Institut Esthederm suncare products relate to four skin types and four levels of sun intensity :

4 DIFFERENT SKIN TYPES
. Normal skin: tans quickly, generally olive complexion and rarely burns
. Sensitive skin: burns more quickly than it tans. Generally fair to pale and goes red easily like that of young children
. Intolerant skin: reacts abnormally when exposed to the sun: redness, burning sensation and discomfort
. Highly reactive skin: skin which has been affected by medical or hormonal treatments, pregnant women, scar tissue and brown patches (pigmentation).

4 LEVELS OF SUN INTENSITY
GENTLE SUN = 1 SUN: Spring/Fall/Early morning or late afternoon sun (UV index 1 to 4)
NORMAL TO STRONG SUN = 2 SUNS: Summer sun/Normal exposure conditions (UV index 5 to 8)
