Product summary

"Nivea - Sun UV Face Sunscreen Shine Control SPF50" is using UV filters in a relatively low concentration. Because of this, it might not be able to provide reliable sun protection.

It also works as a moisturizer, so you do not have to use an additional hydrating product.

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. These are the sun protection ingredients in this sunscreen: tinosorb s 0.15% - 0.60%, avobenzone 0.20% - 0.75%, octisalate 0.20% - 0.70%, uvinul t 0.15% - 0.70%, homosalate 0.15% - 0.65% and ensulizole 0.10% - 0.45%.
