Solaveil is a range of mineral based sunscreen actives that provide broad spectrum protection from the sun's harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays.
UV protection in sunscreens and facial moisturisers is provided by either organic or inorganic filters.
Inorganic filters like Solaveil are mineral based insoluble particles, such as Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) and Zinc Oxide (ZnO), they scatter and absorb light, reflecting UV radiation away from the skin. This physical barrier, protects from UVA rays which cause the skin to age and UVB rays which cause the skin to burn. Inorganic filters are also photostable so they do not deteriorate when exposed to light, therefore offering assured, consistent protection when exposed to UV light. Organic UV filters are chemical-based alternatives and they form a thin, protective film on the surface of the skin, absorbing UV radiation before it penetrates the skin.
Solaveil is not an actual product itself; it is the active ingredient in a range of sunscreen and beauty products. To ensure you are receiving the great protection offered by Solaveil look out for the Solaveil symbol on pack. Additional benefits offered from Solaveil assured products include:
- Completely clear application, they do not leave white streaks or residue like other filters can
- They feel great! Solaveil products boast a luxurious skin feel, so they are a treat to apply
- They can protect against free radical damage to fight the signs of ageing, keeping you looking and feeling younger for longer
