Most people would say it looks dull, dry, and even wrinkly. Well, there has been evidence that supports these answers. And undeniably, it was all linked to sun damage due to overexposure.

It is solid evidence that sunscreen is not just something that you have to apply when going to the beach. It's a shield that you need every day to fight skin cancer, sun damage, and even aging.
UV (ultraviolet) radiation from sunlight, specifically UVA, can harm your skin cells by penetrating them deeply, damaging the collagen fibers and increases production of abnormal elastin.
As the elastic fibers are cleaved by UV Radiation, it results into a disorganized structure leading to premature aging. The damage is accumulated over time and result in a number of skin aging issues such as,
- Deeper Wrinkles
- Hyperpigmentation/Age Spots
- Sagging Skin
- Uneven Texture
Yet I have to admit, for the past years, it was a struggle for me to include sunscreen in my daily routine. As someone who suffered from Rosacea, my skin was very picky and almost all of the sunscreens I used ended up with the worst breakouts.
Geared with my enormous mushroom-like hat, long sleeves, and big glasses, I felt secured that I could skip the sunscreen. However, as I became older I grew conscious noticing how rapidly my skin started to age.
Luckily, I did find a good brand. But after 4 years of observation, it appears that typical sunscreen alone can't fight aging and reverse the lifetime damage. I was also scared about the potential side effects knowing it wasn't Toxic-Free® certified nor do I know how the ingredients were sourced.
But we can't just hide away from the sun forever either. So what can we do to protect our skin from damage and rapid aging?
Invest in a sunscreen that does it all. Aside from Toxic-Free® Protection, your Sunscreen is MISSING an extraordinary anti-aging ingredient that changed the life of a group of volunteers in their 50s to 60s.
Peptides are amino acids that can pass through the skin's protective layer and help your body produce collagen naturally from the inside out. Your body needs peptides to make collagen and elastin, which keep skin firm and youthful.
Aside from sun protection, you can experience the following benefits:
- Enhances and maintains the collagen level and elastin fibers for firmer and lifted skin
- Assists in improving skin moisture
- Helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles
- Aids in reducing collagen loss as skin ages
And that's not all, we have included in 5 more anti-aging hero ingredients in our TOXIC-FREE® Mineral Tinted SPF 25 for maximum prevention and protection. Your perfect all-in-one solution for anti-aging, amazing for the lazy days.
Ever since it's release this April 2023, it has been well loved by people of all skin types and colors. I am beyond grateful for the contribution of everyone in making this sunscreen surpass the expectations!
