Physical Sunscreen™

Anti-Pollution Broad Spectrum SPF 30

90ml / 36 €
UV rays are responsible for 80% of visible facial ageing,* so keeping skin protected from the sun is the key to looking youthful for longer. Physical Sunscreen is a high-performance SPF 30 sunscreen that provides powerful broad spectrum protection from UVA and UVB rays. Fast-absorbing and rich in natural antioxidants, it is light enough for everyday use and strong enough to defend against all signs of photoageing. The advanced formula glides over skin without leaving a chalky residue, yet is 100% free-from nanoparticles. Perfect for daily protection, the innovative sunscreen is reinforced with anti-pollution, anti-infrared and anti-A.G.E. technologies to shield skin from environmental aggressors while preventing lines and wrinkles. A fantastic base for make-up; skin is left protected, hydrated and supple.

How It Works

Medik8’s intelligent formula provides exceptional sun protection in a lightweight cream that doesn’t leave a chalky cast on the skin. 100% nano-free physical UV filters, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, work in synergy with skin to shield against both UVA and UVB rays. Moringa extract provides superior anti-pollution defence to limit the damage caused by environmental pollutants. Amino acid thiotaine bolsters the antioxidant power of the sunscreen, minimising the free radical damage that can contribute to premature ageing. The sunscreen also includes anti-glycation (or anti-A.G.E.) technology. Glycation is a natural ageing process that occurs when excess sugars in our body bind themselves to proteins such as collagen and elastin, transforming them into advanced glycation end products or A.G.E.s for short. As a result, the glycated protein fibres can no longer be renewed, which leads to fine lines and wrinkles. Physical Sunscreen uses carnosine to inhibit the glycation reaction and keep skin protected from forming cross links. Carnosine can also protect the skin from infrared rays, which are known to play a part in the breakdown of collagen. Overall, skin is cared for and protected, with the ultimate defensive sunscreen for everyday wear.

Key Ingredients

Zinc Oxide & Titanium Dioxide – Mineral physical UV filters that provide broad spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB rays.

Moringa Extract – A next-generation antioxidant that forms an invisible urban shield on the surface of the skin to prevent damage caused by environmental pollutants.

Carnosine – A protective peptide that is naturally produced in the body, carnosine blocks skin-damaging sugars from binding to collagen in the skin, preventing the formation of wrinkles, while shielding skin from infrared damage.

Thiotaine – An amino acid that occurs naturally in the skin, thiotaine supports antioxidant protection to minimise signs of premature ageing.
