How it works
Live Live Sunscreen with MSM does have UVA protection. Here is a little more information;
UVA (ultraviolet-A) occurs in shortwave (320-340 nm, a.k.a UVA-2) and longwave (340-400 nm, a.k.a. UVA-1). UVB (ultraviolet-B) occurs in shortwave between 280 to 320 nm (nanometers or billionths of a meter).
One of the ingredients in Live Live Sunscreen, Zinc oxide, is a physical sun blocking agent that work primarily by reflecting/scattering ultraviolet light. It has a broad range of effectiveness, covering UVB as well as both UVA short (320-340 nm, a.k.a UVA-2) and UVA long (340-400 nm, a.k.a. UVA-1).
Another ingredient in Live Live Sunscreen, titanium dioxide, is a physical sunscreen protecting against UVB and short UVA (a.k.s. UNA-1) light and it protects up to 385nm (of 400nm).
As a single ingredient, zinc oxide is the broadest range sunscreen on the market. Bothzinc oxide and titanium dioxide have a long history of safe use as a sun block and cosmetic ingredient. They are not irritating and more compatible with sensitive skin than chemical sunscreens. In fact, zinc oxide is a skin protectant and anti-irritant, and is widely used in treating various forms of dermatitis/skin irritation, including nappy rash!
How to use it
Apply liberally throughout the day.
A note about Vitamin A in the formula:
The esters from essential fatty acids in vitamin A need to be converted to retinoic acid before being active and photosensitive. In addition the vitamin A in our synergistic formula is coated with peptides which further reduces a possibility of photo sensitivity. Also, please note that there are various forms of vitamin A.
Vitamin A does have a few benefits: it helps to protect the skin from free radical damage, helps speeding the cell renewal process, minor burns and scrapes, and also helps reduce wrinkles and stretch marks.
Free for any preservatives, heat processing or synthetics.
