KIEHL'S Ultra Light Daily UV Defense Mineral Sunscreen
Many skincare experts agree that sunscreen is the number one measure of protecting skin from the damaging effects of the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. However, for those with sensitive or acne-prone skin, chemical sunscreen filters used in traditional sunscreens may irritate skin. This irritation leads to concerns far greater than an unexpected breakout or an uncomfortable feeling on the skin. Individuals with sensitivity to chemical sunscreens tend to avoid necessary sun protection leading to premature skin aging: wrinkles appearing up to 3 years earlier, and firmness diminished up to 10 years early. With sensitive skin affecting 66% of the population in the US, 77% in France; 61% in Japan and 52% in Brazil, and acne-prone skin affecting 67% in the US, 74% in France, 77% in Japan and 56% in China – a unique demand exists for daily sunscreens suitable for the specific skincare needs of those with sensitive or acne-prone skin. Kiehl’s expertise in sensitive skin and skin tolerance testing that exceeds the industry standard, Kiehl’s chemists developed a new, non-irritating, broad-spectrum lotion specifically formulated with sensitive and acne-prone skin in mind introducing Dermatologist Solutions™ Ultra Light Daily UV Defense Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 PA+++. This sheer, ultra-lightweight and lightly tinted lotion features a 100% mineral based filter to help defend sensitive and acne-prone skin from the sun’s harmful rays, without the irritation.
KIEHL'S Ultra Light Daily UV Defense Sunscreen
It is widely understood that sunscreens are critical to protecting skin from the damaging effects of the sun. In fact, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation, more than 90% of the visible changes commonly attributed to skin aging are caused by the sun. These damaging effects are from UVB as well as long and short UVA rays that are known to encourage premature skin aging. Inspired by this insight, Kiehl’s now offers a more advanced solution to sun protection introducing the new and improved Dermatologist SolutionsTM Ultra Light Daily UV Defense SPF 50 PA++++. This ultra-lightweight formula employs a unique blend of sunscreen filters that now extend protection beyond short UVA rays to provide enhanced protection against the equally harmful long UVA rays that are more abundant and penetrate deeper into the skin. Combined with the antioxidant power of Vitamin E, the formula helps protect against all three forms of skin damaging UV rays that reach the earth’s surface.
