Ingredient Spotlight

Beautiful Skincare backed by Science

Zinc

Zinc oxide is regarded as the safest, most effective ingredient in SPF. Less irritating than chemical SPF, zinc oxide offers mineral protection and works by scattering and absorbing UV rays

Homosalate

Homosalate is a type of salicylate, an organic compound. Salicylates prevent direct skin exposure from the sun’s harmful rays by absorbing Ultraviolet (UV) light

Broad Spectrum SPF

Broad Spectrum SPF protects your skin from both UVA and UVB rays. UVA rays cause premature ageing in the skin, while UVB rays cause sunburn and contribute to skin cancer

Obagi Sun Protection

Protecting your skin from sun damage is one of the most important and easiest steps in your skin care routine to protect against sun damage and to prevent skin ageing.

Obagi’s range of sun protectors have been formulated to suit a range of skin types and needs. Each product in the Obagi Sun Protection range provides either physical, chemical or combined protection against harmful UVA, UVB and IR rays, in a range of different finishes.

What’s the difference?

UVA rays contribute to the development of skin cancer, and are known to accelerate signs of ageing.

UVB rays cause short term side effects such as sunburn, but can also lead to the development of skin cancer, hyperpigmentation and signs of photoageing.

IR rays (infrared radiation) cause the production of free radicals, which usually lead to fine lines and wrinkles, inflammation, loss of skin elasticity and premature ageing. When combined with UV rays, IR is also shown to inflict cumulative damage.

Top tip: The easiest way to remember which type of radiation causes which type of damage by looking at their names: UVA rays = Ageing, UVB rays = Burning.
