The Australian summer for 2022 is forecast to be full of surprises with plenty of rain. Though, one thing we can guarantee, is each Australian summer brings plenty of heat and an increase in UV intensity.

For example, across Australian capital cities the Australian UV Index in June (mid winter) has a rating of 2, which is considered relatively safe for the skin. Below 3, sun protection isn't recommended unless you are outdoors for extended periods or near reflective surfaces, like snow and water.

Come January (mid summer)  the UV Index across Australia on average reaches 11 so mandatory UPF, SPF and UV protection is required.

Whenever the UV index is reaching above 3 and you’re heading outside it may be worth giving your skin some special care with Soléo Organics extra lite.


Well firstly, it protects against both UVA rays (skin ageing and wrinkling) and UVB rays (skin burning), while most everyday sunscreens only protect against UVB rays.

It’s 100% natural, with no chemical or synthetic preservatives, it uses micronized zinc rather than the nano zinc so it’s broad spectrum which is very important when under the Australian sun.

This natural everyday sunscreen is hypoallergenic, cruelty-free, ocean, freshwater and reef safe, comes in recyclable packaging and is totally biodegradable. Good for skin, good for the environment and better yet it’s manufactured right here in Australia.

I personally use it when on the move outside and not just at the beach. Remember UV rays are everywhere! So, I should add the extra lite also acts as a natural moisturiser which makes it perfect for everyday use.

So enjoy your summer, especially outside. So choose Soleo, wear sun protective and a hat.
