Protect your skin with this Water Proof Ultra-Light Sunscreen! This formulation is light, non greasy and water proof. It has broad spectrum UV protection.

They allow for new UV filter combinations and have broad UV spectrum protection along with a smooth non-greasy feel on the skin. AvoCap prevent Avobenzone crystallization.
