Product summary

We assess that "Alpha-H - Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF 50" can provide reliable sun protection based on the ingredient list. It can protect from both UVA and UVB rays. This is great news because not all sunscreens with SPF ratings give UVA protection. (UVA rays do not cause sunburn, but still damage our skin and lead to early aging).

This moisturizer should also be hydrating enough to use without an additional moisturizer during the day. Like all broad-spectrum sunscreens, this product helps prevent early signs of aging.

Sunscreen filters

This is a so-called "chemical" sunscreen. It means that it uses organic UV filters.

Here are the exact UV filters in this sunscreen: avobenzone 2.50% - 3.10%, octisalate 2.20% - 2.60%, uvinul t 1.70% - 2.10%, homosalate 6.30% - 7.70% and octocrylene 4.40% - 5.40%.
