EltaMD® UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46 sunscreen is a lightweight, silky cream that is available as tinted or untinted. This high-factor sunscreen offers good protection from UVA and UVB rays. It calms the skin and is suitable for skin that is prone to acne, hyperpigmentation, or rosacea.
EltaMD® UV Clear is a mineral sunscreen that contains 9.0% zinc oxide and 7.5% octinoxate to physically block UV light from penetrating the skin without leaving a white residue. Instead, the tinted formula gives your skin an even, healthy-looking glow.
EltaMD® UV Clear also contains the following beneficial ingredients:
- Vitamin B3 (niacinamide) – an anti-inflammatory that reduces redness and aids suppleness within the skin
- Hyaluronic acid – a humectant that attracts water from the environment and within the skin to ensure skin cells remain well-hydrated for softer skin
- Vitamin E (tocopheryl acetate) – an antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals to prevent visible signs of aging occurring
For best results, the sunscreen should be applied 15 minutes before sun exposure and then reapplied at least once every two hours. This broad-spectrum sunscreen can be worn with or without makeup.
