Last summer, she continued a journey of discovery of new sunscreens , just to get hot and bothered by some horrible and burned by the high price and mediocre chemical concoctions. I managed to find some worthy test and since I added two of Soleil Toujours to our shop and soon we will join Heliotop . Buenos discoveries, but it is clearly time for another exploration for sunscreens with anti-aging benefits. I looked same department store brands current, as well as some independent and here are those who ultimately have rejected and I selected for testing.
Ole Henriksen Protect The Truth SPF50 vitamin C ($ 35)
Good name, but the disappointing formula . I want to receive this mark, but I always find the products fail to add up. This sunscreen is very poor, though. It is surprising, in this day and age, a brand that cares could be based solely on chemical sunscreens – Ole Henriksen and no less than five. There are some antiaging for formula, such as a good form of vitamin C, cell extract Thermus thermophilus grape (a marine bacteria) and algae additions. Most of the rest is a mixture of silicones and copolymers, but the most unpleasant part is all of those assets controversial sunscreen chemicals that can cause free radical damage.
Olay Regenerist Regenerating Lotion SPF 15 ($ 22.99)
Olay previous blows most drugstore brands with two anti-aging good quality assets and niacinamide Matrixyl. I am basing this on the list on the website of Drugstore.com as Olay seems to be incomplete. Unfortunately, there are parabens preservatives (a new study has linked to reproductive toxicity) and four active chemical sunscreens.
Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF47 ($ 14)
reviewed my old version of sunscreen Josie Maran few years ago and I like all. Strangely, I can not see what is enhanced with this new version. In any case, it seems to have taken a step back. The new version has STB Boost Skin “, a revolutionary combination of antioxidants, skin soothers, and moisturizers.” It is difficult to see how further argan oil and green tea is. The Granada (a good antioxidant) that was in the old version is gone. So has the apricot oil, which was the natural fragrance of the formula, only to be replaced by “perfume” unidentified chemical fragrance. The amount of silicone has increased. I do not think I will visit again.
Shiseido Wetforce ($ 40)
The idea behind this sunscreen is quite intelligent. Instead of trying to make the waterproof sunscreen, Shiseido scientists came up with a way to make contact with the water to improve the performance of the film sunscreen. Of course, that does not really explain why, but it has something to do with ions and minerals in the water. The formula has four botanical extracts, but the active chemical sunscreens, silicones, chemical fragrance and talk, send it to the reject pile.
selected for testing
Andalou Naturals BB Skin Perfecting Beauty Balm SPF 30 ($ 19.99)
one of our community members suggested it. I’m a little worried about whether the 20% would leave a white plaster. The plethora of botanical extracts including fruit stem cells, a complex of berries, melon and red team make it worth checking out.
cake Tarteguard 30 sunscreen ($ 32)
This started relatively recently and although definitely not for purists, there are some things worth and interesting about it. First it is a mineral sunscreen that, since it is made by a brand makeup, I bet you will be cosmetically acceptable. Unusually, has a stabilizing sunscreen is usually used with unstable chemicals assets. Interestingly, it is a very good “singlete- oxygen quencher” (for example powerful antioxidant), according to research . Also on the positive side are the apple stem cells, two forms of moisture retainers, algae, passion flower and honeysuckle. Less attractive are the harsh preservatives, irritants like propanediol and silicones.
ASDM Beverly Hills physical Tinted Facial SPF35 + Sunscreen ($ 25)
ASDM Beverly Hills is a brand that we have recently introduced to the truth shop aging after It is impressed by the powerful formulas and friendly prices to its budget. Older ASDM sunscreen watermelon extract, which is so rich in lycopene protects against sunburn. What’s more, it is not silk peptides, rosehip, rice bran and nothing I like.
Elena Rubin Carpe Diem SPF28 ($ 59)
This is another brand that is new to the truth in store for Aging and are eager to test the sunscreen. Mostly zinc oxide with moisturizing squalane and an interesting form of complex sugar from beets that promotes healthy bacteria on the skin. Although it is not made for purists, the ingredients are mostly benign including a natural antifungal tropolone call.
Relieve Sun-Lite ™ Organic Moisturizing Sunscreen ($ 29.99)
This sunscreen is good for what it has and what it does . Without titanium dioxide (although widely used in sunscreens minerals is controversial) and silicone. Besides zinc oxide, the key ingredient is aloe, known for its properties of sun protection and moisturizing capabilities. moisture retention phospholipids derived from sunflower seeds, plus there a special type of antioxidant pine extract.
Pratima Neem Rose Face Sunscreen SPF30 ($ 36)
Our community members got a call to this and, in fact, reviewed some years ago. Time back, I think. The formula strengthens its zinc oxide with the ingredients used in Ayurvedic medicine and essential oil of rose is an antioxidant and odor masking active sunscreen chalky.
According Skincare The perfect sunscreen SPF30 ($ 45)
Thus boldly named you just have to see if it is up. In view of this, it looks promising, with plenty of natural extracts, including antioxidant buckthorn and turmeric. Even no chalky residue is promised.
SPF30 Luzern La Defense ($ 50)
This was suggested by a member of the Lori community and this sunscreen zinc oxide has a lot of things their favor. Even some of the things that may seem unpleasant, such as caprylhydroxamic acid are, in fact, naturally occurring (in this case coconut). Plus there are plenty of botanical antioxidants licorice, green tea, seaweed extract and butterfly bush.
Let’s try as many of these as we can get in the coming weeks and in the meantime, feel free to make other suggestions or recommendations.
