Product summary

We believe that "Etude House - SoonJung X Directors Moisture Sun Cream SPF50 PA++++" can provide reliable sun protection based on the ingredients listed. 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).

Its formula is also hydrating, so you might not need an additional moistruizer during the day. 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. The UV filters in this sunscreen are: tinosorb s 0.60% - 0.95%, uvinul a plus 0.80% - 1.20%, uvinul t 3.20% - 3.90%, polysilicone-15 0.75% - 1.10% and terephthalylidene dicamphor sulfonic acid 2.50% - 3.10%.
