Sunscreen Alternative Cream
Too much sun? Apply some Shade in a Bottle!
This lotion offers anti-oxidants to protect skin during sun exposure (think Vitamins C & E and Resveratrol). The peptide, Diaminopropionoyl Tripeptide-33 (Preventhelia), offers both sun protection and healing post-sun exposure by helping scavenge radical carbonyl species (thus helping prevent cellular damage during sun exposure) and repairing DNA (post-sun exposure).
The peptide Acetyl Tetrapeptide-40 (Telangyn) battles inflammation and combats redness. This peptide is great whether your redness is due to sun exposure or rosacea.
Shade in a Bottle may be used both day or night and is perfect for all skin types. Why is it suitable for all skin types?
- Well, meadowfoam seed oil is easily absorbed meaning it won't contribute to oiliness if your skin is already oily. Also, because it is easily absorbed, it helps plump dry skin.
- Sodium hyaluronate and panthenol (Provitamin B-5) help hydrate the skin and prevent trans epidermal water loss (TEWL). Both of these ingredients are water soluble, so no oil here.
- Hemp seed oil regulates sebum production (great for acne prone skin and oily skin). High in PUFA (polyunsaturated fatty acids), hemp seed oil is also phenomenal for dry skin.
- Cucumber and rose hydrosol help soothe the skin (great for sensitive skins of all types).
