Phototonic - Light Shifting Solution SPF 25 Broad Spectrum Facial Sunscreen
Clean, elegant mineral sunscreen is finally here!!! Photonic provides sun protection
plus daily moisture and an intensive load of phytonutrients so you can enjoy your time catching rays. While many sunscreens focus on being just a barrier product this recipe is dense with antioxidants, vitamins, phytonutrients, and skin supportive compounds. Zinc oxide offers stable, broad-spectrum protection that chemical sunscreens just cannot match. Many chemical sunscreens absorb only UVA or UVB light. UVA absorbent chemical sunscreens are notoriously unstable. They degrade when exposed to sunlight, right when you need them most! Minerals like zinc have no such problem, as they reflect both types of rays easily. That means you keep more of the deeply penetrating UVA rays off you.
All skin types and ages
- Broad-spectrum sunscreen protects from both UVA and UVB rays
- Additional botanicals that provide natural environmental protection
- Applies translucent
- Glides on smoothly
- Moisturizes without clogging pores
Use this as a complete replacement to daily moisturizer, or choose to layer with a serum or moisturizer underneath for extra nourishment. We do recommend that Photonic be applied as a final layer in the skincare routine so as not to disturb the distribution of the mineral on skin. Therefore oil serums should *not* be applied on top of this product as the oils could move the zinc around.
