Product summary

Based on the ingredient list, we assess that "Biore - Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50" can provide reliable sun protection. We love that it can protect from both UVA and UVB rays (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).

Because it includes good moisturizing ingredients, it can also work as a hydrating day cream. This product prevents early signs of aging by protecting against sun damage (all broad spectrum sunscreens do that).

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

The UV filters in this sunscreen are: tinosorb s 4.00% - 6.00%, uvinul a plus 3.40% - 5.10%, octinoxate 23.00% - 34.00% and uvinul t 2.10% - 3.20%.
