In what might be considered nothing more than pop culture news, a sunscreen produced by actress Jessica Alba’s skin care company is being accused of not working as advertised. The company believes that the people who have gotten sunburned are not using the product properly, according to instructions — and according to U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) guidelines:
Highest FDA rating – SPF 30
Effective and safe for use as an 80-minute water-resistant sunscreen lotion when used as directed
- Shake Well
- Apply liberally and evenly 15 minutes before sun exposure
- Reapply after 80 minutes of swimming or sweating, immediately after towel drying
- Apply at least every two hours
Whether or not this latest headline-grabbing product does the job it’s supposed to do — or not – will likely continue to be debated in the tabloids, and possibly in court. Either way, however, at least the story once again focuses our attention on the importance of wearing sunscreen.
Yet somehow the controversy continues to swirl around sunscreen use in general, and some people are still going unprotected in the sun. At the Central Florida Eye Institute, we know and believe in the value of wearing sunscreen. That’s why we offer our patients the revolutionary Age Defying Fusion line of skin care products with sunscreen from Fallene Cosmeceuticals.
Why TiZO products with sunscreen are so popular
Typical sunscreens use chemicals that are absorbed by the skin, but they can cause irritation. TiZO Age Defying Fusion products contain up to eight different types of mineral particles that sit gently and invisibly on top of the skin and physically deflect the sun’s damaging UVA and UVB rays with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide.
TiZO products are fragrance and oil free, but specialized skin conditioners create a unique aesthetic and sensory experience that actually encourages frequent use. Every Age Defying Fusion product has sunscreen, so your skin in not only fortified, but also protected.
