Medik8 Physical Sunscreen Spf 50+ 60ml
Physical Sunscreen is a high-performance SPF 50+ sunscreen that provides powerful broad spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays. Up to 80% of premature visible skin ageing is caused by exposure to UV rays,* so keeping skin protected from the sun is the key to looking youthful for longer. Using only non-nano mineral sunscreen filters, Physical Sunscreen both absorbs and reflects damaging UV rays to protect the skin. The advanced formula glides over skin, quickly absorbing to leave a lightweight protective veil over the complexion.
Perfect for daily protection and rich in antioxidants, the innovative sunscreen is reinforced with anti-pollution, anti-infrared, and anti-glycation technologies to shield skin from environmental aggressors to help prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
Physical Sunscreen is coral reef-friendly and provides a semi-matte finish ideal for an oilier or blemish-prone skin type looking to incorporate daily sun protection.
The new and improved Physical Sunscreen boasts broad spectrum protection with SPF 50+, in a lightweight, non-sticky formula.
Non-nano mineral filter zinc oxide reflects and absorbs UV rays to protect the skin from sun damage. Marrubium vulgare extract provides superior anti-pollution defence to limit the damage caused by environmental pollutants. Physical Sunscreen also includes anti-glycation (also known as anti-A.G.E.) technology. Glycation is a natural ageing process that occurs when excess sugars in our body bind themselves to proteins such as collagen and elastin, transforming them into advanced glycation end products (or A.G.E.s for short). As a result, the glycated protein fibres can no longer be renewed, which can lead to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Physical Sunscreen uses carnosine to help inhibit the glycation reaction and keep skin protected from glycation-derived skin ageing. Carnosine can also protect the skin from infrared rays, which are known to play a part in the breakdown of collagen.

Zinc Oxide a non-nano, mineral sunscreen filter with broad spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays.
Carnosine a protective peptide that is naturally produced in the body, carnosine blocks skin-damaging sugars from binding to collagen in the skin in a process called glycation. This helps to prevent the formation of wrinkles, while shielding skin from infrared damage.
