DESCRIPTION: Protect against damaging UVA, UVB and Blue Light with this lightweight, water-resistant sunscreen lotion. Formulated with non-nano zinc and antioxidant-rich California Poppy, this physical formulation provides an effective shield from skin-aging rays, while being gentle and pleasant feeling on the skin. Smooth, nourishing formula blends evenly onto skin with limited white residue.
HOW TO USE: Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply after 40 minutes of swimming or sweating; immediately after towel drying; at least every 2 hours. Children under 6 months: Ask a doctor.
Technology: Beautycounter prohibits chemical SPF filters due to their high potential for skin irritation. It prefers to use physical sunscreens, more commonly known as mineral sunscreen. Zinc oxide or titanium dioxide, sit on the surface of the skin and physically bounce or reflect sun’s rays away from the skin. Mineral sunscreens are great for people with sensitive skin as well as babies and kids.
Formula: Beautycounter never uses Octinoxate or Oxybenzone, ingredients known to contribute to the collapse of coral reefs around the world, making their sunscreens safer for both people and our oceans.
