Protect from the sun with this antioxidant-infused hydrating mineral sunscreen from cult favorite brand The Ordinary.
Mineral UV Filter formulas avoid the use of nanoparticles. In contrast, a refined dispersion of micronized ZnO and TiO2 in non-comedogenic flexible silicones and high volatility allows the formulations to remain extremely light by optimizing the amount of blocking agents. Our formulation uses mainly ZnO for its protective effects (because in addition to reflecting / refracting light, ZnO is also capable of absorbing UV rays without creating oxygen radicals) and the support TiO2 it contains is only in rutile form (there is no a form of anatase). TiO2 is used at all since it is an aggressive producer of free radicals.
The technologies shared in the formulas of the mineral UV filters are:
Bio-Active Antioxidant Network: A powerful combination that eliminates and neutralizes free radicals, minimizes the intensity of UV radiation that penetrates the skin, visibly protects biological membranes and supports the skin's response to exposure to UV rays.
Bio-Sugar Complex: A unique blend of hygroscopic molecules with multilayer coverage that provides short and long term hydration and also naturally increases the ability of the skin to retain water.
Skin Idential Lips: Lipids that visibly restore the compromised barrier and prevent the loss of transepidermal water.
Tasmanian Pepperberry: Rich in flavanones, anthocyanins and minerals, this active technology helps soothe stressed skin, acting almost immediately.
Alcohol-Free. Gluten-Free. Cruelty-Free. Vegan.
Apply to face liberally and evenly 15 to 20 minutes before UV exposure. If continued UV exposure is expected, to maintain protection, reapply at least every 2 hours or after material water exposure, towel-drying, swimming or extensive perspiration. Suitable for all skin tones. For children under 6 months of age, consult a physician prior to use. Use a water-resistant sunscreen if swimming or sweating. For external use only. When using this product keep out of eyes. Rinse with water to remove. If irritation occurs, cease use and consult a physician. Use only as directed on unbroken skin. Patch testing prior to use is advised.
