  • Sun. Wind. Water. Pollution.

    Daily exposure to sun and pollution can take a serious toll on your skin's health! That's why it is so important to think about protecting your skin against environmental damage throughout the year.

    Our Elements Daily Defense is everything you've been looking for in a cream that aids to defend against any weather forecast.

    Elements is blended with 12.5% non-nano zinc oxide. You can feel good knowing that zinc oxide helps protect against harmful UVA & UVB rays!

    Elements is also infused with a host of protective oils and extracts (including buriti, raspberry, pumpkin, rice bran and seabuckthorn).

    This medium weight moisturizing cream will infuse your face and body with the protection you've been craving! It offers a matte finish without the greasy tacky feeling.

    Our unscented recipe also includes spirulina which is loaded with chlorophyll and rich in (GLA) gamma-linolenic acid helping to make your skin supple... and we've topped the formula off with polyphenol rich matcha tea which has been shown to provide internal and external protection from UV radiation and in turn, photo aging.

  • Non Nano Zinc Oxide • a soft white powder that works to provide 28 times the skin’s natural protection against the sun’s UVA & UVB rays.
    Buriti • restores moisture in sun-exposed skin and possesses a naturally occurring SPF factor.
    Spirulina • exerts sun damage protection by quenching free radicals and reducing inflammation.
    Red Raspberry Seed Oil • this superb anti-oxidant is known for its prevention of rashes, eczema, skin lesions and also has properties which provide broad-spectrum UVA and UVB shielding.

  • Apply liberally on your face and body if possible 20 minutes before going outside. Re-apply every 2 hours and always after swimming or perspiring heavily.

Not my favorite :-(

I wanted to love this cream, but I can’t. It’s mattifying and that does not work for me. It does feel nice as a hand cream and I love the ingredients. Not for somebody with dry skin and one that likes a dewy look.

Well we really appreciate candid feedback like this and I’d like to suggest that you might like to consider trying it over a well moisturized face - such as with a generous pump of our Superfood Serum and Face Food Mist. That will contribute to more of a dewy look and if you wear makeup, it will also act as an amazing base for foundation or bronzer.

Hello sunshine!

This sunscreen is not greasy, not sticky, doesn't turn my skin white and completely absorbs. Feels wonderful on the skin and as someone with sensitive skin, it is soothing- probably the zinc. Finally, a sunscreen that doesn't make me wish for rain!

ps. It is really pretty with a bit of 'Face Glow' mixed in. Just smoosh it together in your hand and apply. It gives a soft glow and just a bit of coverage- like a BB cream, but a non-toxic BB cream. Bonus- you can adjust the colour.

Elements sunscreen

Having sensitive skin, regular store bought sunscreens created havoc with my face. Elements is the answer to these issues!

The cream is quickly absorbed, protects the skin from the sun and feels absolute wonderful due to all the natural ingredients.

Hi Michaela - We are so happy to hear that you and your skin are happy using our Elements. We do use a generous amount of non nano zinc and protective oils in our formula but in full disclosure, it is important to point out that Elements is not certified as a sunscreen and that’s why we don’t claim a specific spf associated with it. That’s not to say that Elements won’t help protect and nourish your skin but if you are going to be out sun tanning or in full sun you might want to considering using an spf of 30 or more :)

La crème plein air parfaite!!!

J'ai longtemps cherché ce genre de crème qui offre la protection idéale pour moi. Sportive et active à la montagne, j'applique cette crème tous les matins et j'ai l'esprit tranquille pour la journée. Le fait qu'elle soit mate contribue aussi à sa popularité à mes yeux. Je l'adore et j'espère que vous la "cuisinerez" longtemps. Merci

Matte SPF, no white caste

This is my favorite SPF cream. It’s creamy and one pump covers my face, neck and chest. It works perfectly under makeup. I’ve repurchased and will continue to do so.
