Brighten Your Outlook: Altruist Sunscreen and Skincare Products

Jan 25th 2024

The sun’s rays can be both a source of vitality and a potential threat to your skin and eyes. The delicate skin around the eyes is particularly susceptible to damage, making it essential to choose skincare products that offer comprehensive protection. In fact, 10% of all skin cancers occur around the eye area. At Brownbills Optometrists, we want to ensure that you have the best products available to protect your eyes and your skin from the impact of harmful UV rays.

With this in mind, we are thrilled to announce that we are now stocking ALTRUIST Sunscreen & Skincare products, which will safeguard your skin and eyes. 

ALTRUIST was developed by Consultant Dermatologist, Dr Andrew Birnie, in partnership with some of the best formulation scientists in Europe. Their mission is to reduce the incidence of skin cancer through the increased use of quality sunscreen together with better education and awareness. Over 80% of all skin cancers are preventable, and so it is hugely important that we all wear sunscreen and follow safe sun advice!

Some of the key features of these products include:

Broad-Spectrum UV Protection

Altruist Sunscreen provides broad-spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB rays, ensuring that your skin is shielded from the entire spectrum of harmful sunlight. By extension, this also contributes to the safeguarding of your eyes from potential damage.

Non-Greasy and Fast Absorbing

One common concern with sunscreen around the eye area is the potential for product migration and discomfort. Altruist’s non-greasy and fast- absorbing formula eliminates this worry, allowing you to apply it seamlessly around the eyes for all-day protection.The gentle formulation minimises the risk of irritation, making it suitable for those with sensitive skin and eyes.


Whether you’re lounging by the pool or engaging in outdoor activities, Altruist Sunscreen’s water-resistant properties ensure that your eye area stays protected even in challenging conditions. It is still important to make sure you re-apply your sunscreen regularly!

Altruist’s dedication to provide high quality and affordable sunscreen resonates with our commitment to promoting our patients’ overall eye health and well-being. By incorporating these products into your routine, you’re not just investing in a radiant complexion; you’re safeguarding your health.
