Product Details

Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 is a weightless fluid that combines 100% mineral filters with translucent color spheres for effective broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection and an even, radiant finish. This high protection zinc oxide sunscreen also contains artemia salina, a plankton extract known to increase skin’s resistance to UV- and heat-induced stress.

  • Sheer, tinted sunscreen adapts to most skin tones without a white cast
  • 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

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 5 out of 5 by from the BEST sunscreen, EVER I’ve been using this product since 2 years after being recommended me by a dermatologist, when I complained about the difficulty of finding a good mineral sunscreen that doesn’t look like corpse paint. I have extremely sensitive skin and also melasma, I don’t know what I would do without this product. It’s never irritated my skin, doesn’t contain any funky ingredients (hormone system dystruptors, alcohol, fragrance or photosensitizing essential oils), does even out the skin tone, has a great texture, moisturizes and blends well, I got so many compliments and questions about this product. So please don’t ever discontinue or change the formula!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome coverage I have been using Physical Fusion UV Defense w/tint for a few years now. I do not have to use foundation anymore because of this product. It last for a long time and I use it every day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’m in! I finally got around to trying this and I see the hype. It’s the last step of my skincare (Goop cleanser, then CE Ferulic, B5 hydrating gel, AGE interrupter, then SPF). The color and texture is surprising upon first using it. But it applies nicely and doesn’t feel at all oily. I did not notice any change to my skin color from using it which is saying a lot since I’m pretty pale. I will continue to buy this!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I agree about it being very watery even after you shake it rigorously and I found it hard to put on because of this. I am disappointed because I love the idea of it being tinted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely tint and supreme protection I have been usung this as my sunscreen for my face for 8 years. I have found it to be a reliable product that works well in protecting my skin against the sun, and the tint is so complimentary to my skin tone. I seldom wear foundation, just the tinted sunscreen. It also smooths in easily for application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I've been using Physical Fusion for several years now. It's the only sunscreen I use on my face (other than the few times here or there when I spray an overall sunscreen on my body/face for added security). It's lightweight and I love that it has just enough of a tint that I don't feel like I have to wear foundation. The only thing I need to be careful of is when I apply loose powder for a matte finish. I sometimes find that the sunscreen clumps a little after I've applied powder, but I still absolutely love this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tinted sunscreen I love the light coverage with the added bonus of sunscreen for protection. It’s perfect by itself on casual days & I use less foundation when I want extra coverage. The only minor complaint that I have is that it comes out of the bottle quickly due to its thin consistency.
