SPF’s Heavy Hitters:  Avobenzone, Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, and SHIELDrf (a Rodan + Fields® exclusive)

“While everyone needs broad spectrum coverage from head to toe, when it comes to which sunscreen to choose, one size doesn’t fit all. If skin is sensitive or acne-prone, look for products that contain physical sunscreens such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. These mineral-based ingredients are effective at blocking aging UVA and UVB rays, but won’t exacerbate acne or sensitive skin. They’re also great for kids’ tender skin and children and adults that experience a stinging sensation with chemical-based products.

If you don’t have sensitive skin or acne, avobenzone is our UVA and UVB blocker of choice; however, avobenzone alone can be unstable in formulations and degrade quickly when exposed to sunlight. To maximize its effectiveness, Rodan + Fields SHIELDrf technology uses free radical-fighting colorless carotenoids to stabilize avobenzone, making it more effective at providing protection when exposed to sunlight.

Find avonezone and SHIELDrf sunscreen technology in Rodan + Fields ANTI-AGE Triple Defense Treatment SPF 30, REVERSE Broad Spectrum SF 50+ Sunscreen, ANTI-AGE Age Shield Hand Balm SPF 30, and ESSENTIALS Lip Shield SPF 25. Find zinc oxide and titanium dioxide in Rodan + Fields SOOTHE Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30, UNBLEMISH Oil Control Lotion SPF 20, and ENHANCEMENTS Mineral Peptides SPF 20.”DermRF
