A sunscreen with a cashmere matte finish that can be applied to the face, neck, chest, and hands, daily! Zinc oxide provides consistent and photo-stable protection against UVB and UVA rays. It’s soothing and calming to the skin, which is why mothers apply zinc oxide to their babies’ bottoms. Our specially formulated Encapsulated Octinoxate is a unique and important innovation. Conventional octinoxate molecules are extremely small, roughly 1/2 a nanometer in size, and have been linked with potential hormonal health and marine ecology issues. Encapsulated octinoxate is coated with safe and inert silica, derived from sand, to make it a huge particle that is roughly 10 000 x larger in size. This ensure it sits on the surface of the skin, reduces any chance of photo-allergy and its impact on coral health. It’s an important innovation and one worth considering when choosing a sunscreen.
This 15% zinc oxide and 7.5% encapsulated octinoxate blend applies transparently and smoothly on all skin types and tones. It provides just the right amount of hydration for many but pairs nicely with our H2O Hydration. It is also perfect for those with combination, oily or acneic skin. This is an essential for both young and mature skin and provides essential daily protection.
