The third of James' foundation products, SPF or Sunscreen is one of the most important products you will ever invest in.
Did you know that 2 in 3 Australians will be diagnosed with a form of skin cancer by the time they are 70? *
Its true and it’s staggering.
Not only are the harsh UVB and UVA rays of the sun harmful for the skin from a cancer perspective, they are also the leading cause of premature agein. Sun spots, pigmentation, skin trauma, loss of volume and carcinogenic, there is nothing healthy about a tan.
The best sunscreen for you is the one you wear every day, so naturally we have a wide range of elegantly formulated sunscreens for all skin types and conditions.
When speaking of the two main types of sunscreen formulations, there is Physical or Mineral SPF & Chemical SPF.
Chemical sunscreens contain ingredients with big, long words like oxybenzone, avobenzone and octisalate. These types of SPFs act like a sponge for the UV rays to be absorbed into and we only recommend these on days when you’re super active and need to consistently reapply.
For everyday, we recommend Physical or Mineral sunscreens which will typically contain ingredients like Zinc or Titanium Oxide. These types of SPF sit at the top of the skin and repel UV rays. Physical SPF should be applied after serums and moisturisers but prior to your make up routine.

Oh, and promise to never leave home without it again. Please!
