Our first-line defence against the harmful effects of sun exposure.

Protection from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays is important all year round, not just during the summer or at the beach. UVA and UVB rays can cause sunburn, brown spots (sun spots), faster skin ageing, and increased skin cancer risk.

A complete approach to protecting and preserving skin, Obagi encourages the use of sun protectors with all its systems on a daily basis to:

  • Prevent premature ageing
  • Preserve skin radiance
  • Inhibit photo-ageing

Sun Shield Matte SPF50

Obagi Sun Shield Broad-Spectrum SPF50 (Equivelent to PA+++) uses micronised zinc oxide and octinoxate to protect new, younger-looking skin through high UVB absorption and dynamic UVA protection.

Sun Shield TINTS SPF50

Obagi Sun Shield Tint Broad Spectrum SPF 50 sunscreens use the best of both physical and chemical ingredients to provide broad spectrum protection against harmful UVA/UVB rays, and additionally, defends against Infrared (IR) rays. Available in a Warm or Cool tint to complement the unique undertones of your skin.
