SAFESCREEN® is a range of broad-spectrum physical sunscreens formulated without any chemical UV filters.
SAFESCREEN® Munnar can be used both as an outdoor and indoor sunscreen. It is the best sunscreen for both those with hypopigmentation and hyperpigmentation related skin conditions as it contains Polypodium leucotomos leaf extract, which is proven for its pigment cell stabilising and photoprotective properties.
All SAFESCREENS were tested thrice at two independent, third-party labs for SPF, UVA - PF, Water resistance and Critical Wavelength using IS 17493, in-house and in vitro ISO 24443 based on the water content of the sunscreens, respectively.
SAFESCREEN® Munnar can be used by people who are prone to pigmentary skin conditions like Melasma, Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation(PIH), and Photopigmentation. The melanocyte stabilizing action of Polypodium leaf extracts in this SAFESCREEN® helps in managing the pigmentary conditions in an effective way. Polypodium containing applications and oral Polypodium is recommended for those with conditions like vitiligo, and hence this sunscreen may be considered as safe for use, by those with vitiligo.
Apply 3-4 pumps of SAFESCREEN® Munnar liberally on the face and neck and reapply after 5-6 hours. For better durability, you can also follow the dual-layer sunscreen rule wherein you need to apply 1-2 pumps of the product followed by reapplication after 15-20 minutes with another 1-2 pumps.
SAFESCREEN® Munnar can serve as a great makeup base and suits Indian skin tones with a very good colour match.
SAFESCREEN® Munnar is a moisturizing sunscreen and so you may not need an additional moisturiser. In case your skin feels dry, apply a thin moisturiser like the Sebamed Care Gel or OptiMIST™ WaterBody™ and allow it to settle for 5-10 minutes after which you can apply the sunscreen.
SAFESCREEN® Munnar is water-resistant for up to 6 hours. So twice a day application spaced between 5 and 6 hours would be sufficient.
Yes, you can layer another SAFESCREEN or one more layer of your Munnar Sunscreen. The second layer goes on 15-20 minutes after and over the first. If you wish to layer over with Besant sunscreen for a matte finish, use only a tiny quantity of the Besant sunscreen(just like how you would use a matte foundation).
Yes, if you have a combination to dry skin you can apply OptiMIST™ WaterBody™ first. Leave on for 5-10 minutes and then apply SAFESCREEN® Munnar. If you have oily, acne-prone skin you can skip using WaterBody™️ or consider using, even more, lighter moisturisers like the Sebamed Care Gel or Avène Thermal Water Spray.
SAFESCREEN® Munnar is already fortified with antioxidant Polypodium, so an additional antioxidant serum may not be required. However, if you still wish to apply, you may apply a thin layer of White Pine® Mirror Glaze. Allow it dry for 10-15 minutes and then apply the sunscreen.
SAFESCREEN® Munnar comes with Polypodium leucotomos leaf extracts which have been known to protect against the interactions of the screen-emitted blue light with the UV spectrum. So an additional serum to block blue light may not be required.
Light Routine®/Milk Route® are Chemical Exfoliants that are meant to be used in the evenings as they can make the skin photosensitive. So it is advisable to use SAFESCREEN® Munnar during the day to avoid sunburn as well as sun tanning.
SAFESCREEN® Munnar contains non-nano zinc oxide as its only mineral UV filter. As per US-FDA, Zinc Oxide is categorised under GRASE-I which ensures its safety profile. Also, SAFESCREEN® Munnar is free from chemical UV filters and other endocrine-disrupting chemicals. Polypodium leaf extract in this sunscreen is widely used as an oral antioxidant which again proves it to be safe for topical use.
None of the ingredients in SAFESCREEN® Munnar is known to have any mutagenic potential. This product is not deemed to have any carcinogenic activity.
SAFESCREEN® Munnar sunscreen is a unisex product. So, it can be used by men.
If you have dry skin, apply moisturiser first, followed by sunscreen. If you have oily skin, try the product without moisturiser for a week, then add moisturiser if necessary.
