You love to be outside, working out on a beautiful summer day. And you know that you need to apply sunscreen before heading outdoors in order to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays, but do you know what is in your sunscreen?PROTECT ME is a super-light chemical sunscreen with a broad spectrum SPF 30 that shields you from the sun. It is sweat resistant, so it won’t drip off while you are working out. Let’s take a look at the ingredients it contains that defend your skin from sun damage.
Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane and Homosalate Defend Your Skin
Chemical sunscreens absorb the sun’s dangerous rays as opposed to physical sunscreens that block these rays. Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, also known as Avobenzone, absorbs UVA rays, preventing sunburn and premature aging. Homosalate absorbs UVB rays, defending skin cells from DNA damage, which can lead to skin cancer. In addition, both these chemicals have a rating of 2 on Environmental Working Group (EWG) ingredient rankings for toxicity levels, which means their beneficial properties are high. EWG ingredient rankings for toxicity levels show how hazardous ingredients are on both skin and the environment. FRÉ works mindfully, creating products that do not contain toxins and harmful ingredients.
Argania Active Complex© Repairs Your Skin
Argan oil, argan leaf water and argan stem cells make up the patent-pending Argania Active Complex© that is the core of all the FRÉ products. The formula is packed with Vitamin E, which combats the effects of free radicals on your skin caused by environmental toxins. In addition, Vitamin E heals skin cells that have suffered from sun damage.
Dimethicone Lets You Sweat
Intense exercise causes intense sweating. It feels great, but it can make your sunscreen drip right off your face. Dimethicone is water resistant, so it keeps PROTECT ME from running off your skin as you sweat. Additionally, dimethicone has an EWG rating of 1, ranking it as very safe.
Melissa Officinalis Leaf Extract Balances Your Skin
Melissa Officinalis Leaf Extract, also known as Lemon Balm, has been used traditionally as a medicinal ingredient as it has antimicrobial properties. It also helps balance oily and blemished skin, so it will clear your skin as you have fun in the sun.
Aspalathus Linearis (Rooibos) Leaf Extract Prevents Sun Damage
Vitamin D and zinc protect against UV rays and Aspalathus Linearis Leaf Extract, also known as Rooibos extract, is a wonderful source of these ingredients. Rooibos extract blocks sunburn and inflammation. It also is hypoallergenic, soothing redness and blemishes.
PROTECT ME Lets You Enjoy Your Time in the Sun
It’s great to work out outdoors, but it’s essential to protect your skin when you break a sweat. PROTECT ME is a great solution for your active lifestyle. As it is a chemical sunscreen, the skin absorbs it quickly and it does not leave a white residue. It is broad spectrum SPF 30, so you have full coverage from the sun’s harmful rays. It is water-resistant, so it will not drip off or sting your eyes as you sweat. Additionally, a combination of Argania Active Complex© and plant extracts help to restore and repair damaged skin.
