Buying discounted sunscreen online? You might be getting a fake

Counterfeit sunscreen products sold online may lack a sunscreen filter, raising the risk of UV damage and skin cancer, doctors say.

Online shopping for skincare products often offers enticing deals, but the allure of discounted sunscreen may come with a hidden risk. Counterfeit sunscreen products available online might lack essential sunscreen filters, significantly elevating the potential for UV damage and skin cancer, caution medical professionals.

While we all appreciate a great bargain, it's crucial to consider the authenticity and effectiveness of products bought from unofficial online sources. A recent article from CNA, dated October 24, 2022, highlights the amplified risk associated with counterfeit sunscreen products.

For those interested in the basic Heliocare suncare range, secure purchases can be made directly from Dermaskinshop's Official Site or Dermaskinshop's Official Shopee Mall. For access to a broader range such as Heliocare 360°, we recommend consulting our comprehensive list of authorized stockists.

To ensure the authenticity of your purchased products, Heliocare offers a unique QR code verification system. By scanning this code, users can validate the authenticity of their items. If uncertainty arises regarding the authenticity of a Heliocare product, we encourage you to contact us for guidance and clarification.
