Product summary

We assess that "CeraVe - AM Facial Moisturising Lotion SPF50 for Normal to Dry Skin" 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).

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 sunscreen uses so-called "chemical", or organic UV filters (organic simply means that their molecules contain atoms of carbon).
