Product summary

The ingredient list suggests that "Alpha-H - Protection Plus Daily Moisturiser SPF 50+ with Pomegranate Seed Oil" can provide reliable sun protection. 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).

It contains good moisturizing ingredients and can double as a hydrating day cream. This product prevents early signs of aging by protecting against sun damage (all broad spectrum sunscreens do that).

Sunscreen filters

This is a so-called "chemical" sunscreen. It means that it uses organic UV filters. They typically offer good sun protection and rarely leave a white cast, but they can be irritating for some people with sensitive skin. These are the sun protection ingredients in this sunscreen: oxybenzone 3.20% - 4.70%, avobenzone 2.20% - 3.40%, octocrylene 5.30% - 7.90% and ensulizole 1.40% - 2.10%.
