Lives up to its hypoallergenic claims as it caused no irritation or redness. Full marks for effectiveness and a big smile on cost and on minimal packaging. Highly recommended.

This is the best sun cream I've ever used, it's unbelievably non-sticky, in fact it does not feel like sunscreen at all. A very good alternative to your standard run-of-the-mill sunscreens

THE FORMULATION EXPLAINED

UV protection

A broad range of photostable and photostabilised UV filters, including the most advanced filter available Tinosorb A2B, to ensure that quality protection is provided across the whole UVA/UVB spectrum. All of these are formulated at moderate concentrations in order to avoid any adverse reaction. This results in high quality UVA and UVB protection, exceeding EU standards.

Moisturising

To keep sufficient moisture in the skin glycerine (3 %) and panthenol (0.3 %) are formulated into the water phase at moderate concentration, to maintain hydration without exaggerating the moisturising effect associated with excessive glycerine.

Emulsion

The emulsion is formulated to optimise the distribution of sun filters on the skin, resulting in high SPF levels.

Preservatives

Molecules with known allergic potential like parabens, CMIT, MIT, bronopol, benzyl alcohol, IPBC etc. are avoided. Therefore a mixture of phenoxyethanol (0.3 %), silver choride (20 ppm), piroctone olamine (0.1 %) supported by caprylyl glycol was selected. This combination is especially designed to avoid the odour of many preservatives and to minimise any risk of skin sensitisation or allergy.
