If you grew up being used to get plenty of sun exposure without protection, and probably even la-thered on sun tanning lotions or laid in sun tanning beds, it can be a real challenge to even begin to comprehend how the sun can cause real and lifelong detrimental effects to your health.

Then, even if you do get sunscreen protection, another consideration is the sunscreen ingredients your product carries. Chemical sunscreens which are made to absorb UV rays and turn these into less harmful states like heat, have been found to be highly toxic, and very likely cause more harm than good.

Product Description, Manufacturer’s Information and Price Details

SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50

Physical sunscreens, like the SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50, the main active ingredient is zinc oxide, are much better alternatives. It is a broad spectrum sunscreen which means it can protect your skin from both the deep-penetrative UVA rays and the surface burning UVB rays as well.

This product contains a well-thought out formulation that fits every skin color and skin type. It is made with Z-Cote, a Zinc Oxide based proprietary ingredient that is able to provide broad spectrum physical sunscreen protection. In addition, this product leaves your skin with a flattering glow, and is a good primer for makeup.

Each 1.7 fl. oz. bottle of SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 sells for $34.

Ingredients

This product is made with Z-Cote (Zinc Oxide, 0.5%) as its active sunscreen ingredient which is able to block out both UVA and UVB rays. In addition, it also contains the active sunscreen component, Titanium Dioxide (0.6%).

SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 ismade with the following full list of ingredients: titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, water, dimethicone, isododecane, c12-15 alkyl benzoate, undecane, triethylhexanoin, isohexadecane, nylon-12, caprylylmethicone, butyloctyl salicylate, phenethyl benzoate, styrene/acrylates copolymer, silica, tridecane, dicaprylyl carbonate, dicaprylyl ether, talc, dimethicone/peg-10/15 crosspolymer, aluminum stearate, pentylene glycol, peg-9 polydimethylsiloxyethyldimethicone, alumina, polyhydroxystearic acid, phenoxyethanol, magnesium sulfate, caprylyl glycol, iron oxides, peg-8 laurate, disteardimoniumhectorite, triethoxycaprylylsilane, tocopherol, propylene carbonate, artemia extract, benzoic acid, c9-15 fluoroalcohol phosphate, peg-9

Directions

Apply SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 at least 15 minutes before sun exposure.

Pros

This product does not contain chemical filters that can be toxic to your skin and overall health but, is formulated just as potently to provide broad spectrum sun protection for your skin. This product is also surprisingly, pleasantly moderately priced so that you can keep reapplying it generously.

Cons

There are no product drawbacks noted, except for the presence of PEGs. PEGs can easily combine with other carcinogenic substances that it can deliver rather effectively inside your body.

Conclusion

When it comes to skincare, not even sunscreens can be taken with a one-size-fits-all strategy. What works for your sister may not work as good for you. Sometimes it takes for you to try one to know one.
