Our premium moisturiser-meets-sunscreen gives effective sun protection as well as nurturing skin. It is sensational for sensitive skin and will not congest pores.
It will not cause the common sunscreen issues of congestion, sensitivity, hyperpigmentation and early ageing - because 17 concentrated 'medicinal grade' plant, flower and herb extracts 'buffer' the three TGA-approved sunscreening ingredients.
Does not contain PABA, mineral oil, or nano particles.
Why use an SPF 15 rather than SPF 30 or SPF 50?
- SPF 15 is the ideal SPF for most sun exposure situations without the double or triple chemical load (sunscreening chemicals) of SPF 30, 50 etc.
- SPF 15 gives similar sun protection as 'higher' SPFs when applied every two hours - as all sunscreens must be.
You may think if the SPF is ‘higher’ then your sun protection will equivalently rise too. That isn’t the case. While an SPF 15 will block around 93 percent of UVB rays, doubling the SPF to 30 will block 97 percent; SPF50 blocks 98 percent. That’s only a 4 or 5 percent increase – for what the marketing of these products would have you believe is double.
Dermatologists and the Cancer Council say there is no real difference between using an SPF 15 or 30 and using SPF 50 or higher.
SPF levels are also a gauge of how long it takes to become sunburned compared to how long it takes to burn without wearing sunscreen. If you generally take 20 minutes to burn, an SPF 15 should allow you to go 300 minutes before burning. However it is not all recommended nor is it safe to go 300 minutes in the sun before putting on more sunscreen. Ever.
Generally an SPF 15 is sufficient, especially if it can be worn when swimming. For maximum protection against prolonged exposure to the sun it is highly recommended to also wear protective clothing, a hat and effective sunglasses.
Remember, all sunscreens must be reapplied every two hours regardless of SPF.
Standard sunscreen advice: avoid applying to children under 2 years of age. Keep very young children out of strong sunlight.
Our ingredient choices: Simplicité Moisturiser with Sunscreen contains approved sunscreening agents along with significant amounts of nutritive, healing, anti-toxin, soothing plant extracts to balance the formula. Sunscreening ingredients in this product have been approved by senior government scientists in the European Union, the USA, Australia, Canada, and Japan. They make their decisions after reviewing every known study. These scientists don't refer to internet articles to make their decisions. Neither is Simplicité swayed by internet conjecture, or out of context articles on certain ‘organic’ websites.
There are 2500 treatments per day in Australia for skin cancers. 2000 Australians die each year from skin cancer. Simplicité believes that it’s therefore irresponsible to argue the effectiveness or safety of approved sunscreen ingredients.
Simplicité Natural Skin Care is an ethical skin care brand renowned for results since 1992. Our gentle, luxurious and highly nutritive products give magnificent skin at any age.
Why is Simplicité different?
Simplicité isn't just another natural or organic skin care range. The quality, combinations and synergy of plant extracts in our products are unique and must be experienced in order to feel and smell the beauty; and to find results for concerns such as early ageing, sun damage, sensitivity, redness, hyperpigmentation, congestion and acne.
Simplicité is the go-to if you’re tired of using skin care that doesn’t work, if you’ve struggled - perhaps even thinking ‘that’s just how my skin is’.
Crammed with pure, potent and organic ingredients, some of which grow naturally on our wild bush farm in Queensland’s Lockyer Valley, the Simplicité range strengthens skin - gives it the nutrients it needs to easily resist and overcome common issues.
