NEW YORK, May 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- SkinCeuticals, a leader in advanced skincare technology, announces the launch of Light Moisture UV Defense SPF 50. This new high SPF, broad-spectrum oil-free sunscreen for face and body is suitable for all skin types, absorbs quickly without a white cast or residue and thoroughly moisturizes as it protects.
According to Dr. Brian A. Stolley, one of the main challenges physicians face when recommending sunscreen to patients is ensuring that he or she actually uses the sunscreen to protect against UVA/UVB rays after leaving the office. By launching a new sunscreen that is oil-free, fragrance-free, paraben-free and non-comedogenic, SkinCeuticals introduces a simple, easy-to-use solution for everyday sun protection.
"This universal SPF is perfect for all of my patients – its weightless formula thoroughly moisturizes as it protects and leaves skin comfortable," says Dr. Stolley. "While daily sunscreen usage is necessary to protect the skin from UV-induced aging and discoloration, many patients claim that sunscreen formulas feel greasy and are difficult to rub in. This new SPF is a game changer!"
Anyone can get skin cancer, regardless of age, gender or race. It is estimated that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime.¹˒² Light Moisture UV Defense SPF 50 provides a universal solution. For use on both the face and body, its formula is non-whitening and non-transferring, leaving skin feeling smooth and clean.
Performing beyond a standard sunscreen, Light Moisture UV Defense SPF 50 moisturizes as it protects and boasts a high concentration of key ingredients:
- 3% Avobenzone, an oil-soluble, organic compound, absorbs skin-aging UVA rays
- 10% Homosalate is a non-sensitizing sunscreen agent and an effective protection against UVB rays
- 5% Octisalate protects against burning UVB rays
- 7% Octocrylene protects skin from the full spectrum of burning UVB and aging UVA rays and possesses emollient properties
- Glycerin acts as a powerful humectant that possesses water-binding properties to deliver intense hydration
"Through our wide network of partner physicians, we have seen an increased demand for a universal, everyday sunscreen," said Christina Fair, General Manager of SkinCeuticals. "We sought to deliver a sunscreen that fits seamlessly into any lifestyle. We are thrilled to be able to offer Light Moisture UV Defense SPF 50 as an effective solution to protect against sun damage – and ultimately protect the investment of in-office treatments and at-home skincare regimens – whether you're walking to work or going on a beach vacation."
As part of an at-home regimen, Light Moisture UV Defense SPF 50 can be paired with an antioxidant and other moisturizers in the SkinCeuticals corrective portfolio to tackle multiple anti-aging concerns.
