Based on the ingredients included, we believe that "Nivea - Sun Protect Sensitive Sun Lotion Spray SPF50+" can offer 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).
Its formula is also hydrating, so you might not need an additional moistruizer during the day. Like all broad-spectrum sunscreens, this product has an anti-aging benefit.
This sunscreen uses so-called "chemical", or organic UV filters (organic simply means that their molecules contain atoms of carbon). These filters typically give good sun protection and rarely leave a white cast, but they can be irritating for sensitive skin. These are the sun protection ingredients in this sunscreen: tinosorb s 2.50% - 3.00%, avobenzone 3.10% - 3.80%, octisalate 2.10% - 2.60%, uvinul t 1.70% - 2.10%, homosalate 6.10% - 7.50% and ensulizole 1.10% - 1.40%.
