Marine Layer Anti-oxidant Mist

Sunscreen Alternative

Marine Layer Antioxidant Mist is an oil free moisturizing spray brimming with antioxidants to protect your skin from the effects of the sun's rays.  Packaged in a pocket spritzer so you can pack it with you anywhere and easily reapply throughout the day.

Marine Layer Antioxidant Mist pairs Vitamin C with the peptides, Preventhelia and Juveleven, to shield your skin from the effects of UV exposure and other environmental pollutants.

Cucumber hydrosol together with the peptide, Telangyn, helps soothe and hydrate sun exposed skin reducing the appearance of redness.

The pocket size mister is perfect for taking everywhere whether you're spending a day at the beach, a morning at the farmer's market, or an afternoon in nature. 

The pocket spritzer contains enough antioxidant mist for about 50 sprays.  Pick up a 2 ounce refill for your pocket spritzer to keep it ready for your next adventure.

While I was out on a fishing trip with my dad, I found myself in need of reapplying my antioxidant face lotion. 

There was just one small problem. 

My hands were gross and there was no way to wash them.  While waiting for the next nibble, I started wondering "Wouldn't it be great if I had a pocket size spritzer packed with antioxidants and other ingredients to help shield my skin from the effects of the sun's rays?"

While I didn't bring any fish home that day, it was far from a bad day of fishing - that trip spawned the idea for Marine Layer Anti-oxidant Mist.

Sunscreens are intended to sit on top of your skin reflecting UV rays off your skin or de-energizing the UV ray by reacting with it at your skin's surface.  Antioxidants work below your skin's surface and soak up reactive oxygen species (ROS).  These reactive oxygen species, which include free radicals, are generated as by-products when the energetic UV ray reacts with molecules in your skin.

Because anti-oxidants need to soak into your skin to provide maximum protection, layering your product application works best.  And, it's also important to apply at least 30 minutes before getting into the water to give the antioxidants time to soak into your skin rather than just being washed off when you get into the water.

Spritz onto your skin anytime you need a refreshing mist. Avoid getting this product into your eyes. Apply at least 30 minutes before getting into the water (ideally, also apply when you first wake up).

Vitamin C is an incredible multi-functional skincare ingredient and is included in this toner because of its anti-oxidant properties.  Vitamin C is the most abundant anti-oxidant in your skin. 

Since your body doesn't make Vitamin C naturally, eating foods rich in vitamin C and applying it topically can boost your reserves, which is important when you're in sunlight (anti-oxidant stores can be quickly exhausted when you're in the sun).

The peptides Preventhelia and Juveleven help shield the skin from the effects of UV exposure and environmental pollutants.

Sodium PCA is a skin identical natural moisturizing factor that helps skin maintain its optimum hydration.  This humectant is oil free and vegan (of course).

Cucumber hydrosol soothes the skin while rose hydrosol helps minimize the appearance of pores and balance oiliness.  Both of these hydrosols are certified organic.

How are antioxidants different from sunscreens?

Sunscreens are intended to sit on top of your skin reflecting UV rays off your skin or de-energizing the UV ray by reacting with it at your skin's surface.  Antioxidants work below your skin's surface and soak up reactive oxygen species (ROS).  These reactive oxygen species, which include free radicals, are generated as by-products when the energetic UV ray reacts with molecules in your skin.

How to Use

Spritz onto your skin anytime you need a refreshing mist. Avoid getting this product into your eyes. Apply at least 30 minutes before getting into the water (ideally, also apply when you first wake up).
