An important consideration when selecting a quality sunscreen is its ability to stay on the skin and maintain effectiveness while under exposure to elements like water. This becomes ever more pertinent for athletic activities, or anything involving intensified contact with the environment.
Biophyll’s Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 (water resistant) was designed with longevity and the utmost effect iveness in mind. Perfectly suited for anyone who intends to spend long active amounts of time under the sun, this water resistant sunscreen uses the synergistic UV screening properties of Titanium Dioxide and Octinoxate to help prevent sunburn.
Water Resistant silicone oils help maintain a solid hydrophobic barrier for 40 minutes duration, while Aloe and a blend of nourishing oils help moisturize and invigorate the skin.
- Provides exceptional UV protection
- Moisturizes and soothes skin

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.

how it works
Biophyll’s Sunscreen lotion SPF 30 (water resistant) was designed by combining the UV deflecting properties of Titanium Dioxide with the UV absorptive qualities of Octinoxate. These two ingredients were chosen for a cooperative strategy that exists between these two ingredients.
In addition to improving the spectral coverage and skin coverage, there is an increase in UV path length. The Titanium Dioxide scatters the UV lights from its reflective particles, which increases the path length for the UV light to traverse over the sunscreen film. This increases the span at which the organic Octinoxate absorbs UV lights, increasing the total efficacy of the sunscreen.
Achieving optimum SPF performance requires the active ingredients to be distributed as evenly as possible over the surface of the skin. Therefore the film forming properties are very important.
Biophyll’s Sunscreen lotion SPF 30 (water resistant) uses Silicone Oils to help maximize this screening factor and deliver the water resistant benefit. These oils also possess very good spreading properties, which assist in the formation of a coherent continuous film upon application of the lotion.
Silicone Oils are inherently hydrophobic with a natural tendency to keep water from infiltrating and washing away. This forms a more durable layer on the skin providing more water resistant tenacity.
Aloe Leaf Extract and Sunflower Seed Oil have been added to provide moisturizing and skin soothing properties. This provides the lotion with a smooth delightful skin-feel that is more familiar and preferable to consumers.
