TIME DEFIANCE UV Defense SPF 50 from Amway also offers another advantage: Its ultra-light formula absorbs instantly, which means no ashy look regardless of skin tone.
"Amway scientists are committed to creating products that fulfill the needs of women of every color. TIME DEFIANCE UV Defense SPF 50 responds to the need we've heard from consumers for a sunscreen that looks and feels as good on darker skin as it is for lighter skin types," says Jori Hartwig, Vice President of Marketing for Amway North America.
"There is a common misconception that darker-skinned individuals are not at risk of sunburn or skin cancer. Although those with dark skin won't get sunburned as quickly, they can still burn and are still susceptible to UV-induced damage such as wrinkles, age spots, uneven pigmentation, and skin cancer," cautions Rhonda Solberg, a scientist behind TIME DEFIANCE UV Defense SPF 50.
In the formula of the Balanced Brightening Complex, Rhonda highlights the presence of white tea extract, chamomile extract, and bitter orange peel extract. TIME DEFIANCE UV Defense SPF 50 also contains moisturizing ingredients and is water-resistant. It can be purchased through an Amway Independent Business Owner or by visiting Amway.com/artistry.
