Why It’s Different
Made with Minerals: This formula relies on zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to provide pure mineral, broad-spectrum SPF 30 protection against UVB rays (the burning rays) and UVA rays (the rays that age the skin).
Peptide Power: A peptide complex with palmitoyl tripeptide-1 and palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 helps to minimize the appearance of signs of aging.
Unrivaled Efficacy: This formula utilizes each ingredient in its most effective form, selected specifically for its ability to deliver real results.
Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide – These mineral UV filters help to prevent sunburn and when used as directed with other sun protection measures, reduce the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun.
Polygonum Aviculare Extract (Knotgrass Extract) – Knotgrass extract is a plant antioxidant that has been shown to help improve the visible effects of damage caused by infra-aging and extrinsic factors.
Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract (Green Tea Extract) – Green tea extract has potent antioxidant properties to help combat the effects of environmental damage.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1 – This anti-aging peptide targets signs of aging in damaged skin. It helps to support the appearance of skin elasticity and firmness.
Glycerin – Glycerin is a moisturizer and humectant well-known for its ability to attract water to the skin.
Courtney’s Application Recommendations: Apply GUARDIAN in circular motions to all areas of the body, from head to toe – especially in areas where skin is exposed to the sun. Apply liberally and evenly 15 minutes prior to sun exposure. Reapply every 2 hours with increased sun exposure.
