It doesn't just take a bad burn to harm skin. Damage from overexposure to the sun's radiation is often not noticed immediately. The effects of ultraviolet (UV) rays often cause serious changes to the appearance and health of skin over time. Helping to reduce the long-term and even hidden consequences of sun exposure is the reason that CosMedix In Sun Products were created. They use formulas composed of carefully selected natural ingredients to help protect skin from UV radiation and repair damaged that has resulted from previous exposure.
To be most effective, CosMedix In Sun Products protect against a broad spectrum of solar radiation, including UVA and UVB wavelength bands; each type of radiation has different effects on the skin tissues, from surface reddening to deep penetration causing damage to the supporting collagen and elastin cells. The results of sun exposure can include hyperpigmentation (ranging from freckles to long-lasting dark splotchy areas), wrinkles, lines, rough and scaly skin and loss of firm tone. These effects can be reduced and even reversed with the scientifically formulated CosMedix In Sun Products.

Additional CosMedix Products Information
The ingredients used in CosMedix In Sun Products are natural, plant-derived, purified and corrected to be able to interact most effectively with skin tissues. Botanical extracts and oil and other plant-sourced ingredients are chosen for their natural strength. All of the products are free of artificial colors and preservatives, to prevent irritation and allergic reactions.
The broad spectrum UV protection provided by CosMedix Serious Protection SPF 28 is provided by both botanical extracts and the physical blocking properties of titanium oxide and zinc oxide. The non-irritating formula guards against both the surface-burning rays of UVB wavelengths and the deep-penetrating UVA rays that can damage the collagen and elastin cells. To keep the skin moisturized, a number of emollients including allantoin (derived from the comfrey plant, Symphytum officinale), Aloe barbadensis leaf juice and soybean oil are included. Caprylic/capric triglyceride, derived from coconut, is not only a moisturizer but also helps strengthen the moisture barrier in skin, to prevent loss of hydration. Honeysuckle flower and quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides) bark extracts are also included in the formula to guard against skin inflammation that sometimes occurs from sun exposure.
A pump spray-on sunscreen, CosMedix Reflect, uses a strong 15% solution of titanium dioxide, nature's own sunscreen. Added antioxidants and mineral oils provide protection and moisturizing benefits. The formula is non-greasy and non-irritating and feels light on the skin. It is easy to use and can be readily re-applied -- particularly on the hands and face -- when heat or exercise causes moisture or after washing or swimming.
