Does shower-on sunscreen really work?

Many of sunscreens in the market can make you look chalky white or greasy, neither of which are great looks, and some of them might not work great with your skin which ends up in irritation. But by not using one, you’re potentially signing up for a future of skin cancer, dark spots, and wrinkles. If you are having trouble deciding whether physical or chemical sunscreens work best for you, or you just cannot be bothered to take 1 minute out of your daily life to apply sunscreen (which you really should be skipping!), a shower-on sunscreen (sunshield) like this might just be the perfect solution.

How does it work?

The shower-on sunshield utilizes a specially engineered capsule of non-allergenic materials. The wrapped active ingredients help reduce the systemic uptake and remain topically on the skin, thus creating a protective layer. This in turn means less penetration and essentially creates a barrier between the skin and the sun’s harmful UV radiation. In addition to making the sunscreen more effective, the technology also locks in natural moisture and hydrates with our encapsulated oils that open and deliver conditioners.

Electrostatic charge – Typically, active ingredients are non-polar or neutrally charged. Since the skin and hair are typically anionic, or negatively charged, like or neutral materials do not readily adhere. The shower-on sunshield technology takes these materials, encapsulates them with a positive charge included in the shell, and then incorporates them in an emulsion. These cationic encapsulates are now attracted to the skin. In short; positively charged encapsulates and delivery system is attracted to negatively charged skin during washing & stays on after rinsing and pat drying, providing full broad spectrum protection of SPF 30.

“What about my face?”

Not to worry. This cosmetically elegant micro-emulsion, designed by a Board Certified Dermatologist, making it suitable for facial cleansing. The encapsulated actives help reduce the (TEWL) or Trans Epidermal Water Loss due to the nature of the capsule wall material and its ability to layer on the skin. Heck, you can even use it as a shampoo to protect your scalp from the UV rays!
