Sunfragma Melting Balm SPF 25

with 5* UVA - Broad Spectrum Sunscreen

Vegan ✔ 365 day guarantee ✔ Cruelty-free ✔ Paraben-free ✔

    • Sunfragma is an SPF 25 gel that uses plant-based solvents and best-in-class UVA and UVB filters (Tinosorb® S and Uvinul® A Plus) - taking an approach that maximises cosmetic elegance without using irritating ingredients.
    • Sunfragma plays nice - this product can be layered underneath existing creams or used on its own for SPF protection. Sunfragma can be applied to face and body.
    • Hydroxystearic acid (derived from castor oil) acts as an inhibitor against UVB stress and in-vivo studies have shown it to reduce conspicuous pores and facial spots.
    • Sunfragma is formulated to soften at around 20°C and melt at around 30°C (just below body temperature). This gives it an effortless glide and doesn't require any tedious rubbing-in. Apply a small amount - enough to create an initial "sheen" which will then dry within a minute or two. We recommend a gram for your face to meet the ISO 24444 certification.
    • We believe sunscreen is sunscreen - we don't integrate SPF into our daily moisturisers because evidence shows that people reapply moisturisers less often than they would a sunscreen. Sun protection should do just that and we provide it as a separate product so you can reapply regularly.
    • Zero whitening - Sunfragma won't leave a whitening sheen like mineral creams do while corn-starch helps to provide a dry finish.
    • Sunfragma is alcohol-free, making it great for sensitive skin - in fact it's great for anyone who doesn't like their skin to sting when applying sunscreen.
    • Vegan, paraben-free and definitely not tested on animals.

    Looking for SPF?  Layer this underneath a day cream with best in class Tinosorb® S and Uvinul® A Plus sun filters.  UVB SPF rating of 25 and 5 star UVA.

  • Apply 15 minutes before going into the sun. The average face needs between 1 and 1.2 grams of Sunfragma to provide good protection. This product is formulated for normal wear but do reapply if you sweat a lot, if you get wet, or if you heavily towel your face or body. Avoid contact with fabrics. We recommend you avoid the midday sun (between 11am and 3pm) - seek shade and cover up. Overexposure to the sun is a serious health threat.

Such a wonderful product. Feels too lovely on the skin to be a suncream.

Rosie Archard

Really smooth application. Doesn’t feel greasy or give me spots like normal sun cream.

Liz King

Love this product. Sinks into the skin really well and hasn't caused any breakouts.

Lorraine Croft

Its a bit greasy for the face but I actually use it for my arms and chest as a general moisteriser to protect from the sun. Glides on and sinks in after a while and makes your skin feel lovely and soft


A little greasy not sure how well it will travel as very soft. Seems to work as a sunscreen ok.

Only need a little to use on entire face and neck, creates a nice sheen that the skin absorbs. I usually put it on after moisturiser but before primer and the rest of my makeup, with a 10-15 minute wait between each step.

Jennifer Vennelle

This is a lovely product that moisturises my dry skin as well as protecting it from the sun.


I was a bit worried about this product after reading some of the reviews about it being greasy, but there was no need to worry as this is another superb product. It does sink into the skin after a couple of minutes and works really well with my make up. However, I do have dry skin.

The product has a nice creamy texture. At first it's a little greasy, a little goes a long way, and it didn't take long to absorb. It's great for anyone who hates caking on thick sunblock creams. it was easy to re-apply mid day if needed.

Amanda Harvey

I liked the Sunfragma product because it isn't thick like regular sunscreens. It's quite thin and goes nicely under makeup foundation. My skin is usually a bit dry, so it also felt quite hydrated with the sunscreen balm.

Elena Cacciapuoti

The best sunscreen ever used! No smell and no white residue. Feels really good on the skin

Gemma Hale

Works very well as a sunscreen and is light and doesn't leave streaks. Doesn't clog skin either. Would happily buy again.


Very nice sunscreen - need very little. May appear greasy at first but I found it absorbs very quickly. Will definitely buy again.

Lyndsey Allen

Speedy delivery and great service. I got 40% off. Bought the sun cream balm - it's great, silky smooth on the skin. Can't wit to test it out in the sun. Lovely packaged products and great value.


Unfortunately the balm is way to oily and leaves the complexion to shiny


This balm is great for everyday use on my face under make up. It doesn’t pill when applied over other skincare and doesn’t leave my face shiny or oily. I would suggest however leaving a few minutes for the balm to absorb before applying foundation for the best results

Joanne Thorne

As a melting balm this feels quite greasy but absorbs quickly and under moisturiser it gives a lovely natural sheen to your complexion. As someone who has fair, freckly skin it's a must have.

Carron Ellerton

First time used way too much and left with shiny face. Second attempt, sun warm. Applied before dressing. No marks on clothes and didn’t burn

joanne paterson

This stuff is lovely. You only need a tiny bit and it feels wonderful on your skin. Also definitely stops you getting sunburnt .


A little oily but otherwise a beautiful product, which I hope works! I've used it a few times on my face and neck and it seems to have protected me against sunburn, but I need a bit longer with it to fully know. It feels lovely, my skin feels soft after, and tinted moisturiser glides on afterwards. However, because there is then quite a sheen that looks oily I wonder if I need to leave it a fair amount of time before applying anything else. I'd like to know how long you advise leaving it before applying tinted moisturiser or foundation etc


Clara Wilding

Lovely product, not heavy at all. Doesn't cause my skin to break out like a lot of SPFs do.

mary stephenson

I love the texture maintains dewy fresh faced looked doesn’t irritate or feel heavy on my skin as sunscreen usually would. Use underneath my moisturiser daily. Great layer to protect during morning run.(post run photo!) Wouldn’t mind higher spf level for hot summer suns

Robyn Barker

I was looking for a sun protection to wear everyday under my usual face cream and make up. This will last forever as you only need a very small amount. The only down side is that it can your face a little greasy. It also hasn’t made my skin any worse.

Sasha Hamstead

I'm not sure about this product in the range. I want to love it, but there is no getting away from the fact it make your skin feel and look greasy. If i put on less of the product then I'm not able to cover the face, and if I try the thinnest film it never sets just a greasy face. So sorry, don't want to leave a bad review. On a positive note it doesn't sting the eyes or leave a white film. It's a difficult product to get right.

Yasmin Fryer

This glides beautifully on to the skin with no sticky residue. A little goes a long way! Definitely a great base!

Katherine Brown

I really like this product. It feels super moisturising without being too heavy for my oily, acne prone skin. It hasn’t broken me out (I’ve been using it for 2 weeks.) It’s great for everyday wear but I’ve yet to experience any sunny, hot days so don’t know how it’ll cope in the summer. If you apply it and leave 20 minutes before applying makeup, it sits under it well. As it’s a balm, you only need a tiny amount and it melts to spread really easily over your whole face and neck. I wish the SPF was a little higher (30) though.

Rosa Suárez

Very nice on the skin, and does not leave me white. Great to use on a daily basis. As it is 25 and not 50,i will need something higher for when the Spanish sun is hitting hard. The shine goes with a bit of powder, or just using less. I intend to keep using it.
