Scientific Sunburn – (a photo of sunburn) – includes three discrete stages or phases –
- Phase I – Inflammation;
- Phase II – New Tissue Formation;
- Phase III – Apoptosis (Peeling).
The final phase of scientific sunburn involves cell death or peeling (also known as “apoptosis”), which has been linked to skin cancer . Moondust suncare products help provide protection against all three phases of sunburn.
