Photonic – Light Shifting Solution SPF 25 Broad Spectrum Facial Sunscreen + Moisturizer
Loaded with an abundance of antioxidants, vitamins, phytonutrients, and skin-supportive compounds, Photonic not only provides sun protection, but also daily moisture and a banquet of nourishment. Providing SPF 25 broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection with micronized, uncoated, non-nano zinc oxide that reflects the sun’s rays (rather than absorb them like conventional sunscreens), and complemented with oils like argan, tamanu, and red raspberry seed that have been used for centuries to protect skin from the elements in sun-intense global environments.
With the addition of conditioning and emollient squalene, Niacinamide at 3% to support the appearance of even skin tone and help provide all-day hydration retention, gotu kola and black tea to support the skin’s resilience, and violet leaf to tone and soothe, Photonic is next-level sun protection. And it has a lovely pink hue to it, but it’s not a tint – it’s astaxanthin. This red algae is grown in controlled tanks in Hawaii and produces a super pure CO2 oleoresin extract. Astaxanthin has a good deal of study behind it showing its antioxidant action and ability to support the body’s natural defenses. The hue will disappear into your natural skin tone without changing it. Oh the magic of colorful nutrients.
