Skin Shield SPF 30
This high-performance broad spectrum mineral sunscreen contains targeted ingredient complexes that protect collagen, impart supercharged hydration, and help to improve skin tone and condition. Engineered with our proprietary Physiology Synchrony Unlock Method™, it’s so much more than just a sunscreen. Harnessing 9 innovative actives including UVA/UVB protecting Zinc Oxide, our signature 72-hour moisture-lock, and a powerful pink algae extract that helps to protect from free radicals and collagen degradation - it truly is a Skin Shield. Boosted absorption greatly reduces the white residue associated with mineral sunscreens, and its silky glide provides the perfect priming for makeup. This innovative formulation has been rigorously tested against international SPF standards.*
*Tested according to the AS/NZS standard 2604 which is based on the International Standards ISO 24443 & ISO 24444.

I gently warm Skin Shield SPF 30 by rubbing it between my fingers, before application. Warming the crème like this means that the product glides on better and does not leave a residual whiteness on the skin.
I apply SPF every day, even in winter, the sun's UVA and UVB rays can still cause skin damage even if it's an overcast day.
Clinical Testing and Ingredients
Emma Lewisham's Physiology Synchrony Unlock Method™ is our proprietary skin-first formulating philosophy, which blends up to 25 scientific ingredients that are selected for their proven effect on the skin. The true breakthrough happens when these ingredients work in symphony across multiple skin pathways to unlock transformational results.
Our formulations are fundamentally different. Uniquely developed by scientists and physiologists with over 100 years combined experience, our formulas are engineered with up to 25 meticulously chosen ingredients that are individually efficacious, but in combination amplify each other to provide three-dimnesional, next generation results.
The most powerful way to interact with the skin is naturally, therefore we only use natural ingredients, harnessing both bio-identical ingredients found within the skin as well as the specialised, scientifically proven natural plant extracts. These bio-active ingredients work in harmony with the skin to trigger powerful cellular responses that deliver unparalleled results.
While our ingredients are 100% natural, naturally derived and nature identical, we recommend doing a patch test or consulting your medical practitioner before using any new skincare product, particularly if you have sensitive skin or allergies.
Tested according to the AS/NZS standard 2604 which is based on the International Standards ISO 24443 & ISO 24444.
9 SYNERGISTIC ACTIVES
Powerful Protection Complex: Our specialised Zinc Oxide is a natural mineral pigment which helps to protect from harmful UVA and UVB rays without leaving white residue on your skin. This UV hero provides robust SPF30 protection that is validated by independent testing on every batch. This is paired with innovative Inula Helenium Extract to reduce damage from blue light and pollution, and pink algae to protect the skin's collagen inventory from UV-induced degradation.
Supercharged Hydration Complex: Next generation hydrating hero Saccharide Isomerate increases the skin’s own production of Hyaluronic Acid, while an advanced Hyaluronic Acid delivers moisture deeply into the skin. Specialised Ceramides enhance the skin barrier to protect and lock hydration, which is proven to persist for up to 72 hours to profoundly lift and smooth this area of delicate skin.
