Mary Kay® Suncare SPF 50 Sunscreen is a must-have weapon in the fight against premature skin aging. Fact: two-thirds of the sun exposure people experience during their lifetime is incidental (less than one cumulative hour of sun exposure during the day, like driving a car, walking to and from your office to your car, etc.)
Warnings: For external use only, not to be swallowed. Discontinue use if irritation or rash develops. For use on children under six months of age, consult your doctor. Avoid contact with eyes. Keep out of reach of children.
Sunlight contains damaging ultraviolet B and A rays. Energetic UVB rays are typically associated with sunburn; UVA rays are less energetic but penetrate more deeply into the skin and can cause sunlight-induced premature skin aging, wrinkling and age spots. Both UVB and UVA rays damage skin and can lead to skin cancer – even on cloudy days! Sunscreens absorb, reflect or scatter this UV light. Inorganic or "physical" sunscreens form a film that reflects or scatters UV light before it penetrates the skin. Organic or "chemical" sunscreens absorb UV rays before they can cause damage. Examples include avobenzone and oxybenzone, which protect against both UVB and UVA rays. A good sunscreen product should be "broad-spectrum" – containing ingredients that protect against both UVB and UVA rays. All Mary Kay® sunscreen products provide this broad-spectrum protection in either a physical or chemical form or a combination of both. Mary Kay® Suncare SPF 50 Sunscreen, enriched with antioxidant vitamins and free-radical scavengers, helps protect skin from the damaging effects of UVA and UVB rays.
