Why our moisturizers and creams do not contain SPF?
Creams and lotions containing SPF contain actives that are designed to remain on the surface, acting as mirrors to reflect and block sun rays. As a result, an oily protective layer blocks the pores and does not let the skin breathe and function at a normal, healthy state. It is therefore not recommended to use typical SPF actives in creams or lotions for they reduce a product’s efficacy and damage the skin rather than really helping.
By constantly using SPF products we are slowly reducing our skin capacity to handle rays of light and enjoy the goodness packed within them. Just take a quick look at nature around us. We are part of that nature as well. Trust your body. Trust creation. Exposure to the sun is not that harmful as we have been told.
At the same time, if you are going to be exposed to direct sun for long periods of times, we recommend using any SPF product on top of our Daily Hydration or other onsen products. This way you ensure that your skin is being treated while it is being protected from the sun.
Some info about hydration
Dry skin and oily skin are both the reflection of insufficient moisture. A good moisturizer should be used regularly after cleansing and before the skin dries out. The ideal moisturizer is lightweight, not oily, lasts the whole day or night, and provides protection from environmental damage while preventing moisture loss. Balanced moisture levels are vital for healthy skin.
Onsen Daily Hydration is the perfect answer for balanced moisture levels. It is natural, rich with a light and gentle texture. It is supported by our Micro Water Complex, which allows ultimate absorbance and prevents moisture loss in any weather conditions.
It leaves the skin soft, glowing and supple for hours while letting it breathe. In addition, it contains actives that work overtime in the innermost skin layers to renew and firm the skin and fight harmful free radicals.
