If there is one absolutely must-have element to a quality skin care regimen, it would have to be sunscreen. The sun’s UV rays are powerful, and if your skin isn’t properly protected from them, it can result in sun damage—lines, loss of elasticity, dark spots and other kinds of hyperpigmentation and dry, rough texture. Even worse is the increased risk of skin cancer. For these reasons, sun protection is a necessity. DERMA E sunscreen products are crafted to provide the ultimate in sun care—for both you and the environment.
What is Reef-Safe Sunscreen?
We are proud to offer reef-safe sunscreen options. Sunscreens manufactured with certain chemicals, such as oxybenzone and octinoxate, have been found to be harmful to coral reefs because they have a bleaching effect. That can also pose a threat to the health of marine life. Because of the negative impact that chemical sunscreens can have on coral reefs, DERMA E formulates its biodegradable sunscreens with the non-nanoparticle mineral zinc oxide to provide broad spectrum coverage against UVA and UVB rays from the sun.
Choosing DERMA E Mineral Sunscreen
Mineral sunscreens have proven effectiveness when it comes to sun protection. So when you use DERMA E sun care products you have the confidence that you are nurturing your skin with only the best ingredients.
Our Sun Defense Mineral Oil-Free Sunscreens are perfect for everyday use because they are lightweight, non-greasy and formulated to care for your complexion while simultaneously protecting it from the elements with an SPF 30. In addition to zinc oxide, the sunscreens abound in antioxidants including Green Tea and Vitamin C, which brighten and condition the skin and help reduce the signs of aging caused by sun damage. This sunscreen comes in formulations for the face and the body for complete, head-to-toe sun protection. And because it’s even more important for infants, and their delicate skin, to stay out of the sun, DERMA E also offers Sun Defense Mineral Oil-Free Sunscreen for babies.
If you spend a great deal of time outdoors, it’s important to reapply sunscreen for protection throughout the day. This is made easy with the Sun Defense Mineral Sunscreen Stick, which is ideal for on-the-go application. Or touch up your makeup and your sunscreen at the same time with the Sun Protection Mineral Powder SPF 30. This translucent powder creates a flawless finish on your skin and is like a veil of sun protection on your face. Refreshing your skin with the powder every 2 hours ensures lasting coverage all day long.
