Product Details

Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 is a weightless fluid that combines 100% mineral filters with translucent color spheres for effective broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection and an even, radiant finish. This high protection zinc oxide sunscreen also contains artemia salina, a plankton extract known to increase skin’s resistance to UV- and heat-induced stress.

  • Sheer, tinted sunscreen adapts to most skin tones without a white cast
  • Water resistant for up to 40 minutes
  • Boosts radiance for a more even, luminous complexion
  • Helps boost skin’s natural defenses to environmental stress
  • Paraben-free and fragrance-free; non-comedogenic
  • Ideal for all skin types, even very sensitive skin

How To Use

Shake well before use. Apply sunscreen liberally to the face, neck, and chest 15 minutes before sun exposure and before applying makeup. Reapply sunscreen after 40 minutes of swimming, sweating, immediately after towel drying, and at least every two hours. For children under six months of age, consult a physician before use.

Sun Protection Measures: Spending time in the sun increases your risk of skin cancer and early skin aging. To decrease this risk, regularly use a sunscreen with a Broad-Spectrum SPF value of 15 or higher and other sun protection measures including:
- Limit time in the sun, from 10 am - 2 pm
- Wear long-sleeved shirts, pants, hats, and sunglasses
- For children under six months of age, consult a physician before use

  • Science & Proof

  • Science

    This breathable, tinted sunscreen is formulated with transparent titanium oxide and zinc oxide (Z-Cote?), the only mineral UV filter shown to protect against the full UVA/UVB spectrum along with translucent color spheres and artemia salina to impart powerful UV protection with a natural radiance. A “shake then apply” dispersal technology helps ensure even distribution of sunscreen ingredients.

Key Ingredients

  • 5% Zinc oxide (Z-Cote?)
  • 6% Titanium dioxide
  • Artemia salina
  • Translucent color spheres

This microfine zinc oxide is a mineral filter that reflects sun rays to provide broad spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays. The particle size and distribution characteristics spread evenly and provide a non-whitening effect on skin.

Physician Insight

Physician image

I love Physical Fusion because it is so easy to apply and does not clog up the skin or feel and look too heavy. The tint also gives it a nice smoothing effect on the skin. It is so easy to apply, and so effective in protecting the skin from sun damage, that I also use it daily on my three children.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Review of tinted sunscreen I purchased this about a month ago looking for a tinted sunscreen for the face that would also add a glow to my complexion. I do like this product however, it is more watery than I expected. I had used another product by Dermstore (now discontinued) that was thicker and creamier and I prefer that consistency. I would likely purchase this product again if I can not find something I like better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This sunscreen feels good on and absorbs well into your skin unlike a lot of sunscreens for your face which leave a white chalky look. This has a slight tint which the company claims will work on any skin color - I’m not sure about that but it works well with my fair skin. You can even use it under foundation. The only problem I have with this product is it tends to run into my eyes when it’s hot out. I think I’ll probably use it more in the Spring and Fall and stick with Dermalogica in the summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zinc oxide mineral sun screen I just started using the physical defense 50 sunscreen. I have sensitive skin, and I need a recommendation as to what to use to remove the sunscreen. My Dermatologist tells me to wash my face with cephaphil .......I wash a few times ...still some on. I have Roseaca so no toners..do you have a product you recommend?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible! I am a fair skinned redhead and constantly on the hunt for the best mineral sunscreen. I gave this a try after seeing a friend use it who is also fair and it is love!! It’s very lightweight and silky and blends very well. I was very concerned about the tint at first because many still show up on my skin or oxidize orange and no one wants to look like a Cheeto puff! I have tried nearly all high end and most drugstore mineral sunscreens and so far this beats them all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect 2-in-1 sunscreen & skin tint I've been looking for my holy grail sunscreen for a very long time; I am a fan of physical sunscreens as they are better for the environment and my body but many of them can be chalky or unpleasant on the skin, especially for all-day wear. This sunscreen feels very nice on the skin and the tint provides nice everyday coverage for my light-medium skin. I hope they never discontinue this wonderful product!
