  • 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 All day, every day. My dermatologist recommended this product to me and a few days later, my aesthetician recommended the same. Since I’m in my garden most sunny days and occasionally get more sun than I intend to, I’ve tried to be hyper-vigilant about protection. This sunscreen is perfect for me...even with my “more than dewy” t-zone. It’s never greasy, evens my skin tone and is a terrific base for foundation when I want more coverage. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best sunscreen ever made! I’ve tried it all. Honestly my skin is so sensitive to the sun and this product helps immensely. Absorbs quickly, toned down my redness and you can layer with constant reapplication and not feel greasy or breakout. Can’t live without this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect coverage! I bought this after having surgery to remove a cancerous lesion on my face. I love the light-weight coverage this lotion provides. When I’m exercising it doesn’t feel too heavy. I can also apply my foundation over it without feel like I’m wearing too many layers. I am now a faithful wearer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! This product is a must have. It is just beyond perfect, and would never buy a different SPF. I have Rosacea and it helps a lot neutralizing my redness. It gives you the perfect “no makeup” look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best sunscreen ever I love this sunscreen and use it as my foundation base. It gives just a bit of coverage without making wrinkles look more noticeable. If your goal is to never leave the house without sunscreen on your face for protection this is the product for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this sunscreen! I’ve been using this sunscreen for almost 10 years on my face everyday rain or shine. It doesn’t feel thick and it doesn’t have that typical sunscreen smell. It lasts all day - I don’t even have to reapply when I’m at the beach. I highly recommend it.
