Medik8 Physical Sunscreen
Free from nanoparticles and rich in antioxidants, Physical Sunscreen SPF 30 is light enough for daily use and strong enough to defend against photoageing.

Key Benefits

Nanoparticles are exceptionally small molecules. They are often used in sunscreens to improve texture, but recently there has been some controversy regarding their safety. Experts believe that their tiny size allows them to penetrate the deepest layers of skin causing significant damage. Physical Sunscreen is 100% free from nanoparticles. We use molecules that are optimally-sized, meaning you get a light, velvety texture without any risk. Fast-absorbing and easy-to-spread, the broad spectrum formula glides over skin without leaving any residue. The smooth, fragrance-free cream soothes and calms the skin while providing powerful protection against free radical damage caused by UV exposure. Ideal for use in the morning at the end of any Medik8 skincare regime to protect from premature skin ageing. Carefully crafted for use after chemical peels when delicate skin is highly sensitive to UV exposure.

Key Ingredients

Carnosine

A protective peptide that is naturally produced in the body, carnosine blocks skin-damaging sugars from binding to collagen in the skin, preventing the formation of wrinkles, while shielding skin from infrared damage.

Marrubium Vulgare Extract

The next-generation antioxidant behind our anti-pollution technology. By strengthening the skin’s natural barrier, it prevents damage caused by environmental pollutants.

Thiotaine

An amino acid that occurs naturally in the skin, thiotaine supports antioxidant protection to minimise signs of premature ageing.

Zinc Oxide & Titanium Dioxide

Mineral physical UV filters that provide broad spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB rays.
UV rays are responsible for 80% of visible facial ageing,* so keeping skin protected from the sun is the key to looking youthful for longer. Physical Sunscreen is a high-performance SPF 30 sunscreen that provides powerful broad spectrum protection from UVA and UVB rays. Unlike chemical sunscreens that work by absorbing UV energy and converting it into heat within the skin, Physical Sunscreen works by reflecting the sun’s radiation away from the skin, much like a mirror. Fast-absorbing and rich in natural antioxidants, it is light enough for everyday use and strong enough to defend against all signs of photoageing. The advanced formula glides over skin without leaving a chalky residue, yet is 100% free-from nanoparticles. Perfect for daily protection, the innovative sunscreen is reinforced with anti-pollution, anti-infrared and anti-A.G.E. technologies to shield skin from environmental aggressors while preventing lines and wrinkles. A fantastic base for make-up; skin is left protected, hydrated and supple. [*F. Flament et al., Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology, 2013, 6, pp 221-232]
