We all know that antioxidants are good for the skin by helping to prevent free radical damage, so using skincare, and sun care, products containing Vitamins C and E, green tea, resveratrol, coffee berry, soy, and the like just makes sense. In fact, studies show that antioxidants in combination with broad-spectrum sunscreen protect against cell damage better than antioxidants or sunscreen alone.
One group of antioxidants we are particularly fond of is colorless carotenoids. These are two types of algae sourced from the Red Sea. What makes them special is that unlike most antioxidants, colorless carotenoids do not “die” after absorbing UV light; in fact, they have an endless capacity to absorb. This makes them perfect for use in facial sunscreens.
Find colorless carotenoids (called dunaliella salina extract on the ingredient list) in Rodan + Fields® ANTI-AGE Triple Defense Treatment SPF 30, REVERSE Environmental Shield SPF 55, and ESSENTIALS Lip ShieldSPF 25.
