For several years, we have wanted to offer our customers a mineral sunscreen mist that is everything a mineral sunscreen typically isn't: lightweight, sheer, and blendable. Formulating a mineral sunscreen spray that is all of the above presents its own unique set of challenges, but, thanks to Solstice Technology and our well-versed chemists, we have made the seemingly impossible possible.
Introducing our new SPF 50 Mineral Mist.
No white cast. No chalky residue. Ultra lightweight. Hyaluronic Acid-infused. Velvety-smooth texture. Seamless spreadability. 360° application. It's mineral sunscreen like it's never been done before. Solstice technology is at the forefront of this groundbreaking mineral mist. Because this technology works particularly well with mineral formulas, the end product is one that spreads effortlessly, has an ultra-lightweight, silky-smooth texture, dries quickly, and dispenses evenly.
UNDERSTANDING MINERAL SUNSCREENS
Before we dive into Solstice Technology, let's first grasp the basics of mineral sunscreens. Unlike their chemical counterparts, mineral sunscreens work by physically blocking and scattering UV rays away from the skin. They primarily consist of two active mineral ingredients—zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. These minerals form a protective barrier that sits on top of the skin, reflecting and absorbing UV radiation. Mineral sunscreens are known for their broad-spectrum protection, as they shield against both UVA and UVB rays, and are generally considered safe for all skin types.
THE ADVANCEMENT OF SOLSTICE TECHNOLOGY
Solstice Technology represents a significant breakthrough in the formulation of mineral sunscreens. Developed through extensive research and innovative techniques, this technology enhances the performance and user experience of mineral-based sun protection.
Enhanced Transparency: Traditionally, mineral sunscreens are infamous for the chalky white cast they leave behind on the skin. Solstice Technology tackles this challenge by utilizing advanced particle engineering. By precisely controlling the size, shape, and distribution of mineral particles, manufacturers can create ultrafine particles that blend seamlessly with the skin. The result? Enhanced transparency and a reduction in the white cast effect, making mineral sunscreens more appealing for everyday wear.
Improved Spreadability and Texture: Another key advantage of Solstice Technology is its ability to optimize the spreadability and texture of mineral sunscreen formulas. By engineering particles with specific surface properties, manufacturers can achieve a smoother and more lightweight consistency. This advancement ensures effortless application, allowing the sunscreen to glide evenly across the skin and be absorbed quickly. Say goodbye to the heavy, chalky feel often associated with mineral sunscreens.
High SPF Efficacy: Solstice Technology has also enabled the development of mineral sunscreens with higher Sun Protection Factor (SPF) efficacy. By engineering particles at the nanoscale, the surface area available for UV absorption and reflection is significantly increased. This translates into a higher SPF value while maintaining the same concentration of active ingredients.
Broad-Spectrum Performance: In addition to transparency and higher SPF efficacy, Solstice Technology enhances the broad-spectrum performance of mineral sunscreens. By engineering particles with precise dimensions, the coverage of UVA and UVB rays is optimized. This ensures that the sunscreen provides balanced protection against both types of damaging UV radiation. The result is a comprehensive defense against sunburn, premature aging, and the risk of skin cancer.
Solstice Technology has emerged as a groundbreaking advancement in the world of mineral sunscreens, and we are thrilled to be bringing you a piece of it with our new SPF 50 Mineral Mist. The enhanced transparency, improved spreadability, higher SPF efficacy, and optimized broad-spectrum performance makes this new mist a superior choice for daily sun protection. And, in traditional Hampton Sun fashion, you can expect this new mineral mist to be accompanied by a supremely fresh, timelessly luxe scent we all know and love: Privet Bloom.
