Protect + Clarify Daily Face Lotion is a powerful anti-ageing moisturiser that calms, hydrates and protects to an SPF 15 level. Clémence Organics’ first sun-protective moisturiser is rich in zinc oxide that glides on invisibly to create a barrier against harsh UV rays. The added protective effects of carotenoid-rich Karanga Seed Oil and microalgal elements create multi-level sun protection that repairs and nourishes summer skin. Protect + Clarify Daily Face Lotion is ideal for those who spend most of their day in the office/indoors but are constantly being told they need some level of sun protection, even if they only spend 15-30 minutes in the sun.

KEY BENEFITS

  • SPF15 non-visible (& non-nano) zinc oxide, Karanga seed oil and microalgal extracts provide natural protection from the sun
  • Australian native Snowflower fights pigmentation and naturally brightens skin
  • Biofermented hyaluronic acid supports collagen synthesis and reduces appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Cold pressed rosehip, jojoba, and buriti oils increase skin elasticity and stimulate skin repair and renewal
  • Premium essential oils, including rose otto, provide antiseptic and astringent properties, benefiting those that struggle with acne, inflammation and redness

Why do you need sunshine?

Sunshine is vital for health and can boost mood. It also helps our bodies to produce vitamin D, a hormone essential for immune health and the function of many other systems in the body. In fact, vitamin D deficiency has been linked to a wide range of health disorders including cancer, autoimmune disease, depression and high blood pressure.  Vitamin D is difficult to obtain through the diet and so vitamin D supplements are increasingly prescribed. However, vitamin D supplementation has been shown to be ineffective in a number of studies. The only other alternative for obtaining vitamin D is via the sun. But how can do I this without getting burnt or increasing my risk of skin cancer?

How does your skin deal with the sun?

For the most part, our skin is not designed to withstand long periods of time in the sun. When we do, our body creates melanin, a pigment which gives the skin its color and helps protect the skin from some forms of sun damage (think tanning and pigmentation). In a nutshell, the darker your natural skin tone, the more melanin your skin contains, the less likely you are to burn.  When you do get sunburnt, DNA damage occurs in the skin cells. Under normal circumstances, a healthy body repairs this DNA damage and you’re none the wiser. However, under certain circumstances this DNA damage can lead to some types of skin cancer, particularly basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). 

What level of protection do you need?

This all depends on how much time you’re planning on spending in the sun. SPF numbers can be misleading as there is not a massive difference between SPF 15 and SPF 50 when it comes to UVB rays:

  • SPF 15 blocks 93% of UVB rays
  • SPF 30 blocks 97% of UVB rays
  • SPF 50 blocks 98% of UVB rays

In my opinion, if you’re only spending a limited amount of time in the sun on any given day, SPF 15 is all you need. However, if you’re heading to the beach or off on a bushwalk, which means you’ll be spending hours in the sun, grab the SPF 30 or 50.

How do you get Vitamin D safely?

The Cancer Council states that “the best source of vitamin D is UVB radiation from the sun”. Their recommendation for maintaining adequate vitamin D levels is to spend a few minutes outdoors on most days of the week when the UV Index is 3 or above (such as during summer). Sun protection is recommended when spending extended periods of time outdoors, especially when the UV index is at its highest.

    Beautiful lightweight lotion. Loving that it has natural sun protection

    I just love this product. I must say I love all of their products. Best I’ve tried ❤️

    I have very dry and sensitive skin and since I’ve started using this lotion, I have fewer dry patches and my skin feels very hydrated and nourished. The lotion smells lovely and fresh and a small amount goes a long way.
    I am a red-head with fair skin and I love the fact that this lotion contains sunscreen. It might not be the highest factor available but I mostly stay out of the sun anyway and SPF15 is enough for me.
    I guess the discussion about how much SPF you need is endless, depends on different factors and you will always get a lot of different answers.
    I love that the Clémence products are natural, organic, non-toxic, Australian-made and have recyclable packaging. Clémence is a winner for me. Thank you!!!

    I love so many of the Clemence products, but this face lotion is my all-time favorite! I LOVE it!
    It feels both simultaneously light and rich, but my skin never feels oily or heavy after applying this. If I could only choose one Clemence product, it would be this one, hands down.

    The smallest amount of this moistursier goes a long way and is so gentle on sensitive, problematic skin. I have rosacea and this cream is so soothing. I have noticed a dramatic difference in my skin, in particular fewer dry, scaly patches and the redness has reduced.

