Needs Solar Beauty SPF 70 sunscreen packaging.

-It’s the dead of winter in the northern hemisphere, but in Brazil, it’s midsummer, so the sun is on everyone’s mind and skin. Even at home or in the office, solar rays cause damage to the skin, as does the blue light from electronic devices. But 70% of Brazilians do not use sunscreen on a daily basis. To raise awareness about the need for sunscreen use in enclosed environments, the Zmes agency has created a new product for Needs: The Indoor Protector. More than 20 influencers received what appeared to be Needs’ new release at their homes: Sunscreen for enclosed spaces. But after opening the package, beneath the label of the new sunscreen was the traditional Needs Solar Beauty SPF 70 sunscreen, reinforcing the brand’s commitment to high-quality skincare products regardless of the environment.
