How Active Sunscreen Works

Icon of tick inside sunLong-lasting protection
Active Sunscreen’s innovative water-free gel technology means it only needs to be applied once a day for long-lasting protection. It is water resistant and stays on your skin even when you're sweating. It is SPF30 and broad spectrum, offering protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays.

Apply Active Sunscreen sparingly - you'll know if you've applied too much as it will feel sticky on your skin. It's effective immediately after application. It is non-greasy and does not leave a white film on your skin. We recommend reapplying after vigorous towel drying. To remove Active Sunscreen at the end of the day, wash off with soap and water.

Active is safe for sensitive skin. Our innovative gel formulation does not contain surfactants or preservatives that commonly cause skin irritations. Active Sunscreen is water-free which means bacteria can't grow.

Active Sunscreen contains Cosmagel™, a gel formulation made from compounds found in nature, combined with UVA and UVB protectors, and ingredients that destroy free radicals that are responsible for damaging skin. Active Sunscreen is paraben–free, PEG–free, fragrance-free, and nano-particle-free.  The ingredients used in our formulation are non-carcinogenic. See the full list of ingredients.
