The newest additions to the family; the Essential Solar Protector, SPF 47, and the Hyaluronic Facial Solar Protector, SPF 44, both reef safe

We are thrilled to not only gratify our customers with these new reef safe and affordable sunscreens, but to be one of the few dermatologist -approved products of this kind on the market.

Skin Resource.MD, a cosmeceutical line created by board-certified dermatologists and based out of San Diego, California, launched two new sunscreens this week, the Essential Solar Protector Moisturizing Sunscreen, SPF 47 and the Hyaluronic Facial Solar Protector Tinted Moisturizing Sunscreen, SPF 44. Both sunscreens are reef safe and board-certified dermatologist tested and approved.

The Essential Solar Protector is a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen utilizing chemical-free ingredients and formulated with only physical sunscreen actives to provide daily sun protection. It creates a moisture barrier, preventing water from evaporating the skin's surface and binding moisture back into the skin. It is formulated with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide to provide physical protection, which sits on top of the skin to deflect and scatter damaging UV rays, and is free of commonly known irritants such as sulfates and parabens. The gentle formula makes this a great alternative for sensitive skin types and for post-procedure skin. The Essential Solar Protector can be purchased at for $28.00 for 4.9 ounces.

The Hyaluronic Facial Solar Protector Tinted Moisturizing Sunscreen is also a water resistant, physical sunscreen that features a moisturizing hyaluronic acid base which effectively hydrates the skin to restore a youthful appearance. It has a sheer tint for fair to medium skin types. It is also formulated as a chemical-free alternative to facial sun protection and is a great option for the most sensitive skin types, including post-procedure. Zinc oxide (10%) and titanium dioxide (5.5%) provide protection against UVA-aging
and UVB-burning rays. This product is light enough to wear alone or under makeup for everyday protection. It is $28.00 for 2.1 ounces, and can be purchased at