    I received a sample of this and OMG it is so lovely. I will be ordering it in full size. It’s a must!

    I use this everyday. I love the product but wish there was a stronger SPF in it as I have very fair skin.

    This is a lovely moisturiser and feels very light and non-irritating on my skin. Being a fair red head, although I absolutely love that it contains sunscreen, I have dropped one star as I wished the SPF was a little higher. I do however, highly recommend this product to others and if the SPF could be made higher I would be jumping with joy with the holy grail of products finally being found.

    Absolutely love this product — it feels divine, smells divine! Clemence Organics has been a serendipitous find for me. You can’t do better than affordable, organic, Australian-made products and, as a bonus, exemplary customer service!

    I love this cream. The fact that it contains a sunscreen is an added bonus-one less layer on my face! Perfect under foundation.

    I’m using all of the face products & finding that they are well suited for my skin type! I’m very impressed with what l haved purchased!

    Finally, I’ve found my perfect day lotion that applies evenly and easily without leaving any whiteness or greasiness. Instead, my face looks fresh and glowing. I am extra careful in the sun due to my sensitive skin and usually go for higher spf lotions, but this time I went for a lower spf than usual and, yep, it’s a winner! Thank you!

    This is the first time I have used this product. Absolutely love the fact that it is a moisturiser & sunscreen in one. It is not greasy & absorbs well. I have very fair skin & have had numerous sun cancers removed from my face, so will continue to use this product.

    I love the Daily Clarify Lotion – so easy to apply and leaves your skin feeling soft and smelling amazing!!

    The redness has reduced but at times during the day I still feel very dry and need to reapply more moisturiser. I use the repair serum and daily lotion moisturiser each morning and night. Dryness is still an issue some days.

      Thank you very much for taking the time to give us this feedback Tracey. We would recommend using our Refining Cleanser and adding in our Ultimate Biome Spritz as perhaps your cleanser is taking too much moisture from your skin. We would also recommend our Ultimate Face Creme for the evening. It is very hydrating and better suited to evening use. Hope this helps!

  22. C

    The smell is divine. It’s also much easier to spread on your face and keeps my face moist and hydrated. Just would like to have more SPF in it if that’s possible?

    • B

      Thanks so much for taking the time to give us feedback Caren. Your wish is our command! We are currently working on increasing the SPF on this product and should have it ready by Christmas 🙂

    My skin texture is fresher. Only dry patch is the bridge of my nose. A light yet nourishing moisturiser, perfect base for primer and foundation.

    Living in sunny WA and working in an air conditioned clinic, my skin quickly dried out using popular skin care brands before I started to use Clemence Organics skincare.
    I find the Protect and Clarify Daily Face Lotion effective at keeping my skin hydrated all day plus I have protection from UV light when I’m outdoors.
    I am so pleased to have found your products in my 50’s, plus I have no sensitivity issues as I had experienced with other well known brands. Thank you Bridget and your team!

    Really happy that I got this! I have been using the ultimate face creme for months now and absolutely loved it but felt I didn’t need it twice a day after showers as it’s super rich. This is the perfect ‘in-between’ for my morning lotion. I also love the smell of it!

    I thought I would let know that I am trying out your Daily Face Lotion and so far so good as I have very sensitive skin. I have been looking after two dogs for a few weeks now and my poor hands have been in water, detergent etc. and I have started to get to the stage where I have some dermatitis in between two fingers. For some relief I tried the Daily Face Lotion on my hands and it was very soothing.

    Thankyou for this gorgeous face lotion. It is so light and is easily absorbed and non greasy. My skin feels so soft and silky with the added benefit of sun protection! And it smells lovely!

    To have a day cream that nourishes your skin while protecting it from our harsh sun is absolutely brilliant. I have pigmentations which gets worse in summer. Your products have significantly improved my skin and to now have that option is a bonus.

    This creme is perfect for everyday use. Leaves a lovely glow, evens skin tone and has a beautiful gentle scent! Love it thank you Clémence!

    Exactly what I needed for summer! With the changing climate and extreme weather right now this day cream has become my latest essential. I love how light and fresh it feels and how it absorbs quickly and is non-greasy. It’s fast to apply if I am running out the door and leaves my skin feeling nourished and hydrated throughout the day. I love knowing that my face is protected from the elements in one cream.

    The products are great! I applied the eye creme last night and the sun lotion this morning before I went to work. Both feel amazing on my skin, and I love that the lotion isn’t greasy.
