According to the company, this formula protects against UV damage and hydrates the skin thanks to a skin-supporting mix of blue sea kale, hemp seed, moringa, vitamin C and restorative proteins for a dewy finish.

Calming maritime botanicals are said to reduce redness and sunburn while the company’s proprietary algae blend shields skin from blue light, pollution and photoaging.

Key ingredients include:

  • Zinc: The GlowDefense technology uses sheer, non-nano zinc oxide for broad-spectrum sun protection that blends in the skin without leaving a white residue.
  • Blue Sea Kale: This vitamin C-rich marine plant helps to diminish photoaging, fine lines and free radicals thanks to antioxidants and its mineral profile. 
  • Raspberry: This antioxidant acts as a natural SPF and boosts environmental protection while moisturizing skin based on its high phytosterol content, which improves skin elasticity for a glossy dew. 
  • Sea Aster: Harvested from salty sea marshes in Northern Europe, this calming maritime botanical is reportedly filled with skin-strengthening nutrients that help reduce sensitivity and redness, including sunburns. 
  • Algae Blend: This ingredient stimulates natural hyaluronic acid synthesis and is loaded with phytonutrients and fatty acids to plump, firm and smooth skin, the company reports.
  • Moringa: Finally, this natural, with 90+ nutrients, 46 antioxidants and vitamins A, B, C, D and E, is said to impart moisture and a radiant glow.
