Having lost my best friend at the age of 28 to skin cancer, I know how important it is to take care of our skin. I am sure you’re well aware that skin cancer affects 2 million people in the United States each year, that it’s the most common form of cancer, and that 1 in 5 Americans will develop it over the course of their lifetime.
But did you know that you’re more likely to develop skin cancer in certain areas – and therefore, it’s more important to keep them well protected?
The eye area represents less than 1% of total body skin, yet skin cancers found in the area account for 10% of all skin cancers.
In response to this clear need for safe, viable eye protection, SkinCeuticals, a leader in SPF technology, rose to the challenge of developing a broad-spectrum sunscreen that would protect without irritating, running into the eyes, or disrupting the application of additional products.
The result is here – and with the introduction of Physical Eye UV Defense SPF 50, SkinCeuticals has successfully formulated the highest SPF eye-protective product on the market. The all-mineral sunscreen formula doesn’t use water, which prevents the product from migrating into the eyes. It is developed with a universal tint to unify skin tone under the eye and provides an optimal base, priming for smoother makeup application.
SkinCeuticals Physical Eye UV Defense SPF 50
The thin, delicate skin around the eye represents 1% of the skin’s total surface area, but over 10% of skin cancers occur in the area. Delivering a new standard in eye care, this daily, 100% mineral filter base defends, enhances, and optimizes the entire eye area. Formulated specifically for the unique structure of the more sensitive skin around the eye, Physical Eye UV Defense provides broad spectrum SPF 50 protection without migrating into or irritating the eyes. Translucent color spheres create a unifying tint that enhances all skin tones, while ceramides nourish, creating a smooth, optimal canvas for make-up application. Meant to be applied all over the eye area (including the lid), Physical Eye UV Defense has been tested post-injectable and proven 100% safe on even the most sensitive, traumatized skin.
