Day cream with SPF • A good SPF routine is your best defence against premature signs of ageing. Apply every morning after cleansing face and décolletage. Shake or massage tube before use. Squeeze a pea-sized amount on your hand and apply to face and neck and décolletage. It’s best to start with a small amount to see how much product is ideal for your skin type. Add more if it doesn’t feel heavy. Allow to settle for a minute or two before applying other products or make-up.
As an Everyday Face & Body UV-defence • Apply evenly 20 minutes before sun exposure, avoiding contact with eyes. Insist on sensitive areas (face, décolletage, top of shoulders, hands & feet, back of ears and neck). Re-apply every 2 hours or more after swimming, sweating or towelling. Avoid sun exposure between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. wear protective clothing and a hat. Use sun protection daily and all-year-round, even on cloudy days.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why is zinc oxide the best UV filter?
We use zinc oxide as our only active ingredient, and here is why:
+ It is the only reef-safe UV filter available.
+ Zinc oxide provides excellent broad-spectrum protection and has several advantages over synthetic actives. Zinc particles sit on top of your skin and act as a reflective barrier (exactly like a mirror) to block both UVAs & UVBs from penetrating your skin and causing damage and ageing.
+ It is the only FDA* and TGA** approved broad-spectrum sun protection ingredient, and unlike any other active ingredient, its concentration in a product has no limitation. It is also the EWG (Environmental Working Group) nº1 ingredient for sun protection.
+ Zinc oxide is also effective for healing the skin. It can be used to heal wounds, reduce the tenderness associated with sunburns and soften chapped skin. It is sometimes used as an acne treatment - it is believed to reduce the appearance of blemishes and reduce skin irritation and inflammation, reducing the number and severity of acne breakouts.

What does reef-safe mean?
Many sunscreens contain ingredients that wash off our skins (or down the drain) to harm coral reefs, even at very small concentrations. Using a "reef safe sunscreen" means that no ingredients in that product will cause detrimental effects to marine life. That includes coral reefs but also marine mammals, turtles, fish and a variety of marine species. Remember that certain brands falsely claim to be "Reef-Safe" but actually contain chemicals harmful to ocean life, so always check the label for these toxic ingredients:

Are P4O sunscreens safe for kids, or while pregnant/nursing?
Unlike chemical-based sunscreens, P4O and other mineral sunscreens are safe to use on children under 2 years old and while pregnant or nursing. Our products are designed for all skins, even the most sensitive. At P4O, we believe all skins deserve the best mineral sun protection. We use natural and organic ingredients and exclude all nasties such hormone disruptive ingredients. We include ceramides such as Shea Butter and natural waxes for water resistance, so our sunscreens don't run or sting the eyes. However, we do recommend keeping new-borns (<6 months old) out of the sun or to consult your doctor. Also keep in mind that P4O sunscreens contains essential oils.
