What It Is

A lightweight broad spectrum SPF 15 moisturizer to safeguard skin.

What It Does

Provides perfect protection from the casual day-in, day-out UVA and UVB rays that can age skin over time. A portable powerhouse that moisturizes, smoothes and safeguards skin everyday – with no greasy after-feel, and no mid-day meltdown.

How to Use It

  • Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure

    • Limit time in the sun, especially from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
    • Wear long-sleeve shirts, pants, hats, and sunglasses

Broad spectrum sunscreens protect skin from both UVA and UVB rays. UVB rays are responsible for sunburns. UVA rays can penetrate deeper into the skin, causing premature aging. Both UVB and UVA rays can cause skin cancer.

A sunscreen’s SPF number indicates its amount of protection from UVB rays. By choosing a broad spectrum sunscreen, you’ll know you are protecting your skin from the risk of early skin aging and skin cancer.

I was very disappointed when I received this "new and improved" product. The quality, texture, and quantity are much poorer than the previous product in the glass jar with the pump. You spent all these years developing a loyal following to toss it away. What were you thinking? I've been sitting here for 15 min pondering whether to buy this again and just can't bring myself to do it, so had to write my first review ever. Go back, please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love this product because it is not heavy or greasy. I feel confident putting it on my face as well as the rest of my body to help protect it against UV rays. I have tried many different skin care products, but I have always come back to Bioelements and now I am not going anywhere ever again!!

Really disappointed that the packaging and formula have changed. Loved the pump for more precise dispensing as well as the consistency of the "old" product. I just finished my first - and likely my last - tube of the new, which is way less product for more dollars per ounce in a janky tube and is slimy-feeling. I've moved on to try other products - hopefully I'll find something I like as much. Sad as I used this religiously, daily, year-round for upwards of 5 years. Bioelements has lost this customer. Onward and upward...

Hi S. Jones,
I'm sorry you are disappointed with the current packaging of our Sun Diffusing Protector.

I would like to talk to you personally about both sunscreens that you were using. I need to find out more information about both sunscreens that you have. When would it be convenient for me to call you? Please email me your contact information at teresa@bioelements.com, and I'll call you at your convenience.

I have acne problem and I could not use any lotions on my skin due their oiliness or clogging pores. I was recommended this product before putting on acne treatment and I did so. My skin is now protected from sun and not getting dried up
