Product Description

Primary Function:
A whipped, antioxidant-rich sunscreen that naturally protects your skin from UV-related damage, including premature aging and hyperpigmentation. This transparent, all zinc protection helps to lightly hydrate, even the appearance of skin tone, and perfect your skin’s overall look. Recommended For: All skin types. Face and body.

Featured Ingredients

Zinc Oxide:A physical UV filter that is considered to be one of the safest and most effective sunscreens available today. It protects against UVA (aging rays that penetrate and affect the dermis) and UVB (burning rays that penetrate and affect the epidermis and upper parts of the dermis). The zinc particles used in this product are less than 50 nanometers in size. Although they are nano-sized, the particles REMAIN ON THE SURFACE. Nearly all studies performed show no absorption of small-scale zinc ingredients into the dermis through healthy, non-compromised skin. The zinc particles in our sunscreen are also coated to prevent the small particles from clumping together and diminishing sun protection, allowing for a complete and even layer of protection.

Bellis Perennis (Daisy) Flower Extract:
A natural skin-lightening agent derived from daisy flowers. This extract effectively diminishes the appearance of age spots, pigmentation disorders, and freckles through a multi-tiered approach: inhibits tyrosinase, prevents the activation of MSH (melanin stimulating hormone), and reduces the melanosome transfer to keratincoytes.
Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower Extract, Ferula Assa Foetida Root Extract, Pyrus Communis (Pear) Fruit Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract:
A synergistic blend of direct and indirect antioxidants that provides 100% protection to skin cells when introduced to UV exposure and completely inhibits UV-induced (mutated) cell production.

Sodium Hyaluronate:
The salt of hyaluronic acid, Sodium Hyaluronate has a smaller molecular weight, allowing it to deeply penetrate the skin while attracting and locking in moisture. General Theory [UV Exposure and Sun Protection]
Exposure to Ultraviolet Light is a major factor in skin aging and, over periods of time, can damage collagen fibers, increase wrinkles, compromise the immune system, and increase the risk for cancer.
The sun emits a broad spectrum of electromagnetic energy waves that radiate toward the earth. Most of the wavelengths are filtered out by the earth’s atmosphere, with the exception of UVA and UVB rays, which are responsible for causing skin aging and skin cancer.

UVA and UVB rays have some uniquely important differences. UVA rays are longer rays and are believed to penetrate more deeply into the skin, causing damage to collagen and dermal cells. UVA rays cause skin tanning, age spots, and wrinkles, as well as contribute to the development of skin cancer. UVB rays are shorter, more powerful rays that affect the epidermis and are responsible for sunburns. Research shows that chronic exposure to UVB rays can cause direct DNA damage, affect the immune system, and lead to various types of skin cancer, including malignant melanoma, the most deadly form.
Avoiding UV rays is impossible, but there are steps we can take to reduce negative effects of the sun. Studies show that many people do not use sunscreens properly, either because they do not apply enough product or they do not reapply frequently.

Application:
Apply liberally on the face (as the final step in your skincare regime) and body, 20 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply often, or as needed during sun exposure. Use daily. Companion Products:
Zinc Oxide Perfecting Sunscreen SPF 27 is an essential step in all skin care regimes, especially when treating individuals with Epicuren® professional peel treatments, or for those using exfoliating products for home care. Utilize the Zinc Oxide Perfecting Sunscreen SPF 27 with products like the CXc Vitamin C Complex, Alpha Lipoic Omega Facial Serum, ORAC Age-Protect Serum, or Noni Skin Elixir to help further prevent the damaging effects of free radicals and UV rays.
