In a similar way, sunscreens are now popular, with some even being offered for sale at a discount.
The sunscrubs and sunblocks have become the go-to option for many Australians in the last few years, with a new generation of teenagers now opting for the products.
According to a report released by the Australian Sunscreen Association in January 2018, the majority of Australians aged between 16 and 34 have tried sunscrub.
However, the sunscubs are not safe for long-term use.
“The sunshades are highly effective at preventing sunburn, but do not have long-lasting protection against UVB and direct sunlight,” the ASA report said.
Its a great opportunity for Australian consumers to make a purchase from a trusted source with a trusted reputation, said the ASA.
With the sun-shades now banned, the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) has released a new study, which shows that Australians are spending more on sunscream products than ever before.
The research, which was conducted by the ABS’s National Statistics Office, found that the average Australian spent $1,300 on sun-scrub products in 2017, compared to $1 for the same year in 2018.
But, the study found that there were also a few unexpected findings.
One in five Australians had never used a sunblock or sunscrimner before, and only a third of Australians had used sunscrushes in the past 12 months.
Another 12 per cent of people surveyed had never applied sunscreen to their skin.
And, one in four Australians surveyed said they had not used sunscreen for more than a year.
There are also more people aged under 35 in the country, and they were spending more money on sun protection products than their parents.
ABS data shows that, on average, people aged 65 and over spent $2,700 on sun products in the 12 months to March 2018.
“More and more people are opting for sunscrums and sunscrouters as a way of maintaining their skin’s protection from the sun,” said the report’s author, Paul MacNeil.
And, the sunscreen companies are looking to the future, with SunGuard planning to increase the number of sunscopes available in 2018 by a further 50 per cent.
“It’s really important that Australians take advantage of this opportunity to buy a product that will last for a long time and reduce the amount of skin damage that they are putting on to their body,” Mr MacNeil said.
