Perfect for daily protection and rich in antioxidants, the innovative sunscreen is reinforced with anti-pollution, anti-infrared, and anti-glycation technologies to shield skin from environmental aggressors to help prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
Non-nano formula keeps our sunscreen’s coral reef friendly - we do not use controversial filters like oxybenzone, octinoxate and nano-zinc oxide which have all been linked with coral reef damage.
Provides a semi-matte base for makeup.
Can be used to top up sun protection throughout the day.
A non-nano, mineral sunscreen filter with broad spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays.
A protective peptide that is naturally produced in the body, carnosine helps to prevent the appearance of wrinkles, while shielding skin from infrared damage.
Marrubium Vulgare Extract
A powerful antioxidant that provides essential protection to shield delicate skin from pollution-induced damage.
As the last step in your skincare routine, apply a liberal amount (¼ teaspoon or 5 pumps) of Physical Sunscreen to the face, adding more for the neck and décolletage, avoiding the eye area.
Use light, upward strokes and allow to absorb.
Reapply throughout the day as needed, and every 2 hours if in direct sunlight.
Perfect for layering over your favourite Medik8 vitamin C serum.
Non-nano mineral filter zinc oxide reflects and absorbs UV rays to protect the skin from sun damage.
Marrubium vulgare extract provides superior anti-pollution defence to limit the damage caused by environmental pollutants.
Physical Sunscreen also includes anti-glycation (also known as anti-A.G.E.) technology. Glycation is a natural ageing process that occurs when excess sugars in our body bind themselves to proteins such as collagen and elastin, transforming them into advanced glycation end products (or A.G.E.s for short). As a result, the glycated protein fibres can no longer be renewed, which can lead to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Physical Sunscreen uses carnosine to help keep skin protected from glycation-derived skin ageing. Carnosine can also protect the skin from infrared rays, which are known to play a part in the breakdown of collagen.
*Although we try our best to ensure this list of ingredients is accurate there may be product upgrades from time to time, or slight variants between different regions based on local laws, meaning the only definitive ingredient list is that which is printed on the product packaging.
One of the major components of our natural extracellular matrix, helping to maintaining a firm and supple complexion, while providing intense hydration to the skin.
Hesperidin helps to stimulate blood circulation encouraging detoxification around the eye area to eliminate the appearance of puffiness and dark circles. Hesperidin is also used as a brightening agent as it helps to suppress the transport of melanosomes to stop aggregations of melanin in the skin, leading to a reduction in pigmentation and dark circles.
Ideal for reducing the appearance of puffiness and darkness under the eyes. Able to shrink the blood vessels underneath the eye, it diminishes dark circles while firming and lifting the entire eye area.
Helps to shield against damaging environmental pollutants, able to form a film over the skin, Moringa acts as an ‘urban shield’ to bat away pollution particles before they can create free radicals leading to premature ageing and photo damage.
Blocks the glycation process and prevent A.G.E.s from being formed, inhibiting the process which causes fine lines and wrinkles. Carnosine also helps protects the skin from infrared rays which leaves collagen untouched for firm, smooth skin.
