Survey results for
May/July: Sun Protection Survey
Following our survey on Sun Awareness in September 2016, we launched our Sun Protection survey a year later to gain further insights into how our members protect themselves in the sunshine.
Here are the top highlights from the survey:
- 88% of participants used some form of sun protection, with Nivea being the most popular choice
- Close to half only used SPF when it is sunny, with other forms of protection also being used such as sunglasses (80%), clothing cover-ups (60%) and sunhats (54%) and 75% choosing to sit in the shade when it’s hot
- Of those with skin cancer, most believed their skin cancer was caused by excessive sun exposure
