Did you know that applying a sunscreen each day is the single most important step in your skincare routine? Protect your skin each day with Dermalogica Invisible Physical Defense SPF30.

There are two main types of sunscreen: physical and chemical. Both have their own unique benefits, and both will help protect skin from UV rays.





The benefits of using Dermalogica Invisible Physical Defense physical sunscreen

  • It helps to protect against UVA and UVB rays
  • Protects your skin as soon as it’s applied! there's no need to wait before exposing skin to sunlight.
  • Is usually comfortable for all skin types and conditions, particularly sensitive skin.

Physical, or mineral sunscreens, sit on top of skin. Most physical sunscreens can leave a white or tinted residue on the skin, but newer formulas like the Dermalogica Invisible Physical Defense SPF 30 have been made to be ultra-sheer to help prevent that white, chalky effect. To identify this type of sunscreen, look for the words like "mineral," or "physical," as well as active ingredients like Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide.



The benefits of using a chemical sunscreen


  • It helps to protect against UVA and UVB rays.
  • It needs time to absorb! Usually 15 to 30 minutes before sun exposure.
  • Is usually comfortable for most skin types and conditions.
  • Tends to be more water and sweat resistant than a physical sunscreen.

Chemical sunscreens use ingredients that absorb into skin and transform UV rays into heat. This type of sunscreen tends to be popular because it feels light and looks unnoticeable.


The Dermalogica Invisible Physical Defence is a physical sunscreen and a complete game changer as far as they go. It blended really well into my skin and felt light, not sticky! I was able to apply my usual makeup afterwards with no problem.

This formula not only provides UVA/UVB protection, it also protects your skin against Blue Light exposure. All the more reason to wear your sunscreen each and every day, even if you are not outside in direct sunlight.
