BB creams (beauty benefit creams) are all the rage in Asia right now - and for good reason. They simplify your skin care routine by taking care of several steps with just one product. Suntegrity's BB Cream is sunscreen, moisturizer, light cover-up for complexion flaws, and antioxidant skin therapy (because it contains botanical antioxidants that may help fight free radical damage and soothe inflammation). Plus, it just plain looks and feels great on your skin.
Tricia, the owner of Suntegrity Sunscreens, lost her mother to melanoma. She developed her natural, mineral zinc oxide sunscreens "with a heartfelt mission and the help of an extremely knowledgeable formulator and chemist."

In addition to being a trustworthy, dermatologist-approved natural sunscreen, Suntegrity 5-in-1 Tinted Sunscreen is a totally green skin care product for people wanting the best natural skin care choices. It's made with red algae, non-nano zinc oxide for natural broad-spectrum sun protection of your skin, and certified organic: aloe vera, jojoba, sunflower, pomegranate, cucumber, and green tea.. It's been featured in the "Best Sunscreens" Category in the EWG's 2012 Sunscreen Guide and has an EWG rating of 2. Tricia's attention to detail extends to the fact that Suntegrity 5-in-1 BB Cream Sunscreen is packaged in a TSA-friendly size and has an airless pump. It's also cruelty free (PETA and Leaping Bunny certification).
It's not oil free though, which means that if you are acne prone you need to test it carefully on your skin.
Dr. Cynthia Bailey Wants You to Know These Important Facts about Sunscreen:
It's my opinion that zinc oxide is the best sunscreen ingredient for broad-spectrum UVA and UVB sun protection.
Zinc oxide, and its cousin titanium dioxide, are considered mineral sunscreens (and are also called physical sunscreens). When applied to your skin these mineral/physical sunscreens sit on top of your skin and bounce off the UV rays just like bouncing a ball off of a wall. They provide non-irritating, hypoallergenic broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection that you can trust. Nano technology made it possible for mineral sunscreen to be applied invisibly to your skin. New zinc oxide technology has made it possible for even non-nano zinc oxide products to rub almost invisibly onto your skin too.
Mineral sunscreens are the only sunscreens that I trust and recommend. That's because the other type of sunscreens, called chemical sun screens (and also confusingly also called "organic" sunscreens!), actually absorb into the top of your skin and block the sun rays with a chemical reaction that occurs within your skin itself. The reaction creates a little heat, which make you feel even hotter in the sun. More importantly, it breaks down the chemical sunscreen ingredients so that they aren't there to protect you anymore. Thus your skin steadily runs out of the chemical sunscreens when you're in the sun.
The mineral sunscreens, on the other hand, last longer on your skin because the UV rays don't break them down like this. They're also more stable in the sunscreen bottle than chemical sunscreens, which break down while they sit in the bottle waiting for you to buy them and use them.
Of the mineral sunscreen ingredients, I recommend only zinc oxide - and not titanium dioxide - because it rubs onto your skin better and gives better broad-spectrum protection.
Remember, harmful and aging UV sun rays come through most windows. You need to apply sunscreen to the all exposed areas of your skin every day, even if you don't plan to spend time outdoors. Applying a mineral zinc oxide sunscreen should be part of your daily skin care routine!
Creating perfect sun protection requires picking the right products for your skin type and activities.
Directions for use: Wash your skin and apply your therapeutic skin care products first. Then apply Suntegrity's 5-in-1 BB Cream. It's your moisturizer and sunscreen, and the tinting can even act as a light foundation or makeup primer. If you wear makeup, such as Dr. Bailey Mineral Makeup, you can apply it on top of your Suntegrity BB Cream.
