The Ordinary Mineral UV Filters SPF 15 with Antioxidants

  • Description & Features

The Mineral UV Filter formulas avoid the use of any nanoparticles. Instead, a refined dispersion of micronized ZnO and TiO2 in flexible, high-volatility, non-comedogenic silicones allows the formulations to remain extremely lightweight by optimizing the amount of the blocking agents. This formulation uses mainly ZnO for its protective effects (because in addition to reflecting/refracting light, ZnO is actually also able to absorb UV rays without creating oxygen radicals) and the supporting TiO2 that it contains is only in rutile form (no anatase form of TiO2 is used at all since it's an aggressive producer of free radicals).   

Directions:
Shake well before use. Apply to face liberally and evenly 15 to 20 minutes before UV exposure. To maintain protection during continued UV exposure, reapply every 2 hours or after material water exposure, towel-drying, swimming, or extensive perspiration. Use a water-resistant sunscreen if swimming or sweating. Suitable for all skin tones.
For use on children less than 6 months of age, consult a physician prior to use. Keep out of eyes. Rinse with water to remove.
If irritation occurs, cease use and consult a physician. Use only as directed on unbroken skin. Patch testing prior to use is advised.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too thick and greasy, weird color I wanted to try this mineral sunscreen because of the low price, but got quickly disappointed. The colour makes the face almost blue white, very pale. Definitely need foundation or something else to cover it up. It stayed very shiny and felt greasy and thick on my skin. Considering it is only 15 SPF, it gets diluted much more when you apply a smaller amount to avoid heavy feel. So, in reality you get only 5 SPF if that. There are much better sunscreens out there. I wanted to like it, but it didn't work. I tried a few times and gave up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product. First facial sunscreen I’ve ever been impressed by. Feels great on, doesn’t look greasy or clog pores. And the price point is beyond amazing. The Ordinary is quickly becoming my new favourite brand.
