Saw the viral YouTube video "How The Sun Sees You" showing photoaging? Check out the UV Scan images below of UberZinc and its lasting protection. Physical sunscreen (non-chemical) is not absorbed into bloodstream but stays on the skin. Made without nasty chemicals found to be linked to hormone imbalance, only non-toxic ingredients that protects and calms the skin!

Synergie Uberzinc Essential Daily Moisturizer offers broad spectrum sun protection with 21% Zinc Oxide (natural mineral source, micronized, non-nano) in a light natural base with pure green tea extract, a powerful antioxidant. 

An excellent makeup base with anti-inflammatory properties. Suitable for all skin types. May also be used in the evening as a light moisturizer, particularly for irritated, sensitive or acneic skin.


Active Ingredients:

Zinc Oxide 21%

 Zinc oxide is shown to have anti-inflammatory qualities. Known o be non-irritating, it is suitable for extremely sensitive skin and skin following clinical treatment.

It is also indicated for use on acne sufferers as zinc oxide is shown to be non-comedogenic and will not clog pores. 

Green Tea Extract

Known to be a powerful antioxidant that helps with neutralizing free radicals, which are attributed to disease and aging. Certain clinical trial shows that green tea may help to reduce UV-induced sunburn and skin damage.

The Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology (December 31, 2001) stated that the polyphenols, the active ingredients in green tea, "possess antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic properties."


Recent technological breakthroughs have enabled the natural mineral zinc oxide (i.e. traditional thick white Zinc Cream) to be finely ground into tiny particles that are invisible to the naked eye and appear clear when applied to the skin. 
 
These new sheer Zinc Oxide sunscreens are known as physical sunscreen which physically sits on top of the skin and reflect all UV lights - both UVA and UVB, giving full protection from burning, photo-aging and potential skin cancer. They do not produce a 'white mask effect' on the face.
 
Compare this to the common chemical-absorbing sunscreens which are absorb into the skin, bloodstream and liver, found in the urine just hours later. Synergie Uberzinc does NOT contain these common sunscreen chemicals (which are to be avoided):
 
• Octyl methoxycinnamate
• Butyl methoxydibenzoylmethane
• Oxybenzone
• Benzophenone
