Why Skinstitut Sunscreen Is the Best Form of UV Protection

Find the best tips & tricks to maximise your skins potential!

Skinstitut, a brand founded by top cosmetic chemists to bring the public high-quality, affordable formulas, prides itself on staying on top of new skincare technology. There’s truly no better example of that pursuit than Skinstitut Age Defence SPF50+. Skinstitut made Aussie history as the first skincare brand to release an SPF 50 approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration. This coup cemented the company as the top trusted suncare brand in Australia. The highly effective, unique formula of Skinstitut Age Defence SPF50+ is suncare that does more than just protect against sun damage; the product contains only the best ingredients to deliver serious skin health benefits.

Sunscreen is always your No. 1 defence against ageing, as skin-supporting collagen and elastin are broken down by UV rays. But this luxe formula doesn’t stop there! Skinstitut Age Defence SPF 50+ includes Niacinamide, or Vitamin B3, to help reverse existing damage in skin that’s been overexposed to the sun. Skinstitut contains highly effective Tinosorb S and Tinosorb M, two broad-spectrum sunscreens that work together to protect skin from harmful UV light. This clever combo of compounds both absorbs and reflects the sun’s rays. Skin is fully protected inside and out, leaving you totally safe from sun damage during wear.

How does Skinstitut differ from other sunscreens?

As mentioned above, Skinstitut released the first SPF 50 to be approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), which identifies and differentiates sunscreens as either therapeutic sunscreens or cosmetic sunscreens. The TGA classifies Skinstitut’s Age Defence SPF 50+ as a therapeutic sunscreen due to its sole focus on protecting the skin. In comparison, a cosmetic sunscreen is defined as a product that, while containing SPF, offers benefits other than sun protection. When using Skinstitut Age Defence SPF50+, you can be confident in knowing you’re using a product whose only purpose is to keep your skin safe and free of sun damage.

How to use Skinstitut Age Defence SPF50+

  1. Cleanse skin with a gentle cleansing product, such as Skinstitut Gentle Cleanser.

  2. Apply any treatments or serums. The best daily ingredient to boost damage repair would be Vitamin C. Try mixing Skinstitut Vitamin C 100% powder with Skinstitut Even Blend Serum for an antioxidant boost that helps clear any dark spots or pigmentation.

  3. Apply Skinstitut Age Defence SPF50+ to entire face and neck.

  4. Wait 20 minutes for product to absorb before going out in the sun.

  5. Reapply as needed, particularly after coming in contact with water, or every 2 hours at the latest.

This product is suitable and recommended for all skin types. This is a particularly important product for those with sun sensitivity, at high risk for skin cancer, or using retinol or acids, the last of which can cause more severe sun sensitivity than normal during use. You really can’t go wrong when you protect your skin with Skinstitut Age Defence SPF50+.
