Suntegrity Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen and Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30
Suntegrity Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen and Primer SPF 30 is a 3-in-1 facial moisturizer, sunscreen and makeup primer. This multi-tasker is formulated with organic ingredients and youth-promoting antioxidants, such as astaxanthin, to help provide additional sun protection, moisture and hydration. Non-nano sized zinc-oxide protects against UV damage and soothes skin conditions, like rosacea, acne and melasma.
TIA Review by Marta:
Not only is Suntegrity Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen and Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 a rare sun protector that is based only on zinc oxide (no titanium dioxide and certainly no chemical sunscreens here), but- and I know that all you other antioxidant-files out there are going to be as excited as I was- it comes with astaxanthin.
This is a rather thick cream and if I am completely honest I'd prefer the consistency to be a little lighter. In the ruthless pursuit of science, I slathered it on to my nose for several days and was pleasantly surprised to find that it did not block or further enlarge the pores there.
The slight chalkiness that is typical of mineral sunscreens is evident for only a few moments and then seems to fade. Wear this over your serum and you won't need an additional moisturizer thanks to the aloe and hyaluronic acid.
The nicest thing about applying Suntegrity All Natural Moisturizing Face Protection SPF30 is that you get to think about some of the good things it is adding to your skin. Top of that list is, of course, astaxanthin, a dark red cartenoid pigment that is present, amongst other things, in salmon. A radical scavenger, analyses have shown that astaxanthin is also an efficient absorber of specific ultraviolet sunlight rays that may contribute to skin aging and cancer. It gets an antioxidant boost from red algae and pomegranate.
