Does Invisible Physical Defense SPF 30 really blend to invisible on all skin tones? Why does it look white
when it comes out of the tube?
Yes, this product blends to invisible on all skin tones, even darker ones. It comes out white because of the Zinc Oxide in the formula, but the white appearance dissipates as you blend it onto the skin.
Why is this product SPF 30 and not a higher SPF?
For this product, we strived to provide the highest SPF possible while maintaining the best wearability. To provide a higher SPF, we had to compromise wearability, and we wanted this product to blend to invisible on all skin tones. Dermatologists typically recommend using a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, which blocks 97% of UVB rays. SPF 50 blocks 98% of UVB rays – so the difference in UV rays blocked is only about 1 percent. (No sunscreen blocks all UV rays.)
Is this product replacing any Dermalogica products?
Yes, this product is replacing Super Sensitive Shield SPF 30.
Which is more important: SPF number or frequency of application?
Application, by far! While SPF numbers matter, whether your client will wear a
sunscreen daily – and correctly – matters more.
How do I know which sunscreen is best for me? Chemical or physical? One with SPF 15, 30 or 50+?

Should I use this product even if I'm not regularly outdoors?
Yes! UVA rays are always present, even on rainy or cloudy days; and they can penetrate glass. Besides that, blue light is everywhere, which is why it is imperative for you to wear sunscreen daily and indoors.
Will this product look invisible and wear well under make-up?
Yes! With all sunscreens, please wait until your sunscreen feels “dry” before they apply make-up over it.
What is nanotechnology and does Dermalogica use it?
Nanotechnology uses nanoparticles to help improve the appearance of physical sunscreens. Nanoparticles are very small particles (less than 100 nanometers). Dermalogica does not use nanotechnology.
