Sun Care

Essential Defense Facial Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF

BASF Corporation

This supercharged anti-pollution moisturizer provides broad-spectrum UV protection. Mariponics PSR, a marine algae extract, offers beneficial interactions with the biological sentinels of the skin, helping to protect against pollution and maintain skin’s vitality. Z-Cote LSA is a sun protection ingredient naturally derived from the earth’s crust. It provides a physical barrier against aggressive UVA and UVB radiation damage. Emulgade Sucro Plus is a natural-based emulsifier that improves formulation stability. This moisturizer's multi-action age defenders intercept damage before it starts.

Sun Care

W/O Multi-Cultural Under-Eye Concealer SPF 50+ Broad Spectrum

Croda

This multi-cultural under-eye concealer with SPF is the perfect remedy for dark circles. Sensasil PCA assists in spreadability and delivers a long-lastin,g silky after-feel. The high SPF is achieved by using Solaveil XT-300 in the oil phase, Solaveil XT-40W in the water phase and SolPerForm 100, which creates even coverage. Available in a light, medium and dark shade, this under-eye concealer is suited for any ethnicity.

Sun Care

Broad Spectrum, Water Resistant, SPF 25+ Daily Facial Moisturizer

DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products

This light-feeling w/o formulation spreads well, covers evenly and has built-in water resistance, enhanced by the use of two emollients with excellent barrier characteristics. Combining organic and inorganic sunscreen actives, along with placement of the actives in both the aqueous and emollient phases, allows for a high SPF with a relatively low level of active. The formula achieves protection beyond broad spectrum, with a critical wave length of 377.8 nm. The success of the formulation is attributed to Zemea propanediol, which keeps the water-soluble actives in solution through the evaporation process when the product is applied to skin.

Skin Care

W/O Broad Spectrum Protection Daily Facial Moisturizer

DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products

This light-feeling formulation uses Zemea propanediol to maintain solubility and fluidity of the water-soluble sulisobenzone UVB/UVA absorber as the formulation water evaporates on the skin. It provides moisturization benefits and enhances freeze/thaw stability. The specially coated zinc oxide is designed to offer the highest levels of broad-spectrum protection, transparency and dispersibility. The w/o platform, stabilized by a PEG-free emulsifier, offers inherent water resistance. The emollient phase contains both volatile and solvent/emollient components, generating light application properties and the ability to incorporate other organic sunscreen actives.

Sun Care

It is preservative-free and can be customized with natural butters and oils. Biochemica Olive Butter and Biochemica Lime Butter help to soften, moisturize and rejuvenate skin, and evoke a sunshine-like scent. In vitro analysis delivered SPF ~55, PFA (PPD) ~17 performance with critical wavelength 378 nm. Water resistance surpassed 4 hr during in-house in vitro testing.
