USANA Celavive Daily Mineral Protective Cream
Our skin and the sun have a peculiar relationship. While it is true that sun rays are essential for our skin’s health as they help our body to make Vitamin D, too much exposure to the sun also has several side effects as the UVA and UVB rays of the sun are harmful to our skin.
In this context, sun protection creams, also known as sunscreens, should be an essential part of our skincare routine, especially for people exposed to the sun daily. Despite the abundance of sunscreens on the market, picking the best one can be challenging as each has its advantages and disadvantages.
Mineral creams are quite popular as they provide superior sun protection without being harsh on the skin, but as mentioned above, they have certain downsides. Firstly, it is very difficult for the skin to absorb mineral creams properly, and secondly, most mineral creams leave a nasty white layer on the skin’s surface.
The USANA Daily Mineral Protective Cream stands out from the rest as the light mineral cream is easily absorbed by the skin, offering SPF 30 sun protection without making you look pale and ghostly. Further in the article, we will try to understand better the ingredients of the USANA Protective Cream and how it is better than most other mineral sunscreens.
The Main Ingredients of USANA Celavive Daily Mineral Protective Cream
Two of the main active ingredients in the composition of the USANA Daily Mineral Protective Cream are:
- Zinc Oxide – Zinc is one of the most reliable sunscreen ingredients, which helps protect our skin from the sun’s harsh rays.
- Olivol Botanical Blend – It is a revolutionary skincare component unique to USANA. It is a blend of natural ingredients known to hydrate and protect the skin.
As much as we should be interested in the components that make up contemporary skincare products, we also need to be mindful of what those products don’t have.
Many modern sunscreens are made with certain substances that, although they protect us from the sun’s harmful rays, are also harmful to the skin in many ways. In this regard, USANA takes great care while making their products, such as USANA Daily Mineral Protective Cream:
- Paraben-Free – Paraben has been known to be a common skin irritant, especially for sensitive skin types. Also, parabens are often responsible for breakouts and skin allergies.
- Octinoxate-Free – Octinoxate is a petrochemical component that harms humans, coral reefs, and marine species.
- Mineral oil-Free – Mineral oil is another petrochemical component that clogs pores and triggers breakouts.
- Oxybenzone-Free – Oxybenzone is another such component unsuitable for people with sensitive or damaged skin as it may cause further damage. It has been proven to be harmful to marine animals.
- Formaldehyde-Free – Excessive exposure to formaldehyde can cause skin rashes and other skin-related problems.
How does USANA Celavive Mineral Protective Cream work?
The USANA Mineral Protective Cream is a light sunscreen with SPF 30 sun protection that gets quickly absorbed by the skin without leaving any white residue. The zinc oxide in the sunscreen is beneficial in shielding the skin from the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays.
The zinc oxide component works as a shield and creates a barrier for the skin. Studies have shown that zinc essentially acts as a physical barrier and helps scatter the UV rays, which prevents the UV rays from harming the skin.
Zinc-based mineral creams are also preferred as they do not disrupt the hormonal balance of people who use them daily. The Zinc Oxide present in the USANA Mineral Protective Cream also provides hydration for previously damaged and dry skin and repairs it internally.
The other active ingredient in the USANA Mineral Protective Cream is their Olivol Botanical Blend. It is essentially a blend of natural products like olive fruit, watermelon fruit, apple, and lentils. The botanical blend is known to provide 24-hour moisturisation, which is essential for beautiful glowing skin.
The USANA Mineral Protective Cream is non-comedogenic, which will not clog pores or prevent breakouts. Since it is a mineral cream, it is light, and the paraben-free and mineral oil-free formula makes it easier for the skin to absorb without leaving any oily white residue.
How Does USANA Celavive Daily Mineral Protective Cream Help?
USANA has produced the Daily Mineral Protective Cream in a wide range of skin tones, which allows consumers to choose the right product which will complement their skin colour.
Blue Light Protection
The sun’s rays are not the only harmful rays around us from which we need to protect our skin. The blue light emitted from the screens of the electronic devices around us is equally detrimental to our skin. We are surrounded by blue light-emitting devices, and studies have shown that constant exposure to high levels of blue light can cause skin barrier damage and ageing.
The USANA Mineral Protective Cream has certain blue light blockers extracted from ingredients like beta-carotene and winter cherry, which help protect us from harmful blue light while we are indoors.
The USANA Daily Mineral Protective Cream not only protects our skin but, in a way, also protects the environment. While daily usage of some sunscreen components eventually ends in water bodies, their harmful ingredients can destroy marine life.
USANA has avoided ingredients like Octinoxate and Oxybenzone; both these petrochemical products have been found to affect coral reefs and marine life. You can rest assured that you are not harming the environment by using the Protective Cream.
