Additional Information

Why it works

Your mineral sunscreen must-have! Lightweight, sheer and easy to apply, this tinted mattifying fluid sunscreen features a powerful combination of SPF 50 broad spectrum protection against the look of UVA/UVB-induced aging with potent antioxidants and a Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA) complex to protect and strengthen skin's moisture barrier against environmental aggressors. Formulated exclusively with mineral sunscreens Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide, this formula does not leave creases, is not whitening and compatible with makeup!

Gluconolactone: a Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA) that is found naturally in the skin and provides antiaging and gentle exfoliating benefits without sun sensitivity. It is a welcome choice for sensitive skin types as it strengthens the skin’s moisture barrier leaving it more resilient, while also providing potent antioxidant benefits.

Lactobionic Acid: part of the Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA) family and is derived from natural sugars. It helps to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, discoloration, enlarged pores and roughness through gentle exfoliation, while also attracting moisture for added hydration and comfort.

Ideal for anyone seeking a sheer tint mineral SPF. Sheer Physical Protection Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 is appropriate for all skin types, especially sensitive skin.

Dermatologist & Allergy tested. Non-comedogenic. Non-acnegenic.
