"Q-SunShade™ SPF 30+ Sunscreen is the perfect combination of broad-spectrum sun protection, color, and moisture with all the benefits of vitamins and antioxidants to help protect and restore the skin from the damage of Ultraviolet Light. Scientific Studies have demonstrated that Green Tea Polyphenols afford significant protection against sun damage, UV induced immunosuppression and skin cancer. In human volunteers, application of Green Tea extracts resulted in inhibition of acute UV-induced erythema (sunburn) and inhibited the influx of inflammatory cells. They also reduced the DNA damage from UV radiation exposure and show multiple chemo-preventative activities. Q-SunShade™ SPF 30+ can be safely used immediately following any non-surgical procedure The need for both SPF and UVA protection in combination with the use of IPL, Laser treatments, Microdermabrasion, and chemical peels is critical."

"NANOTECHNOLOGY exploits structures smaller than a wavelength of light. Light waves are 400 to 800 nanometers (nm) in length. Specifically the particles of Z-Cote® micronized Zinc Oxide used in Q-Sunshade™ are just such nano-particles. A special process is used to separate these microscopically small particles and at this extreme small size, these tiny particles when dispersed well, can block 4 to 8 times as much UV light as normal Zinc Oxide."
