It is very important to protect your skin from the sun also in the winter. With every 1,000 meters up the mountain, the UV radiation becomes 12% more intense. Because the snow reflects the sun on your face, it has five times stronger effect than while sunbathing on the beach. Buy your Piz Buin products today and protect your skin!

The idea of creating Piz Buin was born in 1938 in the mountains between Switzerland and Austria. Franz Greiter got there a severe sunburn while running. He opened his own laboratory in his home and developed a product that would protect the skin from the harmful effects of the sun. He called it 'Glacier Crème’, which he later changed to Piz Buin. In this way, Greiter introduced not only the world's first sun protection, but also the Sun Protection Factor (SPF).
Protect yourself from the harmful cosequences of a sunburn, including skin aging, cancer, sun allergies or photosensitivity. Using sunscreen is necessary if you want to protect your skin. You will be able to enjoy skiing and won’t come back home with painful and red face. Moreover, if you happen to sweat or get wet from the snow – it is not a problem because Piz Buin is water and sweat resistant. Apart from the suncream, SkiWebShop also offers Piz Buin After Sun that moisturizes the skin.
