Weightless physical sunscreen

An invisible physical sunscreen that blends easily on all skin tones and works for every skin type! Easy to apply after your usual Dermalogica moisturiser.

All year round we are exposed to UV rays whatever the weather. Wearing an SPF everyday is one of the ways you can help to protect your skin from premature ageing, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and skin cancer.

Physical sunscreens generally leave a visible white residue on the skin. Dermalogica have created the brand new Invisible Physical Defense that blends into all skin tones without being visible.

The invisible, weightless defence that blends easily onto the skin, featuring ultra-sheer Zinc Oxide. Say goodbye to thick, white residue with this physical SPF formula that provides added blue light protection and helps soothe away the effects of environmental aggressors.

Bio-active Mushroom Complex helps soothe skin, and reduce UV-induced redness and dryness. Antioxidant Green Tea helps defend skin against free radical damage. Ideal for all skin types, including sensitive.

Key Benefits:

  • Helps defend against UVA/UVB and Blue Light
  • Soothes all skin types, even sensitive.
  • Blends easily on all skin tones

Key Ingredients:

A Bioactive Mushroom Complex, composed of two botanical ingredients from the Himalayas: Cordyceps Sinensis and Trametes Versicolor mushrooms. Together, they help soothe skin and reduce UV-induced redness and dryness.

Antioxidant Matcha Green Tea (rich in Vitamins A, C and E, and polyphenols) to help fight free-radical skin damage from UV and visible light.

Argan Oil, Tocopherol, and Bisabolol, which help provide soothing, antioxidant benefits.

Sodium Hyaluronate (aka Hyaluronic Acid) to help hydrate skin.

No chemical sunscreens, artificial colors and fragrances.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does Invisible Physical Defense SPF 30 really blend to invisible on all skin tones? Why does it look white when it comes out of the tube?

Yes, this product blends to invisible on all skin tones, even darker ones. It comes out white because of the Zinc Oxide in the formula, but the white appearance dissipates as you blend it onto the skin.

Why is this product SPF 30 and not a higher SPF?

For this product, we strived to provide the highest SPF possible while maintaining the best wearability. To provide a higher SPF, we had to compromise wearability, and we wanted this product to blend to invisible on all skin tones. Dermatologists typically recommend using a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, which blocks 97% of UVB rays. SPF 50 blocks 98% of UVB rays – so the difference in UV rays blocked is only about 1 percent. (No sunscreen blocks all UV rays.)

Is this product replacing any Dermalogica products?

Yes, this product is replacing Super Sensitive Shield SPF 30.

Which is more important: SPF number or frequency of application?

Application, by far! While SPF numbers matter, whether you wear a sunscreen daily – and correctly – matters more.

How do I know which sunscreen is best for me? Chemical or physical? One with SPF 15, 30 or 50+?

Why is this product ideal for sun protection post-treatment?

Zinc Oxide is unlikely to sensitize skin, which makes it a reliable choice for skin that has undergone a treatment. Plus, this formula contains Bisabolol, which helps soothe and calm skin.

Should this product be used even if I am not regularly outdoors?

Yes! UVA rays are always present, even on rainy or cloudy days; and they can penetrate glass. Besides that, blue light is everywhere, which is why it is imperative for you to wear sunscreen daily and indoors.

Will this product look invisible and wear well under make-up?

Yes! With all sunscreens, wait until their sunscreen feels “dry” before you apply make-up over it.

What is nanotechnology and does Dermalogica use it?

Nanotechnology uses nanoparticles to help improve the appearance of physical sunscreens. Nanoparticles are very small particles (less than 100 nanometers). Dermalogica does not use nanotechnology.

What is the difference between a chemical and a physical sunscreen?

Sunscreens are either chemical or physical. They both protect skin from harmful UV rays but they do this in different ways. Chemical sunscreens use ingredients that absorb and transform UV rays into heat. Chemical sunscreens suit most skin types and conditions; active lifestyles. A physical sunscreen uses minerals that sit on top of skin and reflect away UV rays. Physical sunscreens are perfect for all skin types and conditions, including sensitive; post- treatment SPF.

  • Not very impressed to be honest. With it being called invisible, I thought this would be a very light lotion or cream but it’s very thick and tacky when on , not as nice as other sun care products I’ve bought in the past & I don’t think I’d buy it again
