Sheer Hydration Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 40 is a silky and sheer physical sunscreen that provides powerful broad-spectrum protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays.

It uses a combination of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide while moisturizing with vitamin E. This formula is also packed with free-radical-quenching antioxidants, including a stable vitamin C, resveratrol, grape seed extract, and glutathione.


Apply generously and evenly to face, neck, and chest 15 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply as needed or after swimming, washing, towel drying or heavy perspiring.

Caution: For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes, eyelids and mucous membranes. Keep out of reach of children. Prior to use on children under 6 months of age, consult a physician.  


Micronized Zinc Oxide: A safe, micro-fine mineral that offers broad-spectrum protection from both UVA (aging) and UVB (sunburn-causing) rays without leaving residual chalkiness on skin. Zinc oxide is known as a physical sunscreen agent, largely reflecting and scattering UV rays.

Titanium Dioxide: A safe naturally occurring mineral coated for sun stability, titanium dioxide offers broad-spectrum protection from both UVA (aging) and UVB (sunburn-causing) rays. Like zinc oxide, titanium dioxide is known as a physical sunscreen agent, largely reflecting and scattering UV rays.

Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate: A stable form of the powerful antioxidant vitamin C, which protects the skin against UV-induced free radical damage. It also brightens the skin and evens out skin tone.

Tocopherol Acetate: An effective form of vitamin E for the skin, this highly moisturizing and fat-soluble vitamin protects cell membranes and acts as an antioxidant, which strengthens the effect of vitamin C.

Resveratrol: Derived either from grape seeds or the Japanese knotweed plant, this antioxidant neutralizes free radical damage, protecting skin from sun damage.

Grape Seed Extract: Derived from grape seeds, this antioxidant enhances the effect of sunscreen by protecting skin against UV-induced free radicals.

Glutathione: An antioxidant peptide produced naturally in our bodies, glutathione helps recycle other antioxidants. Glutathione levels decrease with age.

2 reviews for AlumierMD Sheer Hydration Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 40

  1. alsiegman

    I love using this sunscreen as the last step in my skincare routine! It goes on really nicely and doesn’t leave a white tint. It doesn’t leave my skin greasy which is so hard to come by in a facial SPF.

  2. Carey Mulligan

    I used this after my facial for acne prone skin and it’s very moisturizing without that heavy/greasy feel. It’s not tinted (which I prefer) and my powder sits well on it. Very compact and doesn’t clog your pores. It’s a must have in your skin care routine!
