Photonic - Light Shifting Solution SPF 25 Facial Sunscreen + Moisturizer
Photonic has super clean ingredients, spreads on like a dream, and leaves a flawless finish on skin while providing SPF 25 Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB protection. It's also suitable for sensitive skin, and the intensive botanicals it carries provide your skin a banquet of nourishment.
While many sunscreens focus on being just a barrier product this recipe is dense with antioxidants, vitamins, phytonutrients and skin supportive compounds. Oils like Argan and Tamanu hail from global environments where sun is intense, and have been used for centuries to protect skin from the elements. Raw, organic Sesame seed oil, Red Raspberry seed oil, and Blackberry seed oil add lightweight, allergy-conscious nutrition that supports the zinc oxide's sun protective benefits. Conditioning squalane in the emollient mix means we don't need any clogging silicones to suspend our mineral particles. That's great news for acne-prone skin, as silicones can cause congestion.
Niacinamide at 3% supports the appearance of even skin tone and helps provide all-day hydration retention to keep your skin plump and comfortable. Herbs like Black Tea, Gotu Kola, and Hydrangea support skin's resilience and healthy appearance. Wild harvested, organically cultivated violet leaf tones and soothes skin with rutin, and mucilage.
Photonic has a lovely pink hue to it, but it's not just a tint, it's Astaxanthin. This red algae ingredient is grown in controlled tanks in Hawaii and produces a super pure CO2 oleoresin extract. Astaxanthin has a good deal of study behind it showing its antioxidant action and ability to support the body in stressful situations like sun exposure. The amount used will not noticeably stain the skin. The hue will disappear into the natural skin tone without changing it. That's the magic of colorful nutrients.
Use this as a complete replacement to daily moisturizer, or choose to layer with a serum or moisturizer underneath for extra nourishment. It's recommended that Photonic be applied as a final layer in the skincare routine so as not to disturb the distribution of the mineral on skin. Therefore oil serums should *not* be applied on top of this product as the oils could move the zinc around.
