A mattifying facial sunscreen that protects sensitive and oily skin

 UV light is the main cause of sun-induced skin damage, but high-energy visible (HEVIS) light can also induce free radicals that cause further stress to skin. 

Eucerin Sensitive Protect Sun Fluid Mattifying SPF50+ is an everyday sunscreen that protects and mattifies sensitive and oily skin.  The Advanced Spectral Technology combines broadband and photostable UVA/UVB filters1 for very high UV protection with Licochalcone A to neutralize free radicals caused by UV and HEVIS light. The sun fluid also includes Glycyrrhetinic Acid which supports skin’s own DNA repair mechanism.

Unperfumed − and with an ultra-light, non-greasy texture that does not leave an oily shine − Eucerin Sensitive Protect Sun Fluid Mattifying SPF50+ is clinically and dermatologically proven to be very good tolerated by sensitive skin.

(1) Meeting the high standards for UVA and UVB protection defined by Cosmetics Europe. The levels of UVA protection are higher than the EU recommendation.

Clinical Studies

Clinical and dermatological studies prove very good skin tolerability on sensitive skin. The product has been tested in, and proven to be suitable for, humid climates.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know which SPF to use?

Sunscreens are available in four different levels of protection: low (factor 6 to 10), medium (15 to 25), high (30 to 50) and very high (50+). The higher the protection factor the better your skin is protected, but it’s important to apply the product thoroughly (be careful not to miss any bits) and to reapply it generously every two hours.

What is the difference between UVA and UVB rays?

UVA rays penetrate the deeper layers of skin. They stimulate the production of free radicals in the skin which cause oxidative stress and can lead to indirect DNA damage (where the free radicals modify cellular DNA over time). UVA rays are most commonly associated with photoaging (premature skin aging caused by the sun). They can also trigger sun allergies such as Polymorphous Light Eruption (PLE). UVB rays can also provoke allergies, but to a lesser degree.

UVB rays provide the energy your skin needs to make Vitamin D and stimulate the production of melanin which is responsible for tanning. They don’t travel as deeply as UVA rays, penetrating only the outermost layers of skin, but they cause more immediate damage such as sunburn. UVB rays are directly absorbed by cellular DNA which can lead to skin diseases such as actinic keratosis and skin cancer.
Both types of UV can induce hyperpigmentation and may contribute to conditions such as sun spots (also known as age spots) and melasma.

What is high-energy visible light and why does my skin need to be protected from it?

The sunlight spectrum consists of UV, visible and infrared light. Visible sunlight can be detected by the human eye, while the others remain invisible. Part of this visible spectrum has a high energy level and is known as high-energy visible light. It is also referred to as HEVIS light, HEV Light, HEVL and sometimes ‘blue light’ or ‘blue violet light’.

Like UVA rays, HEVIS light penetrates the deeper layers of skin (the dermis) and can generate free radicals. These free radicals are one of the main causes of photoaging (premature skin aging caused by the sun). They interfere with skin cells and break down the collagen and elastin that gives our skin its plump, youthful appearance. HEVIS light has also been linked to uneven skin pigmentation and melasma.

Many modern sunscreens offer effective protection against UVA and UVB rays, but we recommend that you look out for products that also defend against the negative effects of HEVIS light. These products will give your skin reliable protection from photoaging and, in the long run, can also help to combat visible signs of skin aging such as wrinkles.

Why should I integrate sun face care into my daily routine?

Facial skin is more sensitive to UVA/UVB radiation than skin on the rest of the body as it is exposed to sun all year round. Sun protection can help you avoid the cellular DNA damage caused by UV, photoaging (premature aging caused by the sun) and hyperpigmentation. It is important to protect facial skin whenever it is exposed to the sun.

Apply Eucerin Sun Fluid to your face

Three steps to optimal sun protection

Sun fluid for sensitive and oily skin

Choose a product that offers the right level of protection for your skin. It should protect against UVA and UVB rays and offer HEVIS light defense. It should also be tailored to your skin type and condition.

How much mattifying sun fluid should I use?

It’s important to use sufficient product and to reapply it at regular intervals.

You can use your palm to measure how much product to use. We recommend that, to cover your face, neck and décolleté, you use a thick line of sun fluid that stretches from the tip of your middle finger down to your wrist.
Apply sun fluid thoroughly to your face

Some parts are easy to miss. Don’t forget your ears, the back of your neck and, if you’re bald or have thinning hair, your scalp.

Important usage instructions

  • Apply generously before sun exposure and reapply frequently− especially after swimming, perspiring or toweling − to maintain the original protection
  • Reducing the quantity will significantly lower the level of protection
  • Do not stay too long in the sun, even while using a sunscreen product
  • Over-exposure to the sun is a serious health threat
  • Keep babies and young children out of direct sunlight
  • Avoid contact with eyes
  • Allow product to absorb completely, and avoid direct contact with textiles and hard surfaces to prevent staining
