SKINCARE INGREDIENTS 101
What are oleosomes?
Extracted from seeds, they are micro-oil droplets composed of a protein and phospholipid barrier with a fatty acid interior. On the skin, they rupture at different times, slowly dispersing fatty acids and antioxidants, and providing long-lasting wear.
Oleosome sunscreen improves SPF protection.

The ingredients inside your sunscreen are only as good as how you apply them. As the last step in your skincare routine, apply a liberal amount of sunscreen to your face, neck, chest, ears, back of hands and arms... essentially all sun-exposed skin.
Sunscreen ingredients are used-up quickly. If you're outdoors for prolonged periods of time, be sure to reapply every 2 hours -- or more frequently if you're sweating or getting wet. Reapplying is vital to protecting your skin from sun damage and early signs of skin aging.
