Explainer On Our 3 Sunscreens: What They Are And How To Pick The Right One For You

On our mission to create a simple, joyful, and effective skincare regime, we knew that we’d have to pay special attention to one of the essential steps: using sun protection. We also understood that one sunscreen won’t work on every skin type. That’s why our team of experts created three sunscreens with unique formulations and textures to suit your specific needs. Some key features your sunscreen should have irrespective of the type: a broad spectrum formulation (that protects against UVA/UVB rays), that is reef-safe (free from oxybenzone, avobenzone, octocrylene, and octinoxate), spreads uniformly on the skin and no white cast.

 

Still confused? We’ve broken it down for you! Discover details about our three sunscreens and find the one that’s right for you.

Patchouli Glow Sunscreen Drops

The Patchouli Glow Sunscreen Drops

 

Patchouli Glow SPF 40 PA+++ sunscreen drops is a nourishing, lightweight, oil-based formulation enriched with the goodness of patchouli and ceramides. The non-greasy sunscreen oil drops are replete with a protective shield of patchouli leaf extract and ceramides to nourish and enrich your skin. The lightweight formulation is absorbed into your skin seamlessly without leaving a white cast.

Loaded with antioxidants that fight off free radicals caused by the sun, it protects you from UVA and UVB radiations. Patchouli is revered for its regenerative abilities which help improve skin texture and appearance. The extract has calming properties that help soothe skin irritated due to sun exposure or environmental stressors. Meanwhile, ceramides help retain hydration, keeping the skin soft, supple, and glowing.

Who should use it?

If your skin needs extra nourishment, radiance, moisture, along with sun protection, Patchouli Glow is the right pick for you. Mature skin can benefit from nourishing oils that work similarly to natural sebum and promote a youthful appearance. In cold or harsh climates, oil-based sunscreen can create a protective barrier from extreme weather conditions and help retain moisture.

Turmeric Shield Sunscreen Serum

Turmeric Shield Sunscreen Serum

 

Turmeric Shield SPF 40 PA+++ is a lightweight sunscreen serum that harnesses the healing prowess of turmeric and moisture-retaining force of ceramides. With its fast-absorbing, no-white-cast finish, it stands strong between your skin and harsh UVA and UVB rays. As mineral-based sunscreens with zinc oxide like Turmeric Shield effectively protect your skin from the harmful effects of the UVA and UVB rays. They are a naturally occurring mineral that is safe to use. The sunscreen serum is also replete with multiple other mineral and chemical UV filters in optimum amount to prevent UVA and UVB rays from harming your skin. Clinical tests have shown that this serum grants not only sun protection, but also a nourished, hydrated, and radiant finish to your skin.

 

A few of the ingredients in Turmeric Shield SPF 40 PA+++ are also known to defend against the impact of blue light. This lightweight serum packs a punch with the healing properties of turmeric and ceramides. Turmeric is known for its antioxidant and antimicrobial properties that can help protect the skin.

Who should use it?

Turmeric Shield’s lightweight and non-greasy texture suits those with skin that feels normal, as it does not add any heaviness or exacerbate oiliness. The easy layering capability of the serum-based sunscreen makes it an ideal choice for individuals with a multi-step skincare routine, and it seamlessly integrates with other products. It also helps prepare the skin for makeup, making it ideal for daily wear.

 

For active individuals or those living in warmer climates, the lightweight formula ensures comfortable application during physical activities. Overall, the serum-based sunscreen combines functionality, comfort, and compatibility with various skin types and preferences along with added hydration benefits. 

Licorice Beam Sunscreen Gel

 

Licorice Beam Sunscreen Gel

 

Licorice Beam SPF 40 PA+++ is a clear sunscreen that combines licorice and ceramides in its formulations. The lightweight gel sunscreen renders a matte finish while also revealing glowing skin. Experience the natural radiance that emerges with licorice root extract as a key ingredient. Meanwhile, ceramides help to seal in the moisture content and render a hydrating glow.

 

The formulation showcases its exceptional ability of licorice extract that is known to brighten the skin by reducing melanin production heightened by exposure to the sun (hyperpigmentation). Moreover, licorice root extract is known to have potent antioxidant properties that work wonders in soothing the skin and repairing the damage caused by environmental stressors and harmful UVA and UVB rays. It is known to prevent premature ageing of the skin caused by free radicals.

Who should use it?

Licorice Beam sunscreen gel is a versatile option for those with skin that feels oily, as the lightweight and non-greasy texture helps prevent shine. Additionally, the gel-based sunscreen works effectively for combination skin, providing sun protection (UVA & UVB) without increasing oiliness. In hot and humid climates, the sunscreen offers a matte feel, ensuring comfort and a lightweight, non-sticky sensation throughout the day. Moreover, the gel-based sunscreen with its reef-safe ingredient list, is fit for those with sensitive skin.
