The Skin Story Sunscreen Collection: Exploring the Science of Protection

1) Mineral Sports Sunscreen - SPF 50 with Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide

The Science: This powerhouse sunscreen harnesses the natural protection of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. These mineral-based ingredients create a physical barrier on the skin's surface, reflecting and scattering harmful UV rays away from your skin.

How It Works: Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide act as tiny mirrors, bouncing UV rays off your skin. Their larger particle sizes offer broad-spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB rays, making it an excellent choice for outdoor activities.

  • Crafted for:
  • Outdoor enthusiasts
  • Active individuals seeking broad-spectrum protection
  • Those looking for a physical barrier sunscreen

2) Moringa Sunscreen - SPF 50, PA+++, Infused with Moringa Extracts

The Science: With SPF 50 and PA+++, this sunscreen is a high-protection formula with the added benefits of Moringa extracts. Moringa's rich antioxidant content helps neutralise free radicals, preventing skin damage and premature aging caused by UV rays.

How It Works: Moringa, known for its detoxifying and purifying properties, fortifies the skin's defense system against sun-induced damage. Its inclusion in this sunscreen provides an extra layer of care and rejuvenation, making it an excellent choice for those seeking higher SPF levels and enhanced skincare benefits.

  • Ideal for:
  • Those desiring high protection with skincare benefits for daily use
  • Individuals concerned about premature aging and skin damage
  • Anyone seeking extra care and rejuvenation against sun-induced damage

3) Tinted Sunscreen - SPF 30, PA+++

The Science: This tinted sunscreen is a blend of sun protection and skincare benefits. Moringa, packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, complements the SPF 30 and PA+++ ratings to shield against UVA and UVB rays while providing an even-toned, radiant finish.

How It Works: The tint not only offers a sheer coverage but also contains Moringa, which helps combat free radicals caused by sun exposure, pollution and other environmental stressors. It's a multifunctional product, offering both protection and a touch of complexion-enhancing coverage.

  • Perfect for:
  • Those in search of sun protection with a tint for a radiant finish
  • Individuals looking for sheer coverage and antioxidant benefits for a perfect makeup base
  • Anyone wanting to combat free radicals while achieving an even-toned complexion

4) Tinted Sunscreen Mousse - Zinc Oxide, Vitamin E, Titanium Dioxide

The Science: This innovative mousse formulation combines the physical barrier of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide with the nourishing properties of Vitamin E. The mousse texture ensures easy application and seamless coverage.

How It Works: The mousse's unique texture allows for effortless spreading, ensuring thorough coverage. Vitamin E, known for its moisturizing and antioxidant properties, partners with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to shield and nourish your skin simultaneously.

  • Suitable for:
  • Those preferring a lightweight, mousse-textured sunscreen for no makeup or a clean girl look 
  • Individuals desiring seamless coverage with added nourishment
  • Anyone seeking easy application and moisturizing benefits
