About this deal

Great natural moisturizer and skin-identical ingredient that plays an important role in skin hydration and general skin health. So being a wax ester results in a couple of unique properties: First, jojoba oil is extremely stable. Umbra Tinte™ is formulated without any chemical sunscreens, which can be sensitizing and not as beneficial to skin as the naturally derived physical alternative zinc oxide.

A clear, colorless, almost odorless oil that spreads nicely and easily and gives a velvet dry skin feel. Founded upon a philosophy of ingredient-elimination, Drunk Elephant seeks to inspire a ‘total-skin reset. According to famous dermatologist, Leslie Baumann while tocopheryl acetate is more stable and has a longer shelf life, it’s also more poorly absorbed by the skin and may not have the same awesome photoprotective effects as pure Vit E. It works very well when combined with mostly oil-soluble emulsifiers such as Steareth-2 and the two together can form exceptionally stable emulsions.Second, jojoba oil is the most similar to human sebum (both being wax esters), and the two are completely miscible.

Zinc Oxide: A mineral filter, this sunscreen blocks UV damage without any of the potential for irritation or environmental damage that happens with certain chemical filters. It's quite the multi-tasker: an emollient and water-binding ingredient but also an emulsifier and can be used for stabilization purposes. Get your daily dose of sun protection with the Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense SPF 30 (60ml) from Drunk Elephant. They're both likely to be good for fighting acne, anti aging, dry skin, brightening skin and scar healing. I love that SPF, but I'm still looking for one that I can wear daily and fit in well with my skincare routine, which includes cleanser, eye cream, moisturizer, and SPF.

Umbra Sheer™ is formulated without any chemical sunscreens, which can be sensitising and not as beneficial to skin as zinc oxide, a naturally derived physical alternative. Upon using Drunk Elephant's Umbra Tinte SPF, I instantly noticed my skin was glowing, and the tone had evened out as well, thanks to the tinted It also gives a "slow-release" effect to oil-loving active ingredients and measurably reduces trans-epidermal water loss (that's pretty much a synonym of saying that it moisturizes the skin).
