Sunscreen is more advanced than ever before.  Developments in technology enable medical grade ingredients to be added to the formulations so that skin conditions such as acne, sensitivity, wrinkles or dryness can be treated whilst also providing a high level of zinc to naturally protect the skin against UVA and UVB rays.   Daily use has also shown reductions in existing sun damange and pigmentation.

Mr Gilbert says ‘With 12 different types of sunscreen to choose from, all at or below the $50 mark, matching your sunscreen to your skin concerns and with daily use, noticeable health and appearance differences is now possible for everyone.  We call these our great multi-taskers.  They save you time as you are not having to layer serum upon serum to get a positive improvement in your skin.  Some of the EltaMD sunscreens now include a tint, saving even more time and giving a healthily glow without having to use a foundation. Needless to say they are extremely popular throughout all of NZ. ’

EltaMD sunscreens help prevent sunburn and decease the risk of skin cancer and early skin ageing caused by the sun, when used with other sun protection measures. EltaMD sunscreens are formulated with transparent zinc oxide (no white residue is left on the face), are noncomedogenic (do not clog pores), sensitivity-free, fragrance-free and paraben-free.  Not tested on animals.  Also available in water-resistant and handy travel sizes.
