While many of us love the sun-kissed look, nobody appreciates the signs of photo-aging being sped up by sun-exposure. Excessive unprotected time in the sun leads to premature wrinkling, sagging, a leathery texture and hyperpigmentation. Even worse, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that the sun causes 90 percent of all nonmelanoma skin cancers.

This is why we strongly advise you to use a broad spectrum (UVA & UVB) sunscreen even if you do nothing else! Sunscreen has the most science supporting its ability to protect against photo-aging and skin cancer, making it the most critical part of any skincare protocol.

Our DEFEND 30 SPF sunscreen by Dr. Irene Gladstein uses Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide – the only two ingredients that are not absorbed by your skin, and act as an actual physical shield against UV Radiation – giving you unparalleled protection. Unlike the sticky, greasy sunscreens most of us have experienced, DEFEND uses an anhydrous silicone elastomer vehicle that leaves a non-shiny, non-sticky, film on the skin surface. Additionally, it contains melanin which provides sheer tint that helps even out skin tone and acts as an extra layer of protection. As with all of our products, it is 100% fragrance-free and preservative-free.
