Team Pacific Rowers Meet Ultrasun: Professional Sun Protection

Last week I met Abi Cleeve, Managing Director of Ultrasun, a leading provider of small range quality products to satisfy all your sun protection requirements, headquartered in Switzerland. The introduction was initiated a couple of weeks ago by a good friend of mine Lucy (HRH/PR Queen), and I was delighted. The lightning speed at which Abi replied and offered us to try Ultrasun’s products out on the Pacific was very kind and an exciting prospect for us. Within just a few days, I drove down to their Reigate office and met a wonderful team full of enthusiasm and energy, equalled and surpassed by Abi’s. What busy MD would have the time to meet a random ocean rowing crazy for over an hour? Abi. Thanks!

Sun care is something I take seriously since we first visited Australia on one of many family holidays back in the early 90’s, being fortunate to grow up in Indonesia nearby. My mum was castigated by a local ‘Sheila’ on a boiling hot Sunshine Coast (Port Cartwright) one day for wearing crap cream, if not any cream at all; naughty Mum ‘tut tut’ – this was an O-Zone free zone didn’t you know – ignorant Pommies! As a rebellious teenager I thought it was all a bit heavy handed, but then I learnt about the Aussie Government ‘Slip-Slop-Slap’ campaign, and the excruciating pain of sun burn itself on the backs of my legs and neck after my first embarrassing attempts to learn to surf that same holiday. I could barely walk and couldn’t turn my neck an inch either way, I felt incredibly stupid. Grand-dad and Dad have since been effected, so it was very interesting to hear what Abi had to say, and here are a few nuggets I took home to share:

1. Awareness: The biggest defence we have against the sun is ‘awareness’ – Team Pacific Rowers are fully on board to help educate anyone interested about sun care and skin cancer in every way possible.

2. Expertise: Ultrasun are the only European brand that sell products in in Australia (the Kings of Sun Protection), why no others? Because EU regulation is less stringent and big brand sun cream manufacturers literally get away with old school formulas that are frankly not up to scratch. It costs £150,000 to test for UVA and UVB a piece, so why ‘waste’ and sink £300k in R&D costs before even thinking about a marketing campaign and overheads?

3. Unique: Ultrasun continuously invest, innovate, re-create and refine formulas for maximum UVA & UVB protection, ie. they take their products and the damage sun can cause much more seriously than others! Full advantages here.

4. Advice: If you’re active or relaxing in the sun all day, take a ‘shade break’ for 5-10 mins every hour to give your skin cells a break, keep rehydrating regularly as well! The former might be a little tricks in the middle of the ocean since we’re on 2-hour shifts, but we’ll figure something out…

5. Usage: Apply suncream 10 mins before going into the sun, apply lip protector above and below the lip line as well as on the lips, use on eyelids too if that ‘floats your boat’ (pardon the pun).

6. Knowledge: Water reflects 56% of the suns rays on average depending on the shade of the water, so cover all areas of skin, and don’t leave any part of the body exposed, especially skin closest to the bone – take note balding men! Uhhh… all of us then, except our glam pin-up boy, whipper snapper Sam?!

This is not just a shout out to Ultrasun for kindly giving us a bunch of free stuff (yes that helps), but I was genuinely intrigued and impressed with the brand and what they do and stand for. Team Pacific Rowers will all be proud users of Ultrasun’s fantastic formulas this summer on the what’s forecast to be the hottest North Pacific conditions seen in years! We will blog in due course on the real effectiveness of the various lotions, but we’re all very excited about the prospect of protecting our skins with just one application/per day – thanks Abi and everyone in the company for the opportunity!

    Hi, listened to Robert Vadney. He certainly has his own unique sound,but i can easily imagine his tracks played on the dance floor, although my mind is not quite made up with the vocal tracks…It’s great to discover new talent and he does have a style that i can’t really explain just yet?? You would have to listen to it to really appreciate his talent

    Es todo una manipulación de los medio. Lo único que quieren es el petróleo que acaban de descubrir en Barad-dûr y Orodruin.Ya no les alcanza con el bloqueo comercial para asediar al pobre pueblo de Mordon. Además la Haya confirmó el estudio de Bosnia de que el hálito negro no es tóxico. Esta medida está fuera de todo amparo legal y convención internacional.
