Graydon Elements: Sun Cream Complex
It's important to protect your skin against environmental damage at all times of the year. Exposure to sun and pollution can take a serious toll on your skin's health. Our Elements Sun Complex is everything you've been looking for in a cream that helps to block out damaging rays and pollution. Blended with skin soothing, sun protecting zinc (a naturally occurring mineral) and a host of sun reflective carrier oils (such as buriti, raspberry and seabuckthorn), this light moisturizing cream will infuse your face and body with the protection you've been craving without a greasy feeling.
Our unscented formulation also includes Giddy Yo Yo's Spirulina which is high in chlorophyll and rich in the essential fatty acid gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) helping to make skin soft. We topped the formula off with matcha green tea which is rich in polyphenols antioxidants and has been shown to provide internal and external protection from UV radiation and in turn, photo aging.
Apply liberally on your face and body if possible 20 minutes before going outside. Re-apply every 2 hours and always after swimming or perspiring heavily.
