THE SPF OF OUR DREAMS.
I have worked in skincare around the world, including for a brand out of Australia where they have incredibly stringent regulations around formulation and labels, especially around sun protection. SPF in the US is also highly regulated to make sure we're not exposing ourselves to chemicals or misleading claims.
That being said, it still happens, it was only discovered a couple of years ago that some ingredients do indeed build up in the bloodstream, requiring a revamp of what we find acceptable to put on our skin, or our children's skin.
Personally, knowing what I know, I prefer an 'organic' SPF over a chemical one, as in zinc. And I love it if it has ingredients that have synergy around barrier function, and includes antioxidants. I want it to be stable when exposed to sunlight (duh, but wouldn't be saying this if it's not always the case). And really, I tell people the best SPF for them is the one they will reapply throughout the day. With a luxurious feel and subtle clean aroma, I find my clients are more likely to reapply throughout the day (see their recommendation below). It is also rated a 31+ .. some will say only use a 50 SPF, but that usually means chemicals, and often provides a false sense of security leading to a one and done application. I'm also not a nano fan, this damages the world's coral reefs.
So when we found Le Prunier, I was hooked, for it ticks all the boxes - reef safe, no residue, protects against blue light, UVA, UVB, and pollution. I was already in love with their initial launch, Plum Oil, for a multitude of reasons, so to compliment this product with Plumscreen as their follow up felt so smart. Read on from their own information to discover all the benefits of their formulation and protection.
Of note, I am a firm believer in getting some Vitamin D, but go out early, avoid baking in the sun, and use SPF regularly on your face, neck, and hands to avoid signs of aging where they show up more often. Don't forget tops of your ears, and where your glasses rest. If you have a history of skin cancer or pre-cancerous legions, check with your doctor and follow their advice.

HOW TO USE
Le Prunier PLUMSCREEN® combines BROAD SPECTRUM sun protection with the skincare benefits of Le Prunier’s cult-favorite PLUM BEAUTY OIL into one.
Mineral sunscreens remain on the surface of the skin, but they are not without their limitations as they often leave a heavy residue. Plumscreen®provides invisible SPF 31 protection and skin benefits with Plum Beauty Oil, Plum Superfruit Complex®, and Zonaria Tournefortii Extract that absorb into the skin. Suitable for all skin types.
Plumscreen® combines our cult-favorite Plum Beauty Oil and Plum Superfruit Complex® that sinks into skin protecting collagen and elastin from UV damage and reduces free radicals that can damage DNA. By using the all-natural Power Of Plum®, the only sunscreen active is Non-Nano Zinc Oxide at 4.7%.
Plumscreen® protects, hydrates and primes the skin for makeup application. Unlike most sunscreens, our formula stays in place and does not shift under makeup. Use Plumscreen® in the mornings after your skincare routine and reapply every two hours. We also recommend applying a few drops of Plum Beauty Oil underneath Plumscreen® for added benefits.
