Broad Spectrum, High Protection Sunscreen designed for face and body. Works better than any sunscreen we've tried-even those that claim very high Spf numbers.

Sunscreen is important all year, not just in summer.
"We always take it with us to ski in the Colorado Rockies where the sun and high altitude can really burn skin.
It's great in CA and Hawaii, too."
"My husband works out of doors. He keeps Solar Defender in his work truck and applies it after shaving in the morning."
He takes a little in his pocket in an opaque trial size bottle to re-apply when on roofs or ladders."

More information on Sunscreens:
SPF indicates the amount of time it takes to turn slightly red 24 hours after sun exposure –
not how much sun protection is delivered. The FDA has defined SPF as the amount of time it takes to produce minimal redness (erythema) in the skin via UVB exposure. This is called the Minimal Erythemal Dose (MED), and it’s achieved when the skin attains the amount of UVB required to produce redness, more commonly known as sunburn.
SPF only applies to UVB light—the burning ray.
Wearing a high SPF provides a false sense of security. Three reasons: 1) The SPF rating only
applies to UVB protection, not the amount of UVA protection that’s delivered, which may be low or
non-existant. UVA contributes more to aging than UVB and has been found to cause a high
percentage of melanomas. 2) Most people don’t apply enough sunscreen to get the SPF stated on
the bottle. 3) Since even the highest SPF sunscreens are depleted as they lower UV energy rays,
sunscreen must be reapplied every two hours to achieve the stated SPF.
There’s no such thing as sunblock. As a professional, you should never use the term “sunblock”.
Never, ever . . . ever! Why, you might ask, when everyone else in the industry does? Because my clients
depend on me for the truth, which is: No sunscreen completely blocks UV rays.
An SPF 15 protects against 93 percent of UV rays, SPF 30 protects against 97 percent, SPF 50 wards off 98
percent, SPF 98 about 99 percent – and these percentages only apply if you rub on the same amount of sunscreen that was used in the test to determine SPF. So a very high SPF
gives a false sense of security.
It's more important to apply and use frequently with good ingredients such as are in Solar Defender.
