Not wearing sunscreen is a cardinal sin for any skin care devotee – but if you’re put off by memories of thick, pore-clogging formulas, it can be easy to avoid it. Enter, The Ordinary. Stripping back unnecessary packaging and misleading ingredients, every product in the range is game-changing and this SPF is no exception. Combining ultra-refined zinc oxide and titanium dioxide (no nanoparticles) with a bio-active antioxidant network, a hydration complex, skin-identical non-comedogenic lipids and Tasmanian pepperberry, this formula offers innovative SPF protection and free radical-fighting, nourishing support.
An innovative take on sunscreen that does so much more than guard your complexion against the harmful, ageing effects of the sun (though it does that very well indeed) The Ordinary’s Mineral UV Filters SPF 30 with Antioxidants offers unrivalled protection. Avoiding the use of nanoparticles (these are small enough to penetrate your skin and get inside your body), The Ordinary has formulated this sunscreen with ultra-refined zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, suspended within non-comedogenic (non-pore-blocking) silicones. This allows the formula to remain extremely lightweight and prevent it from over-burdening your skin. An advanced antioxidant complex scavenges and neutralises free radicals, minimizes the intensity of UV radiation penetrating the skin, while a bio-sugar complex provides both short and long-term hydration and also naturally increases skin’s own capacity to hold water. Finally, Tasmanian pepperberry helps to calm stressed skin for a soothed finish.
