These products include but are not limited to sunscreens, UV-protective garments & apparel, sunglasses, shade items, and solar, and other radiation warning devices.

** CANSA approves Nivea sunscreen, however, our SunSmart Seal will not appear on their sunscreen as their product containers/packaging are printed in Basel in Germany – South Africa represents less than 1 % of their annual sunscreen turnover and so it does not warrant printing a separate range with the CANSA Seal, just for South Africa. Nivea sunscreen is also packaged and wrapped on pallets in Basel, from where it is sent directly to the various retail distribution centres in South Africa, which dis-allows the local branch even to apply CANSA stickers. However, Nivea applies the CANSA SunSmart Choice Seal to their promotion material.

UV-Protective Garments & Apparel

Look out for CANSA’s swing tags (below) & SunSmart Choice logo (top right) on clothing, hats & summer fun accessories.
