Photonic SPF 30 Light Shifting Solution Mineral Sunscreen + Moisturizer is a unique blend of antioxidants, vitamins, and skin-supportive compounds designed to protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays. Made with globally-sourced oils such as Argan and Tamanu, as well as organic Sesame seed oil, Red Raspberry seed oil, and Blackberry seed oil, this lightweight sunscreen nourishes your skin while providing effective sun protection. Unlike other sunscreens, this formula contains squalane instead of silicones, making it perfect for acne-prone skin.

This elegant and transparent facial sunscreen contains a blend of botanicals and nutrients that not only defend against stress and pollution but also improve the appearance of your skin over time. Perfect for sensitive skin, this fragrance-free and gentle formula is free of silicones, ethyl alcohol, and synthetic irritants. Protect your skin and enhance your natural beauty with Photonic SPF 30.

Blissoma's peach-tone emulsion glides smoothly onto skin and absorbs quickly, creating a more even complexion. The tint is derived from carotenoid antioxidants found in Astaxanthin, a powerful red algae grown in Hawaii for its cell-defending properties.

The nearly invisible, finely ground zinc oxide in this luxurious concoction seamlessly blends into any skin tone and offers extensive UVA/UVB coverage at 13.2%. While other mineral sunscreens often use Butyloctyl Salicylate for a weightless feel on skin, there's no need for that here. The expert formulators at Blissoma dedicated a full year and countless hours in the lab to perfecting this formulation, ensuring that mineral protection feels absolutely phenomenal. Zinc oxide remains the top choice for shielding against a wide range of sun damage and is considered safe for use in both the USA and internationally. Every day, you can trust this product to leave your skin looking and feeling its very best.

Blissoma has revamped their Photonic SPF 30 Light Shifting Solution to meet customer demands for a lightweight, yet deeply hydrating sunscreen and moisturizer. Experience a non-greasy, lightweight finish while giving your skin a supple, elastic and hydrated feel all day long.

Revamped with Ectoin, an amino acid derivative that protects against stress, Blissoma's new formula is enhanced with unique molecules produced by "extremolytes" found in harsh environments. These molecules hydrate and calm skin cells, improving the skin's barrier and calming sensitive skin. Add 3% niacinamide for ultimate skin barrier happiness.

Blissoma's new Photonic SPF 30 formula now includes a freshly fermented extract of Yerba Santa, a native herb of the dry American West with a long history of use in traditional medicine. Through fermentation, this herb's unique glycoproteins become more concentrated, providing your skin with a natural boost to retain moisture. This powerful extract also offers antioxidant and anti-pollution properties, and has been scientifically proven in in-vivo studies to effectively remove impurities and toxins from the skin.

As an expert in skincare, Photonic has curated a selection of healing herbs specifically for those with allergies. Sourced from woman-owned Duvall Herb Farm and Oshala Farm, the organic Gotu Kola and Mullein Leaf used are grown regeneratively and infused with meticulous care to maintain their vitality. Gotu Kola promotes firmer and rejuvenated skin, while Mullein offers a gentle and calming effect.

Photonic SPF 30 features whole, raw botanical oils. Blackberry seed oil, Organic Kalahari Melon seed oil, Baobab oil, and Sesame oil provide nourishing fatty acids and vitamins while being gentle on acne-prone skin. Now a nut-free formulation, makes it friendly for those with nut reactivity.

Squalane remains a crucial element in our blend, providing gentle, allergy-friendly conditioning to the skin without the use of silicones. While often marketed as a "non toxic" ingredient in mineral sunscreens, silicones can still be sneaky. Formulators are drawn to their ability to disperse mineral pigments and make application a breeze. Initially, customers may appreciate the luxurious feel of these products on their skin. After years of experience in the skin industry, they have discovered that silicones are a major cause of breakouts and skin congestion. Recent studies suggest that they can negatively affect your skin's lipids and corneocyte cells. Sunscreen is essential for protecting skin health and can make or break a good skin routine. We challenge you to eliminate silicones and witness the improvement in your skin. You may be surprised by the results!

Photonic has been reformulated to be free of essential oils, addressing yet another potential concern for skin reactions. The small presence of phenethyl alcohol in their natural preservation system provides a gentle scent to the product, without causing any discomfort to the nose or skin.

This formulation is vegan, cruelty-free, and contains natural emollients to maintain its efficacy. The spreadability of Photonic was carefully developed and reflects our dedication to perfection. Blissoma made no compromises, adhering strictly to their goals, resulting in the desired skin feel and use of ethical and safe ingredients that both you and we demand.

Increasing the amount of zinc oxide to achieve a higher SPF required us to improve the durability of our emulsion, prompting us to explore new packaging solutions for proper dispensing. The preservation of Astaxanthin, herbs, and raw oils was a top priority in creating this product, ensuring long-term protection.

The pursuit of performance packaging with an environmentally-friendly emphasis guided the formulators of Photonic to discover an exceptional airless bottle made of glass. The exterior of this bottle boasts a sleek, durable glass design and features a high-quality pump system. The sunscreen is encapsulated inside the bottle and can be easily replaced once the initial capsule is used up. This allows for continuous refills, making the Photonic bottle a sustainable choice.

Airless bottles typically consist of 100% plastic and must be disposed of after a single use. While they effectively safeguard the product, their cost may be higher than desired. This solution addresses the issue by reducing plastic usage and promoting the reuse of key components. Photonic refills are conveniently offered at a discounted price, making it simpler to maintain your healthy skin regimen.

According to product testers, this new formulation was found to provide a noticeable difference in moisturizing capabilities. Throughout the development process, it has been field-tested at music festivals, on hiking trips, and during daily tasks. The testers were enamored with the new formula and preferred it over the original, indicating a high level of satisfaction and potential for long-term use.

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.
