REDMOND, Wash., June 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- It's no mystery that applying sunscreen is important, but what about when it needs to come off? There is much attention paid to the protection of skin and the use of sunscreen, but very little effort is focused on the importance of properly removing sunscreen to keep skin clean, clear and healthy-looking.
Sunscreen helps protect skin from the damaging effects of UVA and UVB rays, but is designed to stay on skin all day -- making it difficult to remove. Dr. Robb Akridge, co-founder of Clarisonic, adds, "Sunscreen is one of the most important things you can do to protect the skin, but removing all of the residue can sometimes be tricky. Cleansing with Clarisonic gives you an easier and more effective option."
In a recent study1, Clarisonic compared the removal of sunscreen (leading physical and chemical sunscreens, SPF 15 to 30) using their patented sonic cleansing technology to manual sunscreen removal using hands alone. With a split-face study showing side-by-side results, Clarisonic sonic cleansing removed 6x more sunscreen than manual cleansing alone.
Clarisonic devices provide 6x better cleansing – removing more sunscreen, make-up, sebum and dirt than hands alone. Gentle enough to use up to twice a day, even for people with sensitive skin, cleansing with Clarisonic devices regularly means healthy-looking skin that feels and looks transformed.
Just in time for the summer, Clarisonic is launching its Mia 2 Summer Batik Beauty Bag Collection in turquoise or pink, great for any beach bag or carry on. The set comes with a Sensitive Skin Brush Head, as well as a Deep Pore Brush Head for a more invigorating cleanse. The Mia 2 Summer Batik Beauty Bag Collection is available now for $149 at Clarisonic.com and key retailers including Sephora and Ulta.
Clarisonic invented sonic skin cleansing in 2004 and today has sold over 15 million of its patented – and much loved – devices that help to reveal younger-looking skin. Available in more than 50 countries around the world, Clarisonic's mission is to beautifully transform skin and it does that by cleansing skin 6X better than hands alone. Gentle enough for twice-a-day use, Clarisonic devices are the #1 most recommended by US dermatologists. Clarisonic's award-winning devices are distributed through dermatologists, cosmetic surgeons, spas, prestige retailers and online at Clarisonic.com. Clarisonic is headquartered in Redmond, Washington, USA and is part of the L'Oréal Group.

Twenty-eight to 30 female subjects were enrolled in each split-face designed study (comparing two methods of cleansing for sunscreen removal: sonic cleansing vs. manual cleansing randomized to right or left cheeks for each subject). Amount of sunscreen, cleansing time, amount of cleanser, and amount of water were standardized in each study. Sunscreen was applied to each treatment area on each side of the face at 2mg/cm2 to comply with the industry standard recommendations. Following sunscreen application, subjects waited in a control climate room for 15 minutes prior to cleansing.
