Product summary

We assess that "Avon Care - Sun Face & Body Pure & Sensitive Moisturising Lotion SPF50" 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).

It also works as a moisturizer, so you do not have to use an additional hydrating product. 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. They typically offer good sun protection and rarely leave a white cast, but they can be irritating for some people with sensitive skin. The UV filters in this sunscreen are: oxybenzone 4.50% - 5.50%, avobenzone 2.50% - 3.10%, butyloctyl salicylate 1.10% - 1.40%, octisalate 3.20% - 3.90%, homosalate 5.90% - 7.30% and octocrylene 3.60% - 4.40%.
