Sun protection is afforded with a fully 25% Zinc Oxide content, forming a physical sun-block. Additionally, the formulation has a UVA Protection Factor of 20!

Excellent for normal to mature or dry skin. Instructions for use: Use as the last step in your skincare routine, applied to clean, dry skin. The formulation will give some hydration to the skin on its own, but ideally should be paired, if necessary, with a full hydration routine. For test application, apply to the back of the hand and warm the product with the fingers. Apply to quadrants of the face, blending as you proceed. The product should blend to sheer on most skin types. If it is used on Fitzpatrick Skin Types 1-2 and shows too dark, consider using less product.

SPF and Sunscreen Myths

We'll examine types of Ultra-Violet (UV) rays from the sun, sunscreens, and clarify the meaning behind SPF factors in sunscreens.

UVA vs UVB
The sun's rays that are most damaging to our skin are called ultraviolet (UV) rays - of which there are two types, UVB and UVA.
UVB
Responsible for sunburn.
Major factor in skin cancer including deadly Melanoma.
UVA
Penetrate more deeply into the skin.
Also play a role in skin cancer causation.
Play a greater role in premature skin aging and wrinkle formation (photoaging).
Sunscreens:
Incredibly, there are approximately 500 times more UVA rays in sunlight than there are are UVB rays. So it's obviously very important to protect your skin from the myriad damaging UVA rays. Time-honored chemical sunscreens have been effective in blocking UVB rays, but for UVA rays, not so much. Today, sunscreens are available containing zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide provide a physical barrier to the sun's rays. For a sunscreen to protect against both UVB and UVA rays, the sunscreen label MUST provide "broad-spectrum" protection and MUST say so on the label. Broad-spectrum protection sunscreens containing antioxidants provide an additional layer of protection.

SPF, FDA, and Labeling
The only way to get 100% protection from the ultraviolet rays of the sun is to stay inside! But who wants to stay inside? But all is not lost! You can get a high level of protection by using a good sunscreen. Start by reading the labels of the sunscreens you buy, and in addition to making sure the sunscreen is a broad spectrum sunscreen, consider the SPF factor.

In the main, SPF ratings deal only with UVB rays. SPF 15 covers 93% of UVB rays, while and SPF 30 covers 97% of UVB rays - a meaningful difference. SPF 50, however, only gives 1% more protection, covering 98% of UVB rays. Protection over SPF 50 is incremental at best and often only "imagined" by the manufacturer. Also, the FDA introduced new labeling requirements a few years ago in order to clear up a lot of confusion. The FDA requires labels to state whether re-application is required after 40 minutes or after 80 minutes.

To Sum Up
  1. Broad Spectrum stated on the label
  2. Contains titanium dioxide and/or zinc oxide
  3. In addition contains antioxidants
  4. At least SPF 30

About Cyberderm

CyberDERM Laboratories
Dr. Denis Dudley
CyberDERM was created by two husband-and-wife physicians, with a chemist and a daughter, created products they could use within their practice.  CyberDERM was founded when a patient asked Dr. Denis Dudley, a high-risk OB/GYN and endocrinologist, whether a specific sunscreen was safe to use during her pregnancy.  Dr. Dudley had not previously thought about product safety in that way and as a result, he consulted a dermatologist - his wife Dr. Sharyn Laughlin.  Similarly she had also never scrutinized a sunscreen from that perspective.  Together, they began to delve into the world of skincare product formulations.  Their research, in partnership with their chemist, Tom Heinar, led them to develop and run prototype trials over a fifteen year period.  The results of their efforts were were first bottled in 2008 when their daughter Sara Dudley joined their team.

Dr. Sharyn Laughlin
The products they created feature the best and latest advances in the science of formulations, and they're backed by the credibility of medical professionals.  Every product created, is created with the premise of being safe, aesthetically elegant, and most importantly, effective.  For simple needs like cleansing and hydrating, they are curated without feeling minimalistic.  Some products have only 4 ingredients but they are exceptional ingredients and in high concentrations.  Other products like original Sun Whips™ and the anti-aging or de-pigmenting creams explore how active ingredients can work in synergistic combination to tackle complicated issues.  CyberDERM products are created with intention, and without compromise.  The full line aims to support your every-day skincare routine while maintaining its original ethos of being both safe and effective.
