clinical study
In-vitro tests show artemia salina has been proven to increase the skin's defense against UV and heat stress by inducing Heat Shock Protein 70 (HSP 70), which protects skin proteins including collagen from UV damage.
Formulated with reduced chemicals and 100% all mineral filters, this lightweight, paraben-free fluid offers broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection with an ultra-sheer texture that’s ideal for all skin types, even very sensitive and post-procedure skin.

Excellent for sensitive and oily skin I have extremely oily sensitive skin, which has made finding a facial sunscreen exceptionally difficult. I tried countless products before coming across Sheer Physical UV Defense, and I am happy to say that my search has finally ended. Sheer Physical UV Defense is lightweight, wears well under makeup, doesn't make my skin greasy, and doesn't cause breakouts. I have been using this sunscreen for over a year now and couldn't be happier. For reference, I am fair skinned and photosensitive. June 1, 2014
Horrible! Since non of my cosmetics contain any SPF and I've always heard how much damage the sun can do to a person's skin, I've been on the quest for an effective sunscreen with high SPF. That's when I stumbled across this page and read all the great reviews for this product. So, I decided to give this product a shot and bought it, on a whim. I put this product on, expecting it to be the miracle product everyone else claimed it to be and was utterly disappointed! After putting it on, it made my face extremely white and the product did NOT blend in to a sheer finish. It also brought out all the dry spots in my face! I had to end up washing my face, as it looked atrocious and I was getting ready to go out for the day. I'm guessing this product works well for those who have fair skin (since it received such great reviews) but for others, like me, who have olive skin tones, I would NOT recommend this product! This type of product is not made for people with our skin tones, as it does not blend in and instead, leaves a very white and chalky residue. While you do have a full 30 days to ship the item back, be warned that you won't get back what you paid for in shipping fees. It also is quite tedious that you have to call them directly for a return authorization number, before sending back your order. They close at 5:30 CST, so if you're in a different time zone, like myself, you'll have to find a way to call them during your work day. May 6, 2013
Makes skin look very smooth Excellent sunscreen. protects well and is easy to reapply. Does not irritate my eyes at all, which most sunscreens do. Very beautiful finish for the face. August 17, 2012
