Solar Defender SPF 30 is a revolutionary sunscreen formula that is both gentle and extremely effective at protecting skin from aging UVA and burning UVB rays. This greaseless base leaves skin's protective barrier intact, so your skin's complexion stays calm and moist all day.
Solar Defender goes on sheer, is invisible in seconds. Any skin type will find it easy to wear throughout the day, due to the blend of UV absorbing and reflecting UVB sunscreens. This formula helps lessen damage caused by direct sunlight.

Solar Defender doesn't clog pores or feel sticky or stain.

Home Care: Apply Solar Defender SPF 30 liberally to face and body at least ten minutes before sun exposure or two minutes before applying makeup. Re-apply after swimming or excessive perspiration! As part of an effective age-fighting program, apply every morning throughout the year. Because Solar Defender SPF 30 is a blend of UV absorbing and reflecting sunscreens, it may be applied over or under moisturizer.

More information on Sunscreens:
SPF indicates the amount of time it takes to turn slightly red 24 hours after sun exposure - not how much sun protection is delivered. The FDA has defined SPF as the amount of time it takes to produce minimal redness (erythema) in the skin via UVB exposure. This is called the Minimal Erythemal Dose (MED), and it's achieved when the skin attains the amount of UVB required to produce redness, more commonly known as sunburn.
SPF only applies to UVB light not the burning ray.
Wearing a high SPF provides a false sense of security. Three reasons: 1) The SPF rating only applies to UVB protection, not the amount of UVA protection delivered, which may be low or non-existant. UVA contributes more to aging than UVB and has been found to cause a high percentage of melanomas. 2) Most people don't apply enough sunscreen to get the SPF stated on the bottle. 3) Since even the highest SPF sunscreens are depleted as they lower UV energy rays, sunscreen must be reapplied every two hours to achieve the stated SPF.
There is no such thing as sunblock. As a professional, you should never use the term- sunblock. Never, ever . . . ever! Why, you might ask, when everyone else in the industry does? Because my clients depend on me for the truth, which is: No sunscreen completely blocks UV rays.
SPF 15 protects against 93 percent of UV rays, SPF 30 protects against 97 percent, SPF 50 wards off 98 percent, SPF 98 about 99 percent and these percentages only apply if you rub on the same amount of sunscreen that was used in the test to determine SPF. So a very high SPF gives a false sense of security.
