SPF 25 Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB natural mineral sunscreen. Transparent, non nano zinc oxide recipe. Complete, nutritious daily facial moisturizer for all skin types and ages. Made with a base of organic herb infusions and vitamin rich seed oils Features antioxidant-rich Astaxanthin red algae extract. (1.6oz / 46g)
While many sunscreens focus on being just a barrier product this recipe is dense with antioxidants, vitamins, phytonutrients and skin supportive compounds. Oils like Argan and Tamanu hail from global environments where sun is intense, and have been used for centuries to protect skin from the elements. Raw, organic Sesame seed oil, Red Raspberry seed oil, and Blackberry seed oil add lightweight, allergy-conscious nutrition that supports the zinc oxide's sun protective benefits. Conditioning squalane in the emollient mix means we don't need any clogging silicones to suspend our mineral particles. That's great news for acne-prone skin, as silicones can cause congestion.
Photonic has a lovely pink hue to it, but it's not just a tint, it's Astaxanthin. This red algae ingredient is grown in controlled tanks in Hawaii and produces a super pure CO2 oleoresin extract. Astaxanthin has a good deal of study behind it showing its antioxidant action and ability to support the body in stressful situations like sun exposure. The amount we have used will not noticeably stain the skin. The hue will disappear into their natural skin tone without changing it. That's the magic of colorful nutrients.
Zinc oxide offers stable, broad spectrum protection that chemical sunscreens just cannot match. Many chemical sunscreens absorb only UVA or UVB light. UVA absorbent chemical sunscreens are notoriously unstable. They degrade when exposed to sunlight, right when you need them most! Minerals like zinc have no such problem, as they reflect both types of rays easily. That means you keep more of the deeply penetrating UVA rays off you.

Active Ingredient: 12.5% micronized (non nano), uncoated zinc oxide
Use this as a complete replacement to daily moisturizer, or choose to layer with a serum or moisturizer underneath for extra nourishment. We do recommend that Photonic be applied as a final layer in the skincare routine so as not to disturb the distribution of the mineral on skin. Therefore oil serums should *not* be applied on top of this product as the oils could move the zinc around.

Hooray! I was fortunate to be able to test Photonic early on and it has been my go-to facial sunscreen and moisturizer for the summer. When I knew I was going to be outside for the day, or much of the day, it's what I put on. I've been elated with the results. No sunburn for me this summer! Not even a pink nose. It goes on just like Blissoma's other moisturizers -- it's thin and doesn't feel heavy or like it's going to slide off your face like other facial sunscreens can. It only takes a little and easily covers your face. I'm so excited that this exists. –Carrie
Super Light + Lovely! I'm such a fan of all of Julie's integrous creations, but I am so grateful for this Sunscreen! It is so light and truly weightless. Its very easy to wear when I know I need my skin to look nice, but also be protected from UV. I also know because of the amazing botanicals in it, that my skin is benefiting from that part of the formula too! –Laurel
Sunscreen Yes! This is absolutely the best “clean beauty” sunscreen I’ve come across in my 17 years as an esthetician. This is a must have! It is sheer, light and effective. Can’t say enough good things. Thank you Julie! –Karin
Great even coverage with a hint of tint that let me use this product instead of foundation. I am so glad that Blissoma added this high quality sunscreen that I have been trying to find for years. –Julianne H
Finally! I have been a longtime user of Blissoma's skin care regime (long enough that I've, uh, "matured" into different products than I started with!) and facial sunscreen has been on my wishlist the whole time. Wish granted! This product has the perfect texture -- "there" enough that I don't feel like I'm throwing water on my face, but absolutely unobtrusive into my makeup routine (on days when I get it together) or my completely unadorned face (on, ok, most days.) Nothing I would change about it, and 25 is the perfect SPF. I'll have to start thinking up new wishes now! –Amanda
Awesome Love this sunscreen! Non greasy, goes on smooth, it works great I am outside constantly. It helped me from not getting sun burned. –Brenda
