Zo Elementals is a skin care brand which I founded and formulated. For more information, check out the dedicated website here.
Zo Elementals Solar Velum contains the most effective known moisturizer, Hyaluronic Acid, in this refreshing, non-greasy formula that’s perfect for summer. It also contains Vitamin C and Knotgrass Flavonoids which not only make skin firmer and reduce fine lines and wrinkles, but they also counteract sun-induced photo-aging. Sunscreens block only 55% of the free radicals produced by UV exposure. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10522500) To optimize UV protection, it is important to use sunscreens combined with a topical antioxidant, such as the Vitamin C in this product.
DIRECTIONS: Apply to face and body as desired to keep skin moisturized. Best when used right after a shower while skin is still moist or right before sun exposure.
This product is NOT a sunscreen. Best when used a alongside a product with SPF during prolonged sun exposure.

Top 5 Ingredients
Knotgrass Flavonoids is the first botanical used to counteract Infrared induced photo-aging. Infrared light makes up 40% of the sun’s rays and is not blocked by typical sunscreens.
Vitamin C does not block UV light but instead neutralizes the free radicals that it causes. This allows your body to receive the benefits of sun-exposure, such as Vitamin D, while still reducing your risk of skin cancer and melanoma. Under laboratory conditions, it has been shown that application of topical Vitamin C reduced sunburn by up to 60%. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3673383/)
Hyaluronic Acid is a cushioning, lubricating chemical that’s naturally created in the human body. Many connective tissue ailments in joints, heart valves, and eyes are the result of Hyaluronic Acid deficiency. When applied to the skin, it promotes the formation of collagen, allowing skin to stay supple.
White Tea is produced by cultivating the silvery-white young leaves and buds of the Camellia sinensis plant. It is the most rare and expensive form of tea on the market today. Compared to black and green teas, white tea has the highest level of polyphenols, enhancing its cancer-fighting potential. It also contains caffeine, which reduces puffiness and helps skin hold on to nutrients.
DMAE is often referred to as "A Facelift in a Jar” due to its skin tightening properties. It shows benefits in improving the appearance of coarse wrinkles, under-eye dark circles, and sagging neck skin.
