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 5 out of 5 by from Great Sunscreen This sunscreen is unique and a great product. It works very well with makeup. In addition, this sunscreen has not caused me to break out in anyway. I suffer from hives and eczema and have to evaluate every single ingredient in all products. I love this sunscreen.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Leaves a white cast on darker skin This product is not for people with brown skin color as it leaves a white cast. I received this product as a sample, and wore it out a few times in different sun environments, and it does a great job of providing protection. I have combination skin and the matte texture clung to the dry areas but looked great in my oily areas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light weight sunscreen!!!! This is the best sunscreen for face I have ever used. Some sunscreens for face are thick and sticky. But this one is Lightweight yet great coverage and protection. Love it. Will use this always.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff is amazing and totally worth it I love this stuff and will never use anything else. I spent a day at the lake and didn't reapply once and didn't burn (I used drug store sunscreen on the rest of my body and reapplied twice and I burned terribly). I mix this with Arbonne restorative cream every morning before I put on my make up and I love it. It's light under makeup, no greasy, and offers great protection. Highly recommended!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Texture! I only received this recently but I already LOVE IT! If feels like silk on your skin and makes a nice base for foundation but looks good by itself!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I recieved a sample sized tube of this with a Skinceuticals order that I made, and I really like it. It's higher SPF than any other facial sunscreen I've tried, and that's a huge plus. I have oily skin, and it has a sheer finish that doesn't make me shiny. It's got a little bit of color to it, but it blends right in and doesn't make my skin look any lighter or darker than it naturally is. I took a pic with some of the product on my hand so you can see the color. It doesn't leave a white cast like a lot of other face sunscreens do, you can't even tell you're wearing anything. The only thing that I wasn't very happy about was after the first time I used it I got two little blemishes. I'm not sure if it was from that or from something else, though. It's a little bit spendy, but I feel that it's worth the price for the higher SPF and the other beneficial ingredients in it. I recommend this and will likely repurchase after my sample tube is gone. It's really thin, so a tiny bit goes a long way and this tiny tube will probably last me a couple of months.
