Skin exposure to UV rays can generate the so called “free-radicals”, therefore premature ageing. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can cause damage to cell membranes and trigger sensitivity and inflammation. Several factors contribute to oxidative stress and excess free radical production, for instance diet, lifestyle, cigarette smoke, exposure to pollution and radiation.
Dermalogica’s latest solution Invisible Physical Defense SPF 30 has been designed to help skin increase levels of antioxidants and decrease the formation of free radicals.
This invisible, lightweight and unique sunscreen blends perfectly on all skin tones, and it’s a great solution for the most sensitive skin. The formula contains ultra-sheer Zinc Oxide for an invisible finish, protection against skin-damaging UV rays as well as skin soothing, free radical-fighting naturals.
Perfect for everyday life, it protects also from blue light – sunlight is the main source, but it comes also from computers, smartphones and other digital devices.
The key ingredients of the formulation are:
Ultra-sheer Zinc Oxide
It provides broad spectrum protection and invisible dry-down, it stops UV rays from penetrating your skin and it’s less likely to cause irritation (chemical sunscreens might irritate the most sensitive skin as they work by converting and scattering UV radiation into heat, while physical ones create a barrier).
Bioactive Mushroom Complex (Cordyceps Sinensis and Trametes Versicolor Extract)
Powerful actives that help soothe skin and reduce UV-induced redness and dryness.
Antioxidant Green Tea
Green Tea is rich in polyphenols and that’s why it has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-microbial properties. Green Tea is great to fight free radical damage from UV and visible light and it represents an effective remedy for many skin conditions.
Argan Oil, Vitamin E and Bisabolol
Argan Oil is rich in Vitamin E, or Tocopherol, a potent antioxidant that reduces the damaging effects of free radicals. Its anti-inflammatory properties reduce inflammations and oxidative stress.
Sodium Hyaluronate molecules are very small and can penetrate deep into the layers of the skin. It helps to restore skin’s moisture, soothes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving therefore your skin complexion and texture.
