The Importance of SPF During Winter


Many people associate sun protection with summertime, but it is equally important to protect your skin during the winter months. While the sun may not feel as intense, UV rays can still cause damage to your skin, leading to premature ageing and an increased risk of skin cancer. At Australian Private Label, we understand the importance of year-round sun protection and offer development packages to create the perfect SPF solution 

Why Sunscreen Matters

Sunscreen is crucial in protecting your skin from the harmful effects of UV rays, including sunburn, premature ageing, and skin cancer. During the winter months, the sun may feel less intense, but it can still cause damage to your skin, particularly if you spend extended periods of time outside. Additionally, snow and ice can reflect sunlight, increasing your exposure to UV rays.

Choosing the Right Sunscreen

When it comes to choosing the right sunscreen for winter, it is important to select a product with broad-spectrum protection, which will protect your skin from both UVA and UVB rays. Look for a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, which will provide adequate protection for most people. Additionally, choose a product that is moisturising to combat the dryness that can occur during the winter months.

Other Ways to Protect Your Skin

In addition to wearing sunscreen, there are other ways to protect your skin during the winter months. Covering up with hats, scarves, and gloves can provide additional protection from the sun and wind. Additionally, staying hydrated and moisturizing regularly can help combat dryness and keep your skin healthy.


Protecting your skin from the sun is essential year-round, including during the winter months. At Australian Private Label, our custom formulation services can help you create a sunscreen product that is tailored to your brand. Contact us today to learn more.
