How to use

Apply 1-2 finger lengths of product to face and neck each morning. 

For best results, smooth onto clean, bare skin, blending well. The tint will vanish on application, leaving skin luminous and hydrated. If your skin is dry, you can apply a water-based moisturizer first. 

Before applying makeup, wait 30-60 seconds to allow the product to set for use as a long-lasting primer.

FAQs

Why is broad spectrum protection important?

Minu Brightening Sunscreen Minerals was designed to provide broad-spectrum UVA/UVB. There are multiple wavelengths of ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun. UV rays in the UVB spectrum are shorter and primarily contribute to sunburn and DNA damage, which leads to skin cancer. Longer-wavelength UVA radiation contributes to photoaging, such as brown spots, wrinkling, and sallowing of the skin. Broad-spectrum is a U.S. labeling system issued by the FDA that indicates protection against both UVB and UVA radiation.

What is PA++++?

The broad-spectrum designation in the United States is binary—a sunscreen either is or isn't broad spectrum. However, the PA+ system, which is mostly used in Asia, is more nuanced. It indicates the degree of UVA protection because the number of plus signs represents how robustly a sunscreen protects against UVA rays and goes from + (signifying some UVA protection) to ++++ (signifying extremely high UVA protection). In addition, in the EU, broad-spectrum protection is determined by the ratio of UVA to UVB protection, with a minimum UVA/SPF ratio of 1/3. Minu's Brightening Sunscreen Minerals achieves the highest standards of global broad-spectrum protection ratings in the U.S., Europe, and Asia, protecting against UVA, UVB, infrared, pollution, and blue light, with a PA++++ rating and meeting the UVA/SPF ratio of 1/3.

Why SPF 30?

The American Academy of Dermatology recommends using a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 for daily facial use. An SPF of 30 blocks 97% of the sun's UVB rays with an SPF of 50 blocking 98%. Unlike most sunscreens, our formula also achieves the highest ratings for broad-spectrum protection across the U.S., Europe and Asia (with a PA++++ rating). We have combined the recommended SPF with product durability, safety and wearability to create a sunscreen that provides superior protection.

How blue light and infrared light protection is important

Minu Brightening Sunscreen Minerals was designed to provide blue light and infrared protection. That’s because both blue light and infrared radiation can contribute to oxidative damage of the skin, through accumulation of free radicals. This can lead to signs of skin aging like hyperpigmentation and a dull complexion.

How does the product brighten skin?

Our formula has a beautiful but subtle brightening effect that gives a lit-from-within glow. At the same time, it's not heavy enough to mask the natural variation and uniqueness of one's complexion. It's an elegant and quite unique finish. How we achieved this effect is due to our light-diffusing technology. It is made up of specifically selected minerals (iron oxide, ethically sourced mica) whose unique shape reflects, refracts, and evenly diffuses light, helping to even skin tone, blur wrinkles, and reduce the appearance of fine lines, age spots, and other skin imperfections when applied to the skin.

Dermatologist explains what makes Minu different.

Mineral sunscreens have long struggled with a couple of aspects that have been troublesome to consumers. They may feel thicker or goopier on the skin, which can make application cumbersome. The zinc oxide component can leave a white cast that is noticeable on any skin type but particularly problematic with darker skin tones.

With decades of experience, notably creating and bringing to market the core suncare technologies at Neutrogena, our team was uniquely positioned to reinvent sunscreen for the modern discerning consumer.

We spent years developing Minu's proprietary technology behind this product, called Mineral SuperblendTM. Guided by deep scientific rigor, we meticulously select only the most efficacious and skin-loving minerals from around the world.

Our formula is a delicate fusion of the finest few minerals with plant extracts, vitamins, and peptides, acting as a superfood to protect, illuminate, and recharge:

  • Protect: Carefully selected zinc and titanium create a tightly woven invisible mesh, providing more durable, superior protection.
  • Illuminate: Pigments of iron oxide and mica instantly brighten, smooth, and even out all skin tones, blurring fine lines and reducing the visibility of spots.
  • Recharge: Antioxidant and anti-irritant properties in echinacea, ginger, allantoin, bisabolol, and vitamins B3 (niacinamide), B5, and E soothe skin, reduce redness, and shield from damage caused by pollution, blue light, and infrared.
What is the difference between chemical and physical sunscreens?

The primary difference between these sunscreens is the active ingredients they contain. If the active ingredient in your sunscreen is titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, or both, you have a physical sunscreen. Dermatologists recommend physical sunscreens, also called mineral sunscreens, for people with sensitive skin.

If your sunscreen doesn’t contain titanium dioxide or zinc oxide, you have a chemical sunscreen. Some sunscreens are called hybrids because they contain one or more active ingredients found in chemical and physical sunscreens. To see what active ingredients your sunscreen has, look at the section on the container labeled “Active Ingredients.”
