Sun care faces some challenges from skin

Sun protection for the purpose of preventing skin cancer is a key driver of demand, although consumers of cosmetics are increasingly interested in the anti-ageing benefits of reduced exposure to the sun. Sun protection brands, particularly in the premium segment, will increasingly need to position their products as viable alternatives to higher-priced skin care formulae, which may serve as replacements for affluent consumers.
