This non-greasy formula provides long-lasting sun protection by combining both chemical and physical UVA/UVB filters. Sheer SPF 45 contains Zinc Oxide with Octocrylene, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate (Octinoxate) and Ethylhexyl Salicylate to defend the skin from harmful UV radiation.
Is higher SPF sunscreen better?
Studies show that the higher the SPF value, the more protection you’re getting from your sunscreen. Another factor is the ingredients used. The most effective sun protection products use both physical blockers that deflect the sun’s damaging radiation and chemical agents that absorb it. Look for a minimum of SPF 30 on the label.
Apply liberally to face, neck and chest 15 minutes before sun exposure. If you’re planning to be outdoors, reapply at least every 2 hours or as needed, particularly after towel drying, perspiring or bathing. Consult with your doctor before using on children less than 6 months of age. Use a water resistant sunscreen before swimming.
