    • A SPF 25 gel sunscreen that uses plant-based solvents and best-in-class UVA and UVB filters (Tinosorb® S and Uvinul® A Plus) to provide broad-spectrum protection without sensitivity. Suitable for most skin types. Can be used on face and body.
    • Hydroxystearic acid reduces the effects of UVB stress and minimises the appearance of conspicuous pores and facial spots.
    • Sunfragma is formulated to soften at around 20°C and melt at around 30°C (just below body temperature) so it glides on easily and with minimal rubbing. It creates an initial sheen and dries within 1 or 2 minutes. We recommend using half a teaspoon for your face to meet the ISO 24444 certification.
    • At Facetheory, we don't integrate SPF into our moisturisers because most people do not wish to reapply moisturiser during the day. Given that sun protection should be reapplied throughout the course of the day, we provide it as a separate product.
    • Sunfragma won't leave any white chalkiness as mineral creams do. Corn starch helps to provide a dry finish.
    • Sunfragma is alcohol-free, so it won't sting when applied. Perfect for sensitive skin.
    • Free of parabens, silicones, PEGs, SLS, SLES, and mineral oils. Vegan and cruelty-free. Made in the UK.

    Sunfragma SPF 25 Melting Balm glides on without any stinging or chalkiness and is perfectly kind to skin. Layer it under your favourite Facetheory moisturiser. With best in class Tinosorb® S and Uvinul® A Plus sun filters. UVB SPF rating of 25 and 5-star UVA.
