Instead, a refined dispersion of micronised ZnO and TiO2 in flexible, high-volatility, non-comedogenic silicone’s allows the formulations to remain extremely lightweight by optimising the amount of the blocking agents. Use daily for full protection and stay sun-safe always.
Stay protected, stay safe and stay in the know when it comes to SPF and other kinds of sun protection. The British Association of Dermatologists aim to make you aware of what to look for in sun damage, encourage regular self-checks for any signs of skin cancer, and urge you to use sunscreen regularly.
