Suncare that cares.

MEGASHADE™

Mineral filter

Mineral sunscreens create a physical barrier between your skin and harmful UV rays, swatting them away from your precious skin. This "blocking" technique is why they're commonly known as physical sunscreens. MEGASHADE is formulated with Zinc Oxide (3%), a non-irritating filter that marries with our chemical filters to sink in and spread easily.

MEGASHADE™

Chemical filters

Chemical filters absorb UV rays and convert them into heat, neutralizing harmful free radicals. They're also what lends our formula its weightless quality—free from any chalky white-cast—that blends sheer-to-clear. We formulate with Homosalate (7.5%), Octisalate (5%) and Octinoxate (7.5%).

MEGASHADE™

Colloidal Oatmeal

The breakfast of dewy champions! But no, really, this antioxidant is an emollient, meaning that it softens and bear-hugs needy skin. Colloidal oatmeal is also water-binding, meaning it locks in moisture. That's absolutely not the whole scoop on this legendary active, though—it also soothes redness and texture caused by breakouts.

MEGASHADE™

Niacinamide

Otherwise known as B3, Niacinamide is a water-soluble vitamin that turns down redness and soothes breakouts. Niacinamide also helps to revive and revitalize your moisture barrier following damage or dehydration, helping skin improve its natural production of hydrating ceramides. Your skin's calm, logical, level-headed friend.

MEGASHADE™

Kakadu plum (Vitamin C)

Containing the highest Vitamin C content from any food source in the world, this powerful antioxidant from Australia helps to brighten any existing dark spots and block further UV-induced pigmentation from forming. Vitamin C also plays a role in collagen synthesis, while helping to neutralize free radicals, making it the ultimate sunscreen-meets-skincare ingredient.

MEGASHADE™

Ferulic Acid

A do-gooder antioxidant that protects against free radicals, Ferulic acid fights skin degradation (referred to as aging by most, which is a beautiful part of life btw!), reducing the appearance of fine lines while firming skin. Buddying up with Vitamin C, another antioxidant, the duo is able to strengthen their blockade against harmful free radicals for ultimate protection.

MEGASHADE™

Tea Tree

An antibacterial agent from our home shores, Australia, that purifies pores and boots zit-causing debris from the party that is your face. We've formulated MEGASHADE with an amount that's enough to repel breakouts but not so much that it irritates skin.

MEGASHADE™

Ceramide NG

Replete with healthy fatty acids, this angelic ceramide helps retain moisture and boost skin's elasticity, keeping it firm, plump and supple. Ceramides can also help to revive dehydrated skin—for example, if you've used too many aggressive chemical exfoliants and your skin is parched beyond desert levels, ceramides can help rebuild your moisture barrier.

MEGASHADE™

Hyaluronic Acid

One of the most adored skincare ingredients, Hyaluronic Acid is molecule that naturally occurs in your skin. HA works (in collaboration with Ceramide NG) as your hydration station; a moisture magnet that retains water stores in your skin to give you a luminous, dewy glow.

BREAKOUT-PROOF

MEGASHADE™

Suncare, but also skincare.

Call it a sunscreen, call it a day serum: Both are correct. MEGASHADE beholds mega ingredients that work in more ways than one.

This overachieving facial SPF 50 doubles as a potent day serum that loyally defends, nourishes and revives your skin. A multi-tasking serum that makes ordinary sunscreens look lazy 😎

Megashade Fights

UV Rays
Chemical-mineral hybrid for broad-spectrum protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays.
Breakouts
Non-comedogenic (won't block pores) and not only safe for breakouts, but actively fights them.
Dark spots
Potent brightening formula protects dark spots from worsening, while shielding new ones from forming.
Skin degradation
Barrier-boosting ceramides deter skin degradation (not 'anti-aging', bc aging is a beautiful part of life!)

Just in case you were wondering

Where does MEGASHADE fit into my skincare routine?
MEGASHADE has a serum-like finish but its primary job is fighting UV rays and protecting your excellent face from the sun's harsh rays! It should be applied as your very last skincare step, after your serums and before makeup. However! Since it's packed with skincare ingredients that might appear in your day serums (Vitamin C, Ferulic Acid, Niacinamide and more), MEGASHADE also doubles as a potent day serum that brightens and antioxidizes while fighting breakouts and dark spots, so you may not even need your normal day serum :)
Is MEGASHADE reef-safe?
MEGASHADE is unlike classic beach bag sunscreens that are thick and leave a white cast—we formulated it for every day urban use, with active ingredients to boost your skincare routine. With that said, due to the presence of Octinoxate (7.5%), MEGASHADE cannot technically be considered reef-safe (we've formulated with Octinoxate as it blends seamlessly, lending a beautifully dewy finish). (It's worth noting that the terms “reef-safe” and “reef-friendly” aren’t regulated meaning there is no agreed-upon definition.) If we are to examine the available testing that does exist around reef-safe sunscreens, research reveals that all sunscreen filters, including the notoriously considered ""safe"" minerals zinc oxide and titanium oxide (uncoated and nano-size i.e. of less than 35 nanometers in diameter), gather in our oceans and may overtime, impact the world's beautiful reefs.
What do you mean by "broad-spectrum protection"?
Broad-spectrum covers both UVA and UVB rays (as opposed to just one). UVA protection works against the aging rays (let's just quickly note that aging is NOT a dirty word; and rather, a beautiful part of life!). UVB protection works against the burning rays. MEGASHADE deflects and blocks both types of rays for comprehensive sun protection.
SPF 50 seems high. Do I really need that level of protection?
Skin cancer is the most preventable form of cancer, and using a high quality broad-spectrum SPF is the key to that prevention. skincancer.org say, "The SPF number tells you how long the sun’s UV radiation would take to redden your skin when using the product exactly as directed versus the amount of time without any sunscreen. So ideally, with SPF 30 it would take you 30 times longer to burn than if you weren’t wearing sunscreen." "An SPF 30 allows about 3 percent of UVB rays to hit your skin. An SPF of 50 allows about 2 percent of those rays through. That may seem like a small difference until you realize that the SPF 30 is allowing 50 percent more UV radiation onto your skin."

Invisible and lightweight

This is the best sunscreen I've ever tried. It has a serum-like consistency, it's not tacky, and it leaves the skin with a hydrating glow. It doesn't pill, and it fades to near invisibility. Of course, if doesn't break me out either. It's amazing and worth it.

Glowy protection

Sooo easy to apply, smells good, and most importantly: actually doesn’t make my ultra sensitive acne prone skin break out. It does what it says! Super dewy! Not the best under makeup but I love it for my days off from work when I don’t have to worry about dressing up. I was also worried with how white it is, but it completely blends perfectly into skin. I really love it.

New Holy Grail Sunscreen

I am VERY picky when it comes to sunscreens… I do not like SPF that brakes me out, stings my eyes, smells too “chemically”, too much white cast and is ineffective.

I DO like sunscreen that is moisturizing—not greasy, minimal to NO white cast, good for sensitive/acne prone skin and IS effective.

This sunscreen serum is everything I like, need and WANT in a sunscreen. It’s a hybrid sunscreen which I love. Everyone I have ever recommended this to is in love too.

I will forever repurchase this so long as the quality SPF and formula never changes!

Finally!

I’ve been searching for a sunscreen that doesn’t break me out and works well under my makeup for years…this is it! It’s the first I’ve tried that I don’t mind wearing every day. Highly recommend.
