Keys anti-aging daytime moisturizer with SPF 30+ Broad Spectrum UVA-UVB Protection is hydrating and gives skin a dewy glow. Plus it's mild, simple ingredients make it great for people with extremely sensitive skin!
This SPF daily moisturizer will go on completely invisible making it a great product for everyday wear to the office, patio parties, doing errands and more when you need to look your best. The zinc used in this recipe is a nanoparticle zinc, but not to worry! Nanoparticle minerals have actually been proven extremely safe in multiple scientific studies when used on intact skin. (no abrasions or cuts) That means that on a daily basis most people can safely use and benefit from an invisible zinc sunscreen, as the particles do not migrate further than the top 4 to 5 layers of already dead, dehydrated cells in the Stratum corneum. That means they never make it into live tissues or migrate into the bloodstream as has been the worry with nanoparticles.
Solar Rx uses simple natural whole ingredients to carry the zinc oxide which provides blocking of UVA, UVB and UVC radiation to prevent skin cancer and premature aging.
Keys Solar Rx is featured on the Environmental Working Group Skin Deep Report as one the safest moisturizer with UVA/UVB protection on the market. Key Solar Rx is featured as the most effective non-waterproof category sunblock for UVA and UVB in the Consumer Reports July 2007 issue. It is rare to find a product that is both safe to use and effective.
Keys Solar Rx carries a UVB (UV Burning) rating of SPF 30+ and a UVA (UV Aging) of four stars using the EU rating system. It is important to note that 90% of all visible skin aging comes from UVA. Be very careful of sunscreens with high SPF numbers that do not rate their UVA protection. High SPF rated chemical sunscreens will prevent burning, but often do little to provide UVA.
This product contains more glycerin as part of its base than many skincare products, which in some humid climates may create a slight moist feeling on the skin. Glycerin is a humectant and will attract moisture from the air to your skin. In general this is a good thing as it keeps your skin hydrated all day, however given that our local weather tends to get quite steamy in July and August we have found that some midwestern residents do notice the feel of the product more when local humidity is highest. In dry climates such as Wyoming where Keys is based this humectant aspect is a huge benefit to skin, as it will help protect skin from dehydration.
