Here Comes the Sun(screen)

by Mollie Jensen March 16, 2018

Did you know that the sun—even though it can feel glorious on our skin—is the number one cause of skin aging and damage? And that’s not just from basking on the beach, but also the incidental sun we get while going about our typical daily routine as well. In fact, it only takes 15 minutes a day of unprotected exposure to UV rays to cause damage and accelerate aging.

And since life is often busiest in the light of day, we want to make sure you stay protected—even if the only sunlight you see is going to and from the car. Our new Squalane + Mineral SPF 45 helps protect against whatever the environment throws your way—from the sun’s rays, to infrared light, to pollution—so you can rest assured that we’ve got you covered.

This daily facial sunscreen not only keeps your skin ready to take on the day, it also makes a fantastic makeup primer. The weightless, mineral-rich formula glides on to reflect damaging UVA and UVB light away from your skin, while blurring the look of lines and imperfections to create the perfect canvas. This light-diffusing action means that even without makeup Squalane + Mineral SPF 45 helps the skin look more luminous. Why wouldn’t you want that to be part of your daily routine?

Look for Squalane + Mineral SPF 45, coming soon on March 20!

My lifelong obsession with the world of beauty started at an early age and kicked off right out of high school as a makeup artist. My dreams of being the next big thing in Hollywood took a detour as I discovered esthetics and became fascinated with how the skin functions. From there I worked post-operatively with patients in a burn trauma unit, helping them care for their skin and conceal their scars. This led to product formulation and the world of aromatherapy where I began my career in product development. As a consultant for several years working with many startups, I quickly became the go-to in helping launch and rebrand product lines, my specialties in product formulation, regulatory compliant copywriting and building cohesive brand personalities. My love of natural and sustainable beauty led me to Biossance, where I happily reside as Senior Marketing Manager for new product development.

I really hope it’s fragrance/fragrant plant oil free! I could really use a new mineral sunscreen.

Sounds great – will this be all mineral sunscreen? Or mix of chemical and mineral sunscreen? I hope it’s the all mineral option.

We all know that our skin is the first line of defense against the outside world, but did you know that this protective barrier also has a protective barrier of its own? That’s right, it’s your skin’s natural moisture barrier, which is an important part in keeping you—and your skin—healthy. And we’re all about healthy skin at Biossance.
