Solar D - sun protection and vitamin D

What a great idea! These guys have done their research and created a sunscreen that allows us to still get our all important Vitamin D. Solar D sunscreen is designed to let in more of the UVB rays that your body uses to naturally produce vitamin D whilst also screening out the harmful UV rays. An extract from their website...

Did you also know that studies show that 1 in 3 Australians are now Vitamin D deficient?
Our lifestyle also adds to the problem. Working in buildings or driving a car, wearing long clothing, and cloud cover can all filter this vitamin D forming light. According to a recent article in the Harvard Medical Schools Health Publication β€œSunscreens are a dilemma, because they block UVB light (that your body uses to produce vitamin D).
