BlockOut DST (for darker skin tones)Tinted Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 50
Hyperpigmentation is skin condition caused by, among other skin injuries, sun damage. Asian, Mediterranean and African skin tones are, in fact, more prone to hyperpigmentation caused by excessive sun exposure. Research has shown that melanocytes (cells that produce the pigment, melanin) become hyperactive when exposed to high levels of UV rays. As excessive exposure can cause dark uneven patches on the skin, we formulated our tinted BlockOut DST with an SPF of 50 to block both harmful UVA and UVB rays.
BlockOut is water Resistant (40 minutes), hypoallergenic. paraben, gluten, and phthalate free.
