What’s The Best Chemical-Free Sunblock For Sensitive Skin?

If you have have sensitive, easily-irritated skin, you know firsthand how difficult it can be to find the best sunblock or sunscreen that won’t cause your skin to get red and irritated. The good news is that technology has advanced and today’s sunblocks can be very compatible for sensitive skin types with the popularity of chemical-free, mineral, sunblock ingredients like micronized Zinc Oxide.

For the past year I have been working in the lab developing the best sunblock for sensitive skin, called Age Defense Moisturizer SPF 30, and I’m happy to announce that it’s now available here!

Age Defense Moisturizer SPF 30 is a luxurious 100% all-mineral, chemical-free, natural, broad spectrum sunblock (sunscreen) designed to be used as your daily moisturizer. It goes on creamy and dries to a beautiful, lightweight finish to immediately nourish and protect the skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays. Because it uses pure and natural 20% Zinc Oxide, it can be applied right before outdoor activity–no waiting 20 minutes that’s required for traditional chemical sunscreens to take effect. Your skin sensitive skin will absolutely love this!

Recommended For:
Dehydrated, Dry, Sensitive, Aging Skin or Skin Types #5#6#7#8 and #9 (If you have oily, acne-prone skin, use Daily Protection SPF 30 named “A sunscreen that won’t cause acne” by Cosmopolitan Magazine)

Key Ingredients:
20% non-nano, uncoated, micronized Zinc Oxide- offers UVA/UVB reflecting sun protection with low risk of irritation, Green and White Tea- antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits, Vitamin E- soothes and hydrates. This gentle moisturizer does not contain synthetic fragrance, colorants or parabens and is formulated for ultra sensitive skin types including those with redness and rosacea.

How It Feels / Smells / Looks:
This luxuriously creamy lotion is white in color and has a very soft and subtle hint of refreshing grapefruit. Simply put, it doesn’t smell like traditional sunscreen–which is a good thing!

To effectively use Age Defense Moisturizer SPF 30, cleanse, tone (leave alcohol-free toner damp) and apply a generous amount to entire face, neck and exposed chest. Proceed with makeup. Use 365 days a year, rain or shine, inside out as your daily moisturizer. NOTE: The white color from the Zinc Oxide should become transparent within 3-4 minutes after application except for dark skin tones.

    I am 52, premenopausal… dry..super sensitive, starting to wrinkle around lips and eyes.. deep on forehead… but still break out in acne or even cystic acne in chin if I use the wrong products. I want to try the Age Defense sunblock to prevent further wrinking.. but hate sunblocks that make your skin that “white”. tone that many sunblocks do. Does this do this?
