A superior quality oil-free sunblock designed for all skin types, including children over 6 months of age. Solar Shade™ combines micronized titanium dioxide with silicone that is easy to apply and transparent after application. A protective film is created utilizing silicone, an occlusive agent, that stays on the surface of the skin preventing irritation. There are only three ingredients that are approved by the FDA that protect skin from UVA radiation and titanium dioxide is the most effective one. Most sunscreens only protect against UVB radiation and have less than 30 SPF. Solar Shade protects against both UVA and UVB radiation and gives 50% more protection than 30 SPF. Solar Shade qualifies as a physical block because it reflects UV energy rather than absorbing it. (Click here for our UVA & UVB assay). Doctors recommend the daily use of a sunblock with an SPF of 15+ (or higher) to defend against the harmful effects of the sun which can cause sunburn, premature aging & skin cancer. Solar Shade provides 45 times your natural protection against the damaging UVA/UVB rays. Can be safely used immediately after microdermabrasion, non-ablative lasers and high strength glycolics. Excellent for Rosacea and patients on Accutane®.
