Here at Apostrophe, we’re big on taking care of your skin by keeping it hydrated and protected. We’ve had lots of requests to launch a sunscreen, so we’re very excited to introduce you to our first product available without a prescription - ‘Screen!
‘Screen is a sheer, lightweight sunscreen that is specifically designed for sensitive and acne-prone skin. This derm-approved SPF is bound to become a new staple in your skincare routine. With broad-spectrum SPF 43, 'Screen keeps your skin protected from UVA & UVB rays. We’ve incorporated hydrating and soothing ingredients to create a moisturizing formula that works for all skin types. Pro tip: if you have oily skin, ‘Screen can double as your moisturizer and SPF in one!
We formulated ‘Screen to be the perfect complement to your Apostrophe topical treatments. Many prescription treatments can make your skin more sun-sensitive, so it’s important to be diligent with SPF in the morning. On top of that, acne treatments can be drying, so ‘Screen’s hydrating, fragrance-free formula is a great match to help combat dryness. If you’re looking for the perfect “other half” to your acne treatments, look no further.
‘Screen has been dermatologist-tested and is safe for sensitive and acne-prone skin. According to our medical director Dr. Paik, “Aside from a prescription topical treatment, sunscreen is the most important part of a daily skincare routine. A quality sunscreen is essential to protect against damaging UV rays.” To top it off, most face sunscreens contain 1.7 oz of product. We included 3 oz of ‘Screen to encourage you to apply and reapply the derm-recommended amount of SPF to keep your skin protected all day, every day.
Let’s talk about the star ingredients in ‘Screen. ‘Screen is a hybrid sunscreen, meaning it uses a mix of mineral and chemical filters. “Zinc oxide is the best ingredient for preventing hyperpigmentation,” says Dr. Paik. Octinoxate and Octisalate, ‘Screen’s chemical filters, protect against damaging UV rays.
The cherry on top? We’ve also included sodium hyaluronate (a form of hyaluronic acid), panthenol, and allantoin to hydrate and soothe your skin. The combination of ‘Screen’s hydrating ingredients and hybrid formula creates a lightweight, blendable sunscreen that provides broad-spectrum (UVA & UVB) protection. You can rest assured knowing that ‘Screen is keeping your skin moisturized and protected.
You asked for a derm-approved sunscreen, so we delivered. We’re so excited for you to try ‘Screen out for yourselves. It’s now available for purchase here - no prescription needed. We can’t wait to see you #SlatherOn your ‘Screen!
