Why Medik8 Physical Sunscreen?

Medik8 Physical Sunscreen is an advanced formula that uses 12% Zinc Oxide as its UVB and UVA filter. It doesn’t use any chemical sunscreen filters, making it suitable for regular use, even on sensitive skin.

Zinc Oxide is a mineral (inorganic) sunscreen filter that absorbs the sun’s radiation, as well as reflecting and scattering it away from the skin to give you the best possible protection.

This sunscreen uses no unnecessary ingredients to irritate or photosensitise the skin, such as essential oils or fragrance, making it a great choice for anyone with sensitive, rosacea, ageing or sun intolerant skin. It also suitable for oilier skin types as it’s been formulated to not clog pores.

Medik8 Physical Sunscreen is fortified with anti-pollution, anti-infrared and anti-glycation ingredients to provide additional protection against the signs of skin ageing. These provide further protection against premature skin ageing.

Green Tea, Grape Seed and Vitamin E scavenge free radicals and help protect the skin from UV and pollution damage. These antioxidants work synergistically with the Zinc Oxide. They strengthen the skin’s natural defences against UV and support the skin’s repair processes.

What you won’t find are ingredients the skin doesn’t need, such as essential oils, fragrance or questionable chemical filters.

Medik8 Physical Sunscreen Review

My skin is very picky and doesn’t always react well with skin care products but I found this to be very gentle on my skin, it does contain Zinc Oxide so it is very white in colour, but by simply rubbing it into the skin more it quickly disappears. The texture is sticky to touch before you apply, but once on and rubbed into the skin it’s completely dry touch and feels almost like you’re wearing nothing on your skin. I’ve been using the same sunscreen on my face for years but after trying this I think I might be ready to switch.
