Description

CeraVe Hydrating Mineral Face Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 is a 100%-mineral, hydrating, oil-free face sunscreen with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide that forms a protective barrier on your skin's surface to help reflect the sun's UVA and UVB rays without irritating sensitive skin. Mineral face sunscreen has three essential ceramides to help restore the skin’s barrier and provide long-lasting hydration, as well as niacinamide to help calm skin. CeraVe hydrating sunscreen lotion is allergy tested, paraben-free, fragrance-free, oil-free, oxybenzone-free, octinoxate-free, non-comedogenic and suitable for sensitive skin.

Key Ingredients:
Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are 100% mineral sunscreen filters that form a protective layer on the skin to help reflect the sun’s rays
Ceramides help restore skin’s natural barrier and lock in moisture
Hyaluronic acid helps retain skin’s natural moisture
Niacinamide helps calm the skin

How to Use:
Apply CeraVe Sunscreen Face Lotion SPF 50 liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure
Reapply at least every 2 hours and immediately after towel drying
Use a water resistant sunscreen if swimming or sweating
Children under 6 months of age: ask a doctor

Application Tips:
Mineral-based UV filters form a protective barrier to help reflect UV rays away from the skin’s surface. Because the ingredients in a mineral sunscreen stay on the surface of the skin to help protect it, a white cast can sometimes remain after applying the product. Follow these tips to apply your mineral sunscreen:

Dispense a small amount to one palm and rub your hands together
Apply to one area of the body at a time and thoroughly massage into the skin
The formula should spread easily without leaving a greasy residue or feel
All sunscreens should be applied liberally for sun protection. It is essential to use any sunscreen product as directed.

Sun Protection Measures: Spending time in the sun increases your risk of skin cancer and early skin aging. To decrease this risk, regularly use a sunscreen with a broad spectrum SPF value of 15 or higher and other sun protection measures including:

Limit time in the sun, especially from 10 a.m-2 p.m
Wear long-sleeved shirts, pants, hats and sunglasses

Brand Story:
CeraVe is the #1 dermatologist recommended skincare brand**. Whether you need products for your sensitive, oily, acne-prone, combination or normal skin, need a soothing moisturizer for your baby, have specific skin concerns, like eczema or psoriasis, or just want a hydrating serum or anti-aging cream, CeraVe can help. The CeraVe story began in 2005 after experts noticed that many skin conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and dry skin all had one thing in common: a compromised skin barrier. Developed with dermatologists, CeraVe offers a complete line of skincare products that contain three essential ceramides enhanced with a revolutionary delivery system to help restore the skin’s natural protective barrier.

Q: Titanium Dioxide has what function? See it is 6% in the SPF30 Face and 9% in the SFF50 Face. Thank you for explaining.

submitted by Nancy H - 2 years ago
  • A: Hi Nancy H! We appreciate your interest in our Hydrating Mineral Face Sunscreen Lotion. Titanium dioxide is a naturally occurring mineral that's used in a variety of products, including sunscreens. Because of its ability to help protect the skin from the widest spectrum of UV light, including both UVA and UVB rays, sunscreens with titanium dioxide are ideal for both daily and prolonged sun exposure. It is often used in combination with zinc oxide. Titanium dioxide works to reflect and scatter damaging UVA and UVB rays off the skin’s surface. This helps prevent sunburn and long-term sun damage. We hope this information helps!

Hi there! Thank you for reaching out about our sunscreen. CeraVe Hydrating Sunscreen is a 100% mineral filter sunscreen. Mineral sunscreens utilize titanium and/or zinc oxide particles to form a barrier that reflects the sun's rays away from the skin. Because the ingredients stay on the surface of your skin, a white cast can sometimes remain after applying the product. We suggest applying a small amount in the palm of your hands and rubbing them together. Then, apply to one small area at a time, rubbing well. The formula should apply easily leaving a lightweight, non-greasy feel. Keep in mind, all sunscreens should be applied liberally for sun protection. We hope this helps!

Wouldn't recommend unless you're very pale. It leaves a very white cast on your face and it's so thick it doesn't absorb well. It gets dry fast and leaves the skin feeling really dry as you try to work it into the skin. It feels like it's causing more damage than helping.

Not black women friendly at all. This product leaves the worst white cast on the face and their is no hiding it. I've even tried mixing it with my moisturizer and it's still bad. I'm sure the SPF part of it is good but they need to work on their product being more blendable and make sure it fits everyone's skin tone.

The white cast on this sunscreen is crazy.

Hi there! We're sorry to hear about the experience you had with Hydrating Mineral Face Sunscreen Lotion! Our Hydrating Sunscreen is a 100% mineral filter sunscreen. Because the ingredients stay on the surface of your skin, a white cast can sometimes remain after applying the product. We suggest applying a small amount in the palm of your hands and rubbing them together. Then, apply to one small area at a time, rubbing well. The formula should apply easily leaving a lightweight, non-greasy feel. We hope this information helps!

Big no no!! It leaves the worst white cast on the skin! Very thick and not easily blendable neutrogina is way better and at a lower price.

Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with our Hydrating Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 Face Lotion. We understand how frustrating it is when a product does not meet your expectations. We will be passing your feedback along to the team. CeraVe Hydrating Sunscreen is a 100% mineral filter sunscreen. Mineral sunscreens utilize titanium and/or zinc oxide particles to form a barrier that reflects the sun's rays away from the skin. Because the ingredients stay on the surface of your skin, a white cast can sometimes remain after applying the product. We suggest applying a small amount in the palm of your hands and rubbing them together. Then, apply to one small area at a time, rubbing well. The formula should apply easily leaving a lightweight, non-greasy feel. Keep in mind, all sunscreens should be applied liberally for sun protection. We think you will love our Hydrating Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 Face Sheer Tint to help maintain moisture—while leaving a sheer, natural finish that blends seamlessly with your skin. We hope this helps!
