  • INGREDIENTS AND TECHNOLOGIES +
    • ADVANCED UVA/UVB SUN FILTER SYSTEM

      As suncare specialists, we use innovative technologies to make sure you achieve the right balance of colour and protection whenever you enjoy the sun.

      Each of the advanced UVA/UVB sun filter systems is a powerful sun protection technology developed by PIZ BUIN®. They offer effective photostable, broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection, and help achieve that PIZ BUIN® sunscreens comply with the latest European Commission recommendation on sunscreen products.

      All of the advanced UVA/UVB sun filter systems help to protect from UVA and UVB radiation.

      UVB rays - "burning rays" - harm the skin’s surface and are the main cause of sunburn.

      UVA rays – "aeging rays" - penetrate deeper and damage collagen and elastin, which can result in premature skin ageing and cancer.

      The advanced UVA/UVB sun filter systems contain both UVA and UVB filters to help protect against the sun and long term skin damage while also protecting against the more serious effects of UVA radiation. They cover most of the UVA / UVB spectrum, offering broadband protection for your skin.

    • GLYCERINE

      Glycerine attracts water and holds it in the skin to help maintain a good hydration level.

    • COLD SHIELD COMPLEX

      The Cold Shield Complex helps to provide long lasting moisturisation, protecting the skin from extreme wind and cold. It contains: Shea Butter, Trehalose and Glycerin. 

    • SHEA BUTTER

      Shea butter is derived from the shea nut tree, which originally grows in Western Africa. It has been used for centuries to moisturise and protect skin from the effects of sun, wind, heat and salt water. It is also widely used in cosmetics because of its nourishing, moisturising and protective properties.

    • TREHALOSE

      Trehalose is a naturally occurring disaccharide and exists in a wide variety of daily foods and animals. It is considered to protect living organisms from hostile environmental conditions like extreme cold.

    • EDELWEISS

      Known as the 'White Star of the Glacier', it has a strong natural defence system that enables it to survive the intense sunlight and extreme cold and wind common to alpine environments. The Edelweiss extract helps to neutralise free radicals generated in the skin*, helping it maintain its defences against UV radiation.
