Product summary

We believe that "Peter Thomas Roth - Max Clear Invisible Priming Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 45" can provide reliable sun protection based on the ingredients listed. 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 helps prevent early signs of aging.

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