  • Water resistant for up to 40 minutes
  • 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

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 3 out of 5 by from Good SPF- UV Coverage I was excited about purchasing this product. I do love the great coverage it has for you, but I hate the smell and texture it leaves on your face. Good SPF-IV coverage though!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Probably best for very fair complexions only I am a huge fan of Skinceuticals generally, but I won't be repurchasing this. 2 stars for how lightweight and smooth it is, plus high SPF... but that's it because as I think we all know there is no such thing as "universal tint" that actually works for most skintones. My esthetician (who is blonde with light skin) recommended this to me and said i MUST have it. I am light-olive skinned... and this gave my skin a very sickly yellowish/ gray cast minutes after application. The only time my skin has ever been that color before was after surgery, when I was detoxing from anesthesia. So I can't imagine how bad this would look on skintones even darker than mine. Shame. But pass.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great ingredients This is the 3rd bottle I've bought. I love it, it's light, has the ingredients I need and doesn't make me breakout. The only thing is that the top from where the sunscreen comes out on this bottle got stuck (super weird) so I had to cut it a little to be able to get the sunscreen out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from the expiration date is only 9 months I bought this product for myself and my friends on Nov 24, 2020. But the expiration date is Aug/2021, only 9 months!!!!???? This is is the shortest expiration date I have ever seen. It has been more than 2 months since I bought them and were not returnable for now. I have been trusted the SkinCeuticals so much. Very disappointed this time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Gets pilly I got a sample of this sunscreen. Unfortunately, no matter what I put under it, i find the sunscreen gets "pilly" and balls up as i rub it in. I have to brush off the build up for a few minutes before It is fully rubbed in. Will not be purchasing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product but poor packaging I was impressed with this when I purchased my first bottle and so I decided to stick to it and bought a second one after a few months; however the second bottle keeps pouring out itself and wasting the product! I kept it at the recommended temp but for whatever reason it just comes out spilling everywhere! The first one didn’t pour out as much but disappointed with wasting my money this time!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It has so much potential... When I first put this on, it looks gorgeous. The problem? About twenty minutes later, I look chalky and any dry patches look a million times worse! This is AFTER I drench my face in CeraVe's moisturizing cream and pure squalene oil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covers nicely My preferred sunscreen. Doesn’t leave my face feeling greasy and spreads easily without pulling at my skin. Works to keep my face free of sun damage.
