  • Boosts radiance for a more even, luminous complexion
  • Helps boost skin’s natural defenses to environmental stress
  • Paraben-free and fragrance-free; non-comedogenic
  • Ideal for all skin types, even very sensitive skin

How To Use

Shake well before use. Apply sunscreen liberally to the face, neck, and chest 15 minutes before sun exposure and before applying makeup. Reapply sunscreen after 40 minutes of swimming, sweating, immediately after towel drying, and at least every two hours. For children under six months of age, consult a physician before use.

Sun Protection Measures: Spending time in the sun increases your risk of skin cancer and early skin aging. To decrease this risk, regularly use a sunscreen with a Broad-Spectrum SPF value of 15 or higher and other sun protection measures including:
- Limit time in the sun, from 10 am - 2 pm
- Wear long-sleeved shirts, pants, hats, and sunglasses
- For children under six months of age, consult a physician before use

  • Science & Proof

  • Science

    This breathable, tinted sunscreen is formulated with transparent titanium oxide and zinc oxide (Z-Cote®), the only mineral UV filter shown to protect against the full UVA/UVB spectrum along with translucent color spheres and artemia salina to impart powerful UV protection with a natural radiance. A “shake then apply” dispersal technology helps ensure even distribution of sunscreen ingredients.

Key Ingredients

  • 5% Zinc oxide (Z-Cote®)
  • 6% Titanium dioxide
  • Artemia salina
  • Translucent color spheres

This microfine zinc oxide is a mineral filter that reflects sun rays to provide broad spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays. The particle size and distribution characteristics spread evenly and provide a non-whitening effect on skin.

Physician Insight

Physician image

I love Physical Fusion because it is so easy to apply and does not clog up the skin or feel and look too heavy. The tint also gives it a nice smoothing effect on the skin. It is so easy to apply, and so effective in protecting the skin from sun damage, that I also use it daily on my three children.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light tint, Easy to apply This has got a very light tint to it, which is very important for my super pale skin. It applies easily, but you definitely need to shake it up good before you try to dole out the foundation. I would recommend using a coaster or counter to drip the foundation onto and then I use my fingers to apply to my face and brush out the foundation from there, that way I feel like I'm losing less of the product to my brush bristles. You can add more to get more coverage, but I feel like the tint is very thin, so it's definitely not going to give you a full coverage foundation look if that's what you are going for. For me, it works perfectly for those days that I'm just going out to do errands, working out in the yard, or traveling to the beach for some relaxation. I don't typically wear this everyday, but for someone with flawless skin (unlike me, with my acne prone face) it would be perfect for everyday wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best sunblock ever! I just spent 3 days full days in the sun at Jazz Fest and returned home without a sunburn! I used this product in the morning and reapplied during the day for perfect sun protection. It’s light on your skin and no perfumes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight sunscreen! I’ve been using this sunscreen for years and I really love it. I use this after I apply CE Ferulic. Don’t leave home without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great line of products! I started using SkinCeuticals several years ago, when recommended by a 5 star spa I was staying at, at the time. I started with the C E Ferulic, and the Antioxidant lip repair. Now, I am using most of the product line! I especially like Glycolic 10 Renew Overnight and the Physical Fusion UV Defense! Everything in this product line is excellent, and trust me, I've tried lots of products! Few people believe me when i tell them my age :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Runny I bought this several months ago and am extremely dissapointed, it is really runny and when it dries my face is left shiny and feeling tacky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tinted and light I didn't realize it was tinted until I went to use it the first time. I was concerned at first but soon realized I loved that it was tinted.
