If you want your sun protection to be free of parabens, fragrances, oil, dyes, gluten, chemical sunscreens and animal products, then EltaMD UV Pure was designed with you in mind.
EltaMD Pure sunscreen contains a whopping 10% of Zinc Oxide, the mineral sunscreen that protects against the broadest portion of the UV spectrum. You may recall an 80’s phenomenon called Zinka – the playfully colored schmears of sunscreen often sported by surfers and lifeguards. The whimsical variety of pigments was added to this product because Zinc Oxide is naturally thick and white, and not something that most people what to apply to their skin. Over time, companies like EltaMD have developed more and more elegant forms of Zinc Oxide that feel less goopy, and have been micronized to help it absorb into skin better resulting in a product that doesn’t leave you looking like a ghost. EltaMD Pure is formulated with Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide as their photo-stable active ingredients and not much else. That makes it perfect for sensitive skin, children, and anyone who strives to leave a clean lifestyle.
Every one of the EltaMD sunscreens (and there are dozens) are designed to provide the most comprehensive sun protection available. That’s why EltaMD is the # 1 dermatologist-recommended sunscreen brand on the market. UV Pure is a protective powerhouse that utilizes only mineral-based UV blockers that work as a sunscreen agent by reflecting and scattering UVA and UVB rays before they even breach the skin barrier. And not only does Pure defends your skin from sunburn, developing skin cancers, and premature aging by creating a physical barrier between the sun and your skin, but it also utilizes a well-known supplement to enhance the health of your skin. Vitamin C ester serves to magnify the protective qualities of this awesome product. Vitamin C is a well-studied anti-oxidant that helps control the development of free-radicals which are a main cause of cellular breakdown in the skin. And that’s all folks, UV Pure keeps it plain and simple.
