those with combination, oily or acneic skin. This is an essential for both young and mature skin and provides essential daily protection. Category: , price $38..

Simply Zinc Sun Whip a pure, physical sunscreen the Simply Zinc Sun WhipTM   contains 22% certified organic Zinc Oxide in a rich and hydrating olive base. It applies smoothly and invisibly while it absorbs quickly without leaving a shiny finish. It is perfect for those looking for more hydration or for those with sensitive skin. It is also a great facial sunscreen for women with melasma or hyperpigmentation, by providing strong and consistent protection against UVB and UVA rays. The anti-oxidants provided by the olive oil base and the inclusion of tetrapeptides also make this a great anti-aging sunscreen.

Since  I am now in Los Angeles, California where it has been raining cats and dogs I can't effectively test the products but will as soon as the sun also rises. I am also bringing them on our next trip to Maui where we spend a month a year and need to protect ourselves from sun damage. Remember I have suffered surgery to remove skin cancers, it's no fun. So practice safe sun at all times.
