Day Defence - SPF 30 Day Cream
Day Defence is a natural SPF 30 day cream with broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection from non-nano zinc oxide.
Reef-friendly, mineral formula. Tube made from sugarcane, a carbon-neutral material that is 100% recyclable.
What it is?:
A light, non-greasy moisturiser providing daily protection from environmental stressors while hydrating the skin.
Why it is awesome:
BROAD SPECTRUM UVA/UVB PROTECTION
Day Defence contains zinc oxide, an effective natural protector against UVA rays, that cause ageing, worsen pigmentation and stress skin, and UVB rays, that cause burning. This powerful defence helps prevent skin damage and signs of ageing, without irritating. Zinc is also reef-friendly.
Buriti oil, a natural SPF booster, is rich in vitamins A and E which help to support and repair the skin. Buriti is the world’s richest natural source of beta-carotene which fights against free radical damage, repairs weakened skin texture and helps to protect against environmental skin stressors such as pollution.
A light blend of shea butter and aloe are soothing and hydrating without feeling sticky. They are fast spreading and absorbed easily, meaning Day Defence can be used before applying makeup or as a last step in your skincare routine, without leaving skin feeling greasy.
Size:60 ml, recyclable sugarcane tube
Day Defence is non-comedogenic and suitable for all skin types and feels.
As Day Defence contains mineral SPF, when applying the correct amount, initially a small white cast may be visible on darker skin tones, however in our trials we found that this disappeared once fully absorbed into the skin. To counteract any potential white cast, we use the smallest non-nano zinc available but as everyone’s skin is different, Day Defence might not suit all skin tones.
Safe for pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Directions for use:
Use daily and apply half a teaspoon of Day Defence as the final step to your skincare routine, either in place of or alongside a moisturiser, serum or Booster.

We always recommend patch testing before use.
