How does it work?

While both mineral and chemical sunscreens protect your skin from the sun’s powerful rays, the way all-mineral protection works is much different.  Mineral formulations use natural compounds like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to block the sun from your skin, whereas chemical sunscreens change UV rays into heat, which is then absorbed and released by your skin.  A simple way to understand how mineral sunscreen works is to imagine the sun’s harmful rays ‘reflected’ upon contact with the top dermal layers of the skin.

Shield yourself from the elements with the 3 all-mineral products.  They are designed to protect you from environmental stressors, including pollution, blue light and the sun.  Layer them together for comprehensive protection or wear them individually with other products from your skin care routine.  Mix and match with the rest of your Eminence favorites.  

Lilikoi Mineral Defense Moisturizer SPF 33 is a light weight moisturizer that is easy to apply.  It is loaded with antioxidants to shield your skin from the effects of free radicals and pollution.  This moisturizer is suitable for all skin types and finishes without any white cast, leaving the appearance of fresh, natural skin.  The key ingredients are zinc oxide, titanium dioxide (both minerals block UV rays to protect skin from sunburning), lilikoi seed oil (vitamin C A, riboflavin, and niacin the antioxidants that help with signs of aging), satsuma mandarin peel extract (protects against drying and minimizes the look of hypersensitivity), and larch tree (moisturizes and prevents drying).  The results leave your skin hydrated and protected from the sun and indoor and outdoor pollution.

Lilikoi Light Defense Face Primer SPF 23 is a light weight primer.  It defends your skin from blue light and the sun.  Layer the primer after your moisturizer or use it as a sun protective base before you apply foundation or tinted moisturizer.  Subtle illuminating properties give the skin a healthy, ‘lit-from-within’ effect, resulting in the appearance of a glowing, radiant complexion.  The key ingredients are zinc oxide, titanium dioxide (both minerals block UV rays to protect skin from sunburning), lilikoi seed oil (Vitamin C, A, riboflavin, and niacin the antioxidants that help the signs of aging), cocoa seed extract (helps to prevent the breakdown of collagen and elastin resulting from blue-light exposure (digital stress).  The result is a perfect addition to sun and blue light protection.

Lilikoi Mineral Defense Sport Sunscreen SPF 30 is a water resistant sport sunscreen for the face and body.  It will last up to 40 minutes in the water.  This provides sun protection during activities like swimming and high performance sports where perspiration can impact standard sunscreen activity.  For best results reapply after 40 minutes of swimming or sweating.  The key ingredients zinc oxide (block UV rays to protect skin from sunburning), lilikoi seed oil (Vitamin C, A, riboflavin, and niacin the antioxidants that help the signs of aging), raspberry seed oil (UVA + UVB sun protection, vitamin E protects from aging, essential fatty acids that reduce water loss), aloe vera (antibacterial, increases collagen production).
