Product summary

"Physicians Formula - Murumuru Butter Lip Cream, SPF 15, Pinkini" offers broad spectrum protection. It means that it protects from both UVA and UVB rays (you can remember UVB as "burning" sunlight - they cause sunburn. You can remember UVA rays as "aging" - they do not lead to sunburn, but they cause photodamage and contribute to early signs of skin aging and hyperpigmentation). On the negative side, the SPF of this lip product is not high enough. We recommend to use a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 daily.

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. Here are the exact UV filters in this sunscreen: avobenzone 23.00% - 34.00%, octinoxate 4.20% - 6.30% and octocrylene 4.60% - 7.00%.

There are quite a few common irritants in this product, including ingredients without particular skin benefits. We would not recommend it for sensitive skin. We assess the overall irritancy of this lip product to be medium. For a detailed overview of all potential irritants: click here
