Arguably the most important step in an individual’s daily care regimen, broad spectrum sunscreen products are the number one defense the skin has against ultra violet (UV) rays. Thanks to the recent changes made by the Food and Drug Administration in regards to how sunscreen manufacturers label their products, consumers are able to make safer, healthier options when it comes to sun protection products.
Not all broad spectrum sunscreens are created equally, however.
The PCA SKIN® suite of sunscreens contains five unique formulations to fit any skin type or condition. Each broad spectrum sunscreen also contains advanced antioxidants, silybin and caffeine to provide additional protection against UV-induced free radical damage.
When paired with a PCA SKIN stem cell corrective like C-Quench® Antioxidant Serum, Rejuvenating Serum or Intensive Clarity Treatment™: 0.5% pure retinol night, superior antioxidant protection can lead the way to healthier, beautiful skin.
