What is it?

Sheer is here! SheerGlow™ is a lightweight SPF 30 moisturizer that provides 100% mineral sun protection to shield your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays that cause hyperpigmentation and early skin aging. Also neutralizes oxidative stress that causes uneven skin tone. It’s your daily dark spot defense!

Mineral sunscreens provide highly effective protection and tend to be less irritating than chemical sunscreens, making them especially good for sensitive, acne-prone skin and those who struggle with hyperpigmentation and melasma.

But mineral sunscreens aren’t designed for every shade of skin under the sun. Until now…

New SheerGlow™ features our SheerGenius™ Technology with Zinc Oxide to provide 100% mineral-active broad spectrum sun protection for all skin tones. Unlike most mineral sunscreens, which go on thick and leave a white or purple cast, this formula is sheer on diverse skin tones! Zinc Oxide is finely milled, which makes it easy to blend into the skin and virtually impossible to see.

Free of parabens, sulfates, gluten and artificial fragrance. Not tested on animals.

FAQs

Is this a sunscreen or moisturizer or is it both?
This dual-purpose formula is a moisturizer and a broad-spectrum SPF in one! Suitable for normal and combination skin. 

Why is this formula sheer?
Our SheerGenius™ Technology uses finely milled particles to create a sunscreen that provides 100% mineral-active protection without the density of traditional mineral sunscreens. It took 10 years and over 300 formulas/samples for us to perfect this formulation. We were committed to “not settling” and pushed the boundaries to make a product that worked for the entire spectrum of skin tones, from the fairest to the richest.

Should I wear sunscreen or SPF daily?
Yes! SPF or sunscreen should be applied every morning as the final step in your skincare routine and before sun exposure. No matter your skin tone, everyone’s skin needs to be protected from the sun’s harmful UV rays even when it’s cloudy. Not to mention, a daily SPF can also protect your skin from the visible signs of aging and hyperpigmentation. 

It’s also important to note that if you’re using corrective skincare products that contain AHAs or Retinol, your skin could be more sensitive to sun exposure. As a result, you should make sure you’re applying an SPF when using such products. 

Do your mineral SPFs contain Zinc Oxide nanoparticles?
No, both of our mineral sunscreens, ShineBlock™ Oil Control Moisturizer SPF 30 and Sheerglow™ Even Tone Daily Defense Mineral Moisturizer SPF 30 are formulated with non-nano Zinc Oxide.

What is the difference between chemical and physical (mineral) SPFs?

Active Ingredients

Chemical: May include - Oxybenzone, Avobenzone, Octisalate, Octocrylene, Homosalate and Octinoxate

Physical: Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide 

How They Protect the Skin

Chemical: Neutralize UV rays before they can damage the skin. Ingredients are absorbed by top layers of the skin to filter the UVB/UVA rays and convert them into heat, neutralizing them.

Physical: Reflect UV rays. Ingredients form a barrier on the surface of the skin that helps reflect UV rays away from the skin. 

Primary Benefits

Chemical: Depending on the formulation, chemical sunscreens may be easier to rub into the skin and less likely to leave a white cast. Tend to be better for water & sweat resistance. Tend to be thinner and easier to spread.

Physical: Depending on the formulation, mineral sunscreens may be thicker and difficult to fully blend into the skin, leaving a white cast. Tend to be less irritating and better for sensitive or acne-prone skin. Last longer when in direct UV light, but not when wet or sweating. 

Are your products tested on animals?
No. We take pride in being a cruelty-free company!
