Day Defence
Moisturiser with SPF 30

50ML / 1.7 FL OZ


Day Defence is a moisturiser with SPF 30, offering broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection from non-nano zinc oxide.

This is a light, non-greasy moisturiser providing daily protection from environmental stressors while hydrating the skin, using a reef-friendly, mineral formula.

Natural ● Vegan ● Cruelty-Free ● Carbon Neutral

      Day Defence contains zinc oxide, an effective natural protector against UVA rays, that cause ageing, worsen pigmentation and stress skin, and UVB rays, that cause burning. This powerful defence helps prevent skin damage and signs of ageing, without irritating. Zinc is also reef-friendly.

      Buriti oil, a natural SPF booster, is rich in vitamins A and E which help to support and repair the skin. Buriti is the world’s richest natural source of beta-carotene which fights against free radical damage, repairs weakened skin texture and helps to protect against environmental skin stressors such as pollution.

      A light blend of shea butter and aloe are soothing and hydrating without feeling sticky. They are fast spreading and absorbed easily, meaning Day Defence can be used before applying makeup or as a last step in your skincare routine, without leaving skin feeling greasy.

      Use daily and apply half a teaspoon of Day Defence as the final step to your skincare routine, either in place of or alongside a moisturiser, serum or Booster. Can be reapplied throughout the day for continued sun protection. Works well used with Blueberry Booster for increased blue light protection. 

      We always recommend patch testing before use. 

      Day Defence is non-comedogenic and suitable for all skin types and feels.
      As Day Defence contains mineral SPF, when applying the correct amount, initially a small white cast may be visible on darker skin tones, however in our trials we found that this disappeared once fully absorbed into the skin. To counteract any potential white cast, we use the smallest non-nano zinc available but as everyone’s skin is different, Day Defence might not suit all skin tones.

      Safe for pregnancy and breastfeeding.

      Great skincare should not come at a cost to our planet. We’re continuing our crusade against carbon emissions and our goal of becoming a carbon negative beauty brand. Here’s how Day Defence makes a difference:

      We petitioned for our primary manufacturer to switch to green energy by 2021, they’ve agreed to do so and Day Defence SPF Cream will be manufactured as such going forward.

      Tube made from sugarcane, a carbon-neutral material that is 100% recyclable.

      Remove tube from carton. Carton is 100% recyclable so can be disposed of in your domestic recycling.

      Cap and tube are both 100% recyclable in domestic recycling. Please follow these steps:
      1) Separate cap and tube
      2) With scissors, cut the top the tube
      3) Rinse out all of the contents of the tube and cap
      4) Put into recycling bin

      *Please note: the sugarcane material is a PE material and so can be recycled alongside fossil fuel plastic.
