Sun Protection: UV Radiation and Skin Damage
Sun energy waves can be divided according to their physiological affect on the skin as well as the depth of skin penetration.
UVAI (340-400nm) can cause tanning but has minimal erythemal effect. It penetrates deeply and can cause long-term damage.
UVAII (320-340nm) has a slight erythemal effect.
UVB (290-320nm) causes sunburn and is a major contributor to skin cancer development.
UVC (200-290nm) is very energetic radiation which is absorbed by the ozone layer.
In less scientific words, sun radiation penetrates the skin and causes sunburn, long-term skin damage, and possibly skin cancer.
The Nidaria R&D team has developed a range of topical sunscreens that reduce or eliminate the skin penetration of UV radiation.

How to avoid jellyfish stings
Nothing can ruin a trip to the beach more than a jellyfish sting. Not only can they be very painful, but depending on the jellyfish, they can also be deadly.
You’ll need more than a bit of sunscreen to protect you during a day out, so these tips will hopefully keep you sting free.
Know your beach
If you are driving down the coast and you see a beautiful empty beach. You might be inclined, or even find it irresistible, to run down the sandy heave and have a swim. However, do you know how safe that beach is? If it’s 100 percent safe than why are no others there? Someone might know something you don’t. It’s best to only swim at beaches that are protected by lifeguards.
Patrolled beaches will have notifications of when there is an increase in jellyfish in the area. These warnings can be in the form of coloured flags or signs. If there is no visible warning, you can always ask the lifeguard on duty. Lifeguards are also prepared with the right tools to help treat a jellyfish sting and, of course, can help you in any emergency. Best to stay on patrolled beaches.
HOW JELLYFISH STING:
When there is contact between a tentacle and human skin, the stinging cells are activated and deploy their needles. Each needle penetrates the skin and injects its venom, generating pain, red marks and rashes.
A. Stimulants from the skin initiate the discharge process
B. High internal pressure of 200 atmospheres is built in the capsule
C. With 40,000xG of acceleration the needle drills a hole into the skin
D. A tubule follows the shaft and injects the venom into the body
HOW SAFE SEA LOTION WORKS:
Safe Sea contains unique and patented ingredients that protect against jellyfish stings in several ways:
The slippery texture makes it difficult for the stinging tentacles to get a grip.
Chemical (stoppers) in the lotion block up the sites where the stinging process is activated.
Other inhibitors (stoppers) block the chemical pathway.
Chemical stoppers reduce pressure in the stinging cells, preventing the jellyfish from firing its stings.
Frequently-asked questions about Safe Sea® lotion
Is Safe Sea® lotion biodegradable and is it harmful to fish or reef?
While the bottle is made of plastic and NOT biodegradable, the Safe Sea® lotion IS biodegradable and non-toxic for the marine environment (including fish and coral). Safe Sea does not actually harm the jellyfish you may encounter…it merely keeps them from stinging you.
Is Safe Sea® lotion waterproof? How often should I reapply it?
Safe Sea® lotion provides durable waterproof sting and sun protection. For normal activity, re-apply every 80 minutes or after prolonged swimming, towel-drying, or excessive sweating. Remember, the water you’re swimming in (especially the open water) creates friction and will wear the lotion down over time. The harder you play, the more frequently you’ll need to stop and re-apply.
How much Safe Sea should I order for my trip?
How much Safe Sea you’ll need depends on many factors including how much time you spend in the water each day, how active you are in and out of the water, and how thickly you apply the lotion.
To get a general idea of how much to order, figure at least 1oz for an all-over application on an average adult or roughly four (head to toe) applications per bottle. If you reapply as directed every 80 minutes, each bottle should provide at least 5 hours of continuous protection for one adult. If you cut the useage in half for a child as an estimate, each bottle will provide roughly 10 hours of continuous protection for each child. Estimate how much actual “water time” you expect per day and use that as your guide. Remember, Safe Sea has a shelf life of 3 years so you can always save what you don’t use for your next trip.
Is Safe Sea® lotion available in stores?
Safe Sea® sting prevention lotion is available in some dive and specialty shops seasonally, however it can be relatively hard to find and your safest option is to order from SBR.ph Shop if you definitely need it by a certain date.
What types of jellyfish is Safe Sea® effective against?
Safe Sea® has been scientifically developed to prevent the stings of most jellyfish (including Atlantic Box jellyfish and Rhopilema), Sea Nettle and Seabathers Eruption (commonly known as sea lice). All of these belong to the Cnidarian family and each shares the same stinging mechanism. Safe Sea targets this stinging mechanism…not the individual jellyfish. So all members of the phylum will have an extremely difficult time getting past Safe Sea.
What sunscreen formula is used in Safe Sea?
The sunscreen used in Safe Sea contains Octinoxate, Octisalate, Oxybenzone, and Titanium Dioxide (SPF30+ for sensitive skin) or Zinc Oxide (all other sunscreen varieties). It is PABA-free and non-comedogenic.
What is the shelf life for Safe Sea®?
For maximum strength, use within 3 years.
Is Safe Sea lotion safe to use on children?
All varieties of Safe Sea® are approved for use on children six months of age and older. The SPF30+ variety contains an alternate sunscreen formula which is less likely to cause a reaction on children with sensitive skin. We do not recommend using the lotion on babies younger than six months old.
