Sun Facts

Sun 101

  • When possible, avoid outdoor activities during the hours between 10am and 4pm, when the sun's rays are the strongest.
  • Always wear a sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 15 or higher.
  • Be sure to reapply sunscreen frequently, especially after swimming, sweating or drying off.
  • Wear a hat with a broad-brim all around because it protects areas often exposed to the sun.
  • Wear clothing to protect as much skin as possible.
  • To protect your eyes from damage, wear sunglasses that block UVA & UVB radiation.
  • Consider wearing cosmetics and lip protectors with an SPF 15 or higher.
  • Swimmers should regularly reapply sunscreen. UV rays reflect off water and sand, increasing the intensity of UV radiation.
  • Some medications, such as antibiotics, can increase your skins sensitivity to the sun. Ask your doctor of pharmacist for more information about the medications you are taking.
  • Children need extra protection from the sun. Sunburns before the age of 18 dramatically increases the risk of skin cancer. Encourage children to play in the shade, wear protective clothing and apply sunscreen regularly.

How It's Made

MOST people know a little about Aloe Vera Gel, but not the whole story. We know it’s good for you, natural and helps with burns. How many times have you been at the beach and got a bad sunburn — then, someone finds an aloe vera leaf, breaks it open and rubs the gel on your burn? Feels better, right?

THERE is a lot more to the science of Aloe and why it works. Aloe Vera Gel, when applied to your skin or ingested, will stimulate your immune system into action. This helps your body naturally regenerate skin cells and is why Aloe makes for such a great moisturizer and burn relief product. Aloe also reduces swelling and stops itching. What most people don’t know is that Aloe is the same PH as your skin and is a great penetrator. With Aloe Up Suncare, we use a base of Aloe to carry the sunscreen down into your pores so it doesn’t sit on top of your skin and feel greasy or wash off easily.

Why Aloe Up?

"OVER the last 27 years, I have been asked the same question over and over. “Why does Aloe Up work so much better than other brands?” My answer is always the same — “It’s the Aloe Vera Gel.” We grow our own Aloe on 600 acres in Harlingen, Texas. The strain we grow is the Aloe Barbadensis Lenny Miller which is the best type for cosmetic and food grade uses. Most sunscreens and moisturizers are based with water or mineral oil and a manufacturer may put a drop or two of Aloe Vera in there for marketing purposes. A drop or two won’t do the trick. If you don’t put in at least 20% by volume of pure Aloe Vera Gel, you will not get the true benefits of Aloe Vera Gel. Aloe Up starts with the most effective Aloe and uses at least 35-96.9% in each product we produce. That is why we control the growing of our most important ingredient, Aloe Vera."

About Aloe Up Suncare

Aloe Up Suncare products contain more pure Aloe than other similar products on the market, containing a minimum of 25 percent by volume up to 96.9 percent by volume. In addition to its healing properties, Aloe Vera Gel has the same PH as your skin. This allows Aloe Up sunscreens to quickly and effectively soak in without feeling greasy and becoming sweat resistant.
