Mary Kay® SPF 30 Sunscreen*

Mary Kay® SPF 30 Sunscreen is a must-have weapon in the fight against premature ageing. 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 the office to your car, etc.). Skin cancer is the No. 1 most common cancer, but fortunately, it is highly preventable. Scientific studies have determined that daily use of sunscreens can reduce your chances of developing some forms of skin cancer.

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 the office to your car, etc.).

Skin cancer is the No. 1 most common cancer, but fortunately, it is highly preventable. Scientific studies have determined that daily use of sunscreens can reduce your chances of developing some forms of skin cancer.

Application Tips

Apply liberally at least 15 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply every one to three hours, especially after swimming, vigorous activities or excessive sweating. 

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.

Key Ingredients

  • Vitamin A Palmitate improves the appearance of the skin.
  • Vitamin C Palmitate and Vitamin E Palmitate help protect skin from the effects of free radicals generated by the environment.
  • Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract helps protect the skin from the effects of free radicals generated by the environment and is known for its calming and soothing properties.
  • Homosalate (10% W/W), Octinoxate (7.5% W/W), Octisalate (5% W/W), O xybenzone (4% W/W) and Avobenzone (2% W/W) are active sunscreen ingredients determined by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to be both safe and effective, within certain concentrations, in protecting the skin from ultraviolet light.  

How It Works

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 ageing, 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. These sunscreens include zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. 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® SPF 30 Sunscreen, enriched with antioxidant vitamins and free-radical scavengers, helps protect skin from the damaging effects of UVA and UVB rays.
