The Next Generation Sunscreen

Makers of the broad spectrum sunscreen called Solar D claim it will help consumers produce vitamin D, essential for bone growth and strength, while still guarding them against skin cancer.

The best source of vitamin D is sun exposure—few foods naturally contain or are fortified with the vitamin. But 60 percent of adults run low on the “sunshine drug,” a factor influenced by widespread use of sunscreen to block the sun’s harmful ultraviolet light and, consequently, the body’s ability to create vitamin D.

In a recent study published by “PLOS ONE,” Solar D with an SPF of 30 allowed up to 50 percent more cellular vitamin D production in vitro. Solar D is available for purchase globally.
