Suntegrity Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen & Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30
Jul 24, 2012 by Harshleen
A non-greasy, chemical-free face sunscreen that offers Broad Spectrum Protection against damaging UVA & UVB rays. Infused with youth promoting antioxidants and astaxanthin, this 3 in 1 product functions as a face moisturizer, sunscreen and make-up primer all in one. Loaded with super-moisturizing ingredients—like hyaluronic acid (which holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water!) jojoba, and cucumber extract—it also packs aloe vera, which rejuvenates dry and dull skin and promotes the production of new cells and collagen. Large doses of uncoated, non-nano zinc-oxide protect the skin while providing anti-inflammatory properties that help with rosacea, acne, and melasma.
Carefully made for all skin types, it is: Free of: Parabens, Phthalates, Propylene Glycol, Mineral Oils, Synthetic Dyes, Sulfates, Paba, Titanium Dioxide, Nano-Particles and Chemical UV Absorbers. Cruelty Free (PETA & Leaping Bunny Cert.)

How to use it:
-If you have dry skin, apply after a serum or moisturizer. If you have normal to oily skin, this can double as your moisturizer.
-Place a large pea-sized amount in your hand, dot around your face and then blend in completely. Then do the same for your neck.
Packed with a whopping 20% dose of UV-reflecting zinc oxide, this mineral sunscreen ensures a solid broad-spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays. Despite its slightly thick texture, it does not have a heavy or tacky feel going on skin nor does it clog pores. The product starts out white but then as you rub it in, it blends in nicely and quickly (in about a minute) without leaving behind a chalky white residue on your skin. It doesn’t have a greasy/shiny finish (that I have noticed with a lot of physical SPF moisturizers) and provides a smooth, non-sticky base for makeup application so your foundation glides on easily over this product.
Free of chemicals, the formula is loaded not only with potent antioxidants like Astaxanthin, Green tea and Pomegranate oil to fight sun damage but also nourishing oils and extracts from jojoba, sunflower to keep skin well-hydrated. It’s also doesn’t irritate the sensitive skin all around the eyes so you won’t need a separate eye cream with SPF for daytime. There’s a light citrus scent that’s noticeable only while applying the product.
Suntegrity Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen & Primer SPF 30 has also been rated as the safest sunscreen on the market by the EWG/Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database. It has received a #1 Rating for “Best Moisturizer with SPF” in the EWG’s 2012 Sunscreen Guide. I’m happy to have found this healthy sunscreen just in time for summer! It’s perfect for everyday use.
