The UV Day Shield is an ultra-light gel with SPF 30 and high UVA protection. Enriched with niacinamide and antioxidants, it strengthens the skin barrier and protects from sunshine and other harmful environmental influences. Unlike other sunscreens, it’s neither greasy nor white which makes it perfect for oily,  acne-prone and sensitive skin, and it adapts to your skin colour so that you’ll never look like a ghost again. If that’s not enough to convince you to give this a try, then may we also add that, with the UV Day Shield, you’ll no longer need a day cream or vitamin C serum.

How to use

We recommend that you use our UV Day Shield on a daily basis no matter if you’re in or outside. Why? Because although harmful UVA rays cannot go through walls, they can certainly go through windows. So, unless you spend your days hiding under the covers – which we hope you don’t – applying strong UVA and UVB protection should be one of the very first things you do in the morning. This is how:

  1. Wash your hands, cleanse your face (preferably with our Smoothing cleanser 😊) and tap it dry.
  2. Give the UV Day Shield a good and heartfelt shake, squeeze the gel onto the back of your hand and then gently distribute it over your face (except your eyelids and lips), neck, décolleté and the back of your hands.
  3. Apply makeup if you so desire.

Confused by all the SPF, UVB and UVA? Let's help clear things up: The SPF factor refers to how much a product protects from UVB rays. However, it might be helpful to know that the difference between SPF 30 and SPF 50 is actually less than 1%, meaning that SPF 50 is only 1% stronger or “better” than SPF 30. UVB (B like burn) are the rays that cause sunburns. UVA (A like aging) are the rays responsible for aging your skin. Our UV Day Shield is free of any hormonal active ingredients such as homosalate or octocrylene, which means that it is coral reef friendly.

FAQ

What does SPF mean?

SPF stands for «Sun Protection Factor». In German so called LSF (Lichtschutzfaktor). The SPF refers only to the UVB (B like Burning) factor, not to the UVA (A like Aging) factor.

Is it suitable for skin with acne prone oily skin?

Sure, it is a super light gel. It is perfectly suitable for acne prone and sensitive skin.

Can I use the UV Day Shield also as a man?

Of course. Men love the sunscreen as it is super light, not greasy or sticky at all. But please do not use it on the upper eyes.

Can a teenager use the UV Day Shield?

It is super important that you already start as a teenager to use proper UVA protection, to avoid dark spots also the ones after the pimples. And of course, you want to start a proper anti-aging skincare regime early. This starts with washing your face properly with our wash foam and apply the UV Day Shield in the morning. More is not needed.

If I keep the UV Day Shield in a standing position, a funny fluid comes out? Is that normal?

Yes, don’t worry. It doesn’t go bad and it does not dissolve. You just need to shake it super well before every usage.

Does the sunscreen reduce your vitamin D production?

Yes, it does. But why do you want to get the vitamin D from the surface of your face (4% of your body area). Rather use your arms or my legs for the vitamin D production as each has a surface area of around 8%. This way you don't get pigmentations on your face.

What is the difference between SPF and LSF?

It's exactly the same. SPF is the English abbreviation (sun protection factor) for the German abbreviation LSF, i.e. sun protection factor.

Why is a higher SPF better than a lower one?

SPF (sun protection factor) is not a linear curve. So SPF 50 is not worse than SPF 100, it is a logarithmic curve so the UVB protection of SPF 50 and SPF100 is less than 1%, even the difference of SPF 30 and SPF 60 is only about 1%.

Is a day cream with sun protection factor (SPF/SPF )15 sufficient if I only go out into the fresh air for half an hour at lunchtime?

Right, in order not to get sunburn (i.e. to keep UVB out), wrong, if you want to prevent wrinkles. Because SPF or SPF factors refer only to UVB. Only recently have regulations come out in the EU and Switzerland that regulate the protection of UVA light in a "sunscreen" cream. Therefore, please pay attention to whether there is a UVA filter label on the packaging. Only then can you be sure that you are also protected against UVA, which is harmful for aging, not only outside but also in your own home. That's why our UV Day Shield protects from both UVB and UVA.

My makeup has an SPF of 15, is that enough?

No, you would have to apply 2mg per cm2 of make-up to achieve an SPF 15. However, this then has nothing to do with aesthetic make-up. In addition, there is still no UVA "A" (aging) protection integrated.

Is the UV Day Shield comedogenic?

No, it is super light and perfectly suitable for people with acne prone and sensitive skin. Even men love it, as it is not greasy at all.

Has the UV Day shield been tested on animals?

No, we love our furry friends and none of our products will ever be testen on animals.

Does the sunscreen increase my pimples?

No it is a very light gel and helps you prevent your acne scars from getting darker and prevents your skin from discoloration even after pimples.

Can I use the sunscreen while having sensitive rosacea like skin?

The question is not can you, it is more: YES YOU SHOULD use it to protect your skin from further damage and reducing its redness’s. It also contains antioxidants to protect your skin from further damage from the outside.

When do I use the sunscreen ideally?

Every morning after you washed your face with our Fruit Acid Wash Foam. You apply a sufficient amount of the UV Day Shield and apply it on the entire face. Please do not use it on your eyelids. As it includes antioxidants already, you do not need an extra Vitamin C serum or any other day cream. Use the UV Day Shield 365 days per year. Even if you are not going outside.
