Banishing and Preventing Blackheads

There’s nothing as unsightly on your face as a large blackhead – with the exception of a large whitehead.

  • Cosmetically Elegant
  • Free of: chemical sunscreens, preservatives, oils, fragrances, or PABA
  • SPF 40
  • Contains #1 (Zinc Oxide) and #2 (Titanium Dioxide) rated sunscreen filters
  • Broad Spectrum UVA-UVB
  • Photostable, will not break down in sunlight
  • Water Resistant (80 minutes)

Chemical formulas can cause some irritation if you have sensitive skin, but they are virtually invisible. Physical SPFs have a reputation for being chalky, but it’s worth trying out the newer formulas as they’re much lighter.
