New SCAPE Sunblock: “Like Gore-Tex for Your Skin”

October 12, 2010 By: Alex Cerveniak

SPF 50+ Sunblock

SCAPE stands for Skin Cancer Awareness Protection & Education. Their product line was developed by Dr. Nic Martens, who earned a PhD in biochemistry from the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom, then spent 13 years developing breakthrough healthcare and skincare products for Johnson & Johnson’s Neutrogena brand.

The SCAPE products are a collaboration between Martens and two-time Ironman World Champion, Craig Alexander, and were field-tested by professional triathletes, surfers, runners, cyclists, and winter sports athletes at various stages of development prior to its launch earlier this year.

SCAPE claims to have an innovative polymer technology in their products that makes them unique in comparison to your typical gas station sunblock. More specifically, SCAPE is five times more waterproof than any other product on the market, the company says, but still allows your skin to breathe so your core body temperature won’t rise.  One reviewer said that “it’s like Gore-Tex for your skin.”   Each product is enriched with vitamin E and antioxidants to both protect and nourish your skin.
