Shadow Silicone Matte Cream
Uvinul A Plus + Melanin + Titanium Dioxide + Zinc Oxide + OMC + Dowsil
WHAT IS IT? Shadow Silicone Matte Cream SPF 50 is a non-greasy sunscreen which protects the skin from various harmful radiations including UVA, UVB, Blue Light, Infra-Red Light and High Energy Visible Light. This high protective formulation is oil-free, leaving the skin non-tacky and soft.
WHY IS IT DIFFERENT?
Generally, sunscreens are considered to provide protection against Ultraviolet rays. Most of the sun protecting formulation overlook the harms of radiations from other sources like Infra-red, blue light, high energy visible light.
The second major limitation of the sunscreens is their oily and greasy nature. Most of the people prefer avoiding a sunscreen then getting a tacky skin.
But every problem has a solution, Shadow Silicone Matte Cream SPF 50 is the perfect solution to both these problems. This matte finished silicone-based cream is infused with ingredients to get a perfect coverage against all harmful radiations including Infra-red, blue light, high energy visible light and off course the UV rays.
The ultra-smooth texture gives a non-oily, dry look to the skin to suit all types of skin.
BACKED BY SCIENCE
It is a big challenge to formulate a sunscreen which gives complete protection and an amazing skin feel. The logic behind Shadow Silicone Matte Cream SPF 50 is to meet both these parameters. The innovative actives like Uvinul A Plus, melanin, octyl methoxy cinnamate and titanium dioxide provides shielding from all sort of radiations. The silicone base containing Cyclopentasiloxane & Dimethicone gives a matte, non-oily, non-shiny feel and makes the cream water resistance. The formulation is so praiseworthy that it will encourage you to adhere to your daily sun care regimen.

UVINUL A PLUS
UVINUL A PLUS (Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate) from BASF, Germany provides not only reliably filters the sun’s dangerous UVA rays, but also provides outstanding protection from free radicals and skin damage. This innovative active have certain sustainable benefits that it does not contain preservative, helps to prevent long term skin damage and owns a high efficiency at low concentration.
HEV Melanin is a novel, patent pending ingredient from Lipo Chemicals, USA that won First Place at the Innovation Zone Best Ingredient Award at In-Cosmetics, Milan.
Melanin occurs naturally in the human body where it is released from melanocytes into the skin as a first line of defense against exposure to certain damaging light waves. HEV Melanin is the first cosmetic ingredient designed to protect the skin from damaging high energy visible light.
It is a fractionated vegetable derived melanin designed to be used topically as an additional defense. It shields the skin from high energy blue/violet visible light (HEV) that may induce premature ageing according to recent scientific studies. Red visible light is deemed to have beneficial effects, and HEV Melanin is tailored so that red light can be transmitted to the skin.
TITANIUM DIOXIDE (Micronized)
Titanium dioxide is an inert earth mineral that protects skin from UVA and UVB radiation and is considered no risk of skin sensitivity. Because its gentle, titanium dioxide is a great sunscreen active for sensitive, redness-prone skin. It’s great for use around the eyes, as it is highly unlikely to cause stinging.
ZINC OXIDE (Micronized)
Zinc Oxide (micronized) work by scattering the sun’s rays, which prevents potentially damaging ultraviolet radiation from getting to the skin. The finely powdered mineral formula used in sunscreen does two things—reflect and absorb. A protective zinc oxide layer on top of the skin reflects and absorbs the harmful UVA (also considered to be carcinogenic) and UVB rays such that they don’t reach your skin.
ZINC OXIDE (Micronized)
Octyl Methoxycinnamate also known as octinoxate and ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, is the oldest and most common sunscreen active used to protect skin, primarily against UVB rays. It absorbs UVB radiation (at wavelengths: 280-320 nm) with a peak protection at 310nm. Octyl Methoxycinnamate has a solid record of safety (decades of research and thousands of studies establishing its safety in sunscreens as indisputable).
DOWSIL (DC 9045)
DOWSIL (DC 9045) from Dow Chemicals, USA is a mixture of high molecular weight silicone elastomers. It imparts a matte appearance to the formulation. Does not contain ingredients of animal origin and is non-GMO.
