The P20 story
In 1979, Claus Riemann wanted to help a friend with sensitive skin keep protected during a stay in Africa. The solution he invented was P20, which has now been protecting people from the sun for four decades. Mr. Riemann’s spirit of personal devotion and earnest scientific endeavour guides our brand to this very day.
P20’s unique formulation is lightweight, meaning it is easily absorbed into the skin with no visible trace or sticky feel in just 15 minutes, meaning no hanging around! What’s more, it contains no added fragrances or colourants.
Pack sun care that works as hard as you do when you head out into the sun at whatever time of year.
Whether you’re hitting the track, the trail, park, pool or pitch, you’ll need high-performing protection against the sun’s rays that won’t let you down.
P20’s unique lightweight formulations is highly water-resistant, meaning that it keeps intact protection levels even after frequent swimming. So don’t be slowed down by constant re-application of sun cream.
P20’s broad spectrum UV protection ensures you are fully protected when enjoying the outdoors. The range offers UVB protection as well as very high UVA protection that shields the skin from sun-related damage and premature aging. The UVA protection in P20 far exceeds EU recommendations, and is therefore rated 5 out of 5 stars. (SPF50 and SP50+ is 4 stars)
“P20 sunscreen was with me in Hawaii for the Ironman World Championship in 2014.
The sun in Hawaii was very strong, and it was crucial to me to have a suncreen that works both in the water, on land and when I was sweating.
There are many sunscreen products on the market. But not all feel comfortable on the skin, are water resistant or stay on even when sweating. P20 does. It keeps its promises and provides quality protection.
I crossed the finish line after 10 hours and 23 minutes in the sun without getting sunburnt.
I know, I expect a lot from a suncreen: to be long lasting, to be very water resistant and to be non greasy. But P20 is all of these things and I feel completely secure in the sun, when I am protected by P20.” Cecilie Mathorne.
Cecilie Mathorne was ranked as no. 5 in her age group at the Ironman World Championship 2014 in Hawaii.
Michael Hestbæk is a professional sailor, who has participated in four Olympic Games. He has also won over 25 European and World Championships medals. Michael Hestbæk says: “I have not used anything else than P20 Sunscreen in recent years because it keeps its sun protection for many hours and is highly water resistant, which is important when I’m sailing. It’s comfortable that it absorbs into the skin immediately, so I actually do not feel that I have it on. “

‘The others were covered in sunscreen, so they were pure white and many were sunburnt, which is a nuisance. It means a lot to reduce any hassle, because you’ve trained for 2-3 years and are under pressure and sleeping so little…’ says Aske.
‘P20 was easy for the team to apply and I could breathe in it and got no sun damage.
