ALL DAY UV Défense is a pure mineral sunscreen for sensitive skin that protects from UVA and UVB with the highest PPD rating of PA++++. On top of that, it protects against UV rays, delivers stabilized Vitamin C deep into the dermis of the skin, and provide anti-aging benefits.
The Stabilized Vitamin C protects skin against damage caused by active oxygen from UV exposure.
The Peptides stimulate collagen synthesis, improve skin density and relieve wrinkles.
The 100% mineral UV filter physically reflects ultraviolet ray, without being absorbed by the skin.
1. Apply liberally and evenly to all exposed areas before sun exposure
2. Reapply at least every two hours, and more often if you’re swimming or sweating.
SPF is a measure of how long a person can stay in the sun before its UVB rays start to burn the skin. For example, an SPF 50 will theoretically allow you to stay in the sun 50 times longer without getting burned
QUICK FACTS: Do you know that above SPF 50 the amount of additional sun protection is negligible? The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends always using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or SPF 30 or higher for extended stays outdoors.
It’s essential for a sunscreen to offer broad spectrum protection, which means that it offers effective protection against both UVA (ultraviolet A) and UVB (ultraviolet B) rays, the solar wavelengths proven to damage the skin.
Do you know that UVA rays penetrate the skin more deeply than UVB, and are the chief cause of wrinkles, sagging and other signs of aging? While UVB rays damage the skin’s upper surface and are the main cause of sunburn.
There are two main types of active sunscreen ingredients:
Absorbs into the skin and then absorbs UV rays, converts the rays into heat, and releases them from the body. The active ingredients in chemical sunscreens include avobenzone, octinoxate and oxybenzone.
MINERAL SUNSCREEN (OR PHYSICAL SUNSCREEN)
Sits on top of the skin and reflects the sun’s rays. The minerals titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are the main active ingredients in physical blocks.
PA simply means Protection Grade of UVA rays, which is used to measure the SPF of a sunscreen. This Japanese measurement ranking which is now widely used, is based on the Persistent Pigment Darkening (PPD) reaction reading at 2-4 hours of sun exposure. Protective grade of sunscreen is often leveled as PA+, PA++, PA+++ with the more plus sign the more protection from UVA rays. PA++++ provides the best UVA protection with a factor of PPD of more than 16. It is the highest protection grade!
• 100% Mineral UV Filter (Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide) - An inorganic UV component that physically reflects ultraviolet light without being absorbed by the skin.
• Vitabrid CG (Active & Stable Vitamin C)- Prevents skin damage caused by ultraviolet exposure and protects skin against damage caused by active oxygen from ultraviolet rays.
• Peptibrid- Increased collagen synthesis increases skin density and the wrinkle reduction effect.
• Tomato Extract - The lycopene in tomatoes protects skin cells and prevents aging by removing harmful oxygen generated by ultraviolet rays.
• Niacinamide - Vitamin B complex that inhibits pigmentation, making the overall skin tone more even.
• Adenosine - Promotes proliferation of fibroblasts to relieve wrinkle.
