Miessence Reflect SPF 15 100g
Unlike mainstream sunscreens, this natural product does not contain the free-radical-forming, DNA-damaging and antioxidant-blocking synthetic chemicals octyl-methoxycinnamate, titanium dioxide, oxybenzone, PABA and cinoxate.
Water-resistant, titanium dioxide-free nourishing balm reflects damaging ultraviolet radiation and uses zinc oxide for broad protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays.
Low PUFA: Organic shea butter and olive oil keep the skin supple, and along with potent antioxidants vitamin E and rosemary extract protect the skin from premature ageing and help prevent damage caused by the elements.
Apply generously to skin surfaces exposed to sunlight 20 minutes before exposure.
Re-apply every two hours.
Due to Australian regulations for SPF ratings, Miessence would need to
have this product manufactured in a licensed SPF facility (instead of their own certified organic manufacturing plant) to claim an SPF higher than 15. The product was submitted to Dermatest for independent testing and was rated as SPF 29.5.
SPF refers mainly to the amount of UVB protection a sunscreen offers. There’s a large jump between an SPF of 2, which protects against 50% of UVB rays, and 15, but after that the increments are small: SPF 15 blocks 93% of UVB radiation, while SPF 30 blocks nearly 97%
