SuperGoop Unseen Sunscreen
Product claims from Supergoop
Our 100% invisible, 100% game-changing makeup-gripping primer with SPF 40. This award-winning formula is also weightless and scentless, and it has a slightly glowy effect that allows you to create any type of (makeup or no-makeup) look. It also contains clean, skin-soothing ingredients like red algae, which helps protect your skin from the blue light that's emitted by your phone and computer.
Unseen Sunscreen is formulated without parabeans, synthetic fragrance, or oxybenzone.
It was important for me to find a sunscreen that was “safe” for my skin without making me look ashy. I was somewhat concerned about this product because it does contain Avobenzone. Avobenzone is one of the chemicals found in sunscreen known to be systemically absorbed. If you’re wondering why any of this matters just last month, a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that certain chemical sunscreen ingredients may be absorbed through skin at higher levels than previously thought. Most specifically oxybenzone. This of course alerted the agency (FDA) to ask the industry for more data and safety testing. Currently (2019) Avobenzone is one of the UV filters with lower toxicity concerns. The agency doesn’t have enough data. We do know that Avobenzone can cause high rates of skin allergies. I’m on alert and will reading all the data as we learn more about the medical implications to absorption of sunscreen ingredients.
So far I’m impressed with this SPF 40, sweat resistant sunscreen that is completely clear! There’s absolutely no white cast left on my skin at all! What’s even better is this sunscreen can be worn alone or with makeup. It doubles as a makeup primer too.
