We’ve Got You Covered

You may not think you need sunscreen every day, but sure enough, you do. Think of it this way, the sun is the number one cause of skin aging and damage. If you don’t protect yourself from the sun’s rays, then you’re asking the other hard-working products in your routine to help rewind prior damage while you’re creating more. And that’s just not fair. Enter, Squalane + Mineral SPF 30 to save the day—not to mention your face.

What’s so special about our new sunscreen? For starters, it’s from minerals (zinc oxide and titanium dioxide), and the reason this is important is in how minerals (also known as physical sunscreens) work differently than chemical sunscreen agents. Minerals protect by scattering UV rays away from skin. Think of them as tiny mirrors that sit on the skin’s surface to reflect away light and act as a shield to protect you. Chemical sunscreens, on the other hand, penetrate into the skin and absorb UV light, then convert the light into heat. An issue with chemical sunscreens is that they can cause skin irritation.

Another cool thing about Squalane + Mineral SPF 30 is that it not only offers broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection, it also guards against infrared radiation (IR). It does this through an ocean harvested enzyme, thermus thermophilus ferment extract. This powerful antioxidant is activated by heat and light to protect against IR, which is invisible light felt as heat on the skin and causes burning.

And because the minerals reflect light by sitting on the skin’s surface (rather than absorbing into skin), correct application is key to getting the full sun protection benefits. Apply Squalane + Mineral SPF 30 as the last step in your skincare routine, prior to makeup. The trick is to first pump it onto your fingertips and then rub your fingers together for a few seconds to help warm it up a bit. Next, smooth and blend it onto your face and neck, then press onto your skin until it becomes transparent and weightless. And yet another awesome thing about Squalane + Mineral SPF 30 is that the reflective minerals give a slight shimmer on bare skin that leaves a luminous glow and also makes the perfect primer for flawless makeup.

So, what are you waiting for? Go forth into the world and enjoy the sunshine! Fully protected with your Squalane + Mineral SPF 30, of course.

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.
