Ultra Micronised Titanium Dioxide

  • Provides a broad spectrum for UVA and UVB protection by blocking and scattering light
  • Smaller particles keep skin looking translucent and clear
  • The photo-stable formula won’t degrade or oxidise due to prolonged sun exposure so SPF protection lasts longer
  • Suitable for sensitive skin

Bluelite Protect®

UV absorption spectrum of commonly used UV-filters.

  • Absorbs blue light radiation from electronic devices
  • Prevents blue light from weakening the epidermis, causing hyperpigmentation and accelerating ageing

UV Protection Performance

Thermus Thermophilus Ferment

  • This state-of-the-art, biotechnologically-derived ferment protects your skin from both UV and infrared radiation, which are two of the most integral causes of skin ageing and pigmentation
  • Infrared radiation actually makes up more than 50% of solar radiation and penetrates deep into skin where it induces skin stress and increases the production of Reactive Oxygen Species(ROS), a type of free radicals that cause significant damage to the skin structure
  • Thermus Thermophilus is “intelligent” because the higher the temperature, the harder it works to effectively cushion your skin against the damaging effects of both infrared and UV rays

White Horehound Extract

  • This edible herbal plant is native to temperate regions in Europe and the US and is highly prized for its resilient and anti-inflammatory properties
  • Removes and neutralises toxins and pollutants from skin
  • Strengthens the skin barrier so that skin can withstand environmental aggression
  • Has natural soothing properties to keep skin feeling comfortable all day

Peach Flower Extract

  • Rich in flavonoids such as rutin, quercetin, naringenin and chlorogenic acid
  • Helps to detoxify skin cells and prevent the accumulation of environmental pollutants in skin

Bioactive Fresh Water Algae

  • Our freshwater algae bioactives supply skin with an abundant amount of amino acids, vitamins and minerals. These are all building blocks for collagen synthesis and energy production that help skin to stay youthful, healthy and supple

Yes you may. Just allow 10 to 15 minutes for Protective Hydrator to settle onto your skin before applying make-up.
No. Protective Hydrator is a light-weight water-based sunscreen designed for daily wear. For heavy sports and swimming, you should use a water-proof sunscreen.

Yes, you need to apply Protective Hydrator to protect your skin against the damaging effects of UV rays which are present also in places where there is artificial lighting and where the sunlight streams in through glass windows.

Also, Protective Hydrator shields your skin from the damaging effects of blue light emitted from computer screens and mobile phones.

We hesitate to call Protective Hydrator a sunscreen as it is so much more than a sunscreen. It is all-round day cream that approaches daytime skin protection in a holistic way without weighing down the skin with oils or silicones like most sunscreen.

It feels lightweight and comfortable on the skin even in hot, humid weather. At the same time, it protects your skin from UV rays, blue light, infra-red, pollutants and a host of day-time free radical while keeping it hydrated and healthy.
