- KEY BENEFITS
- Perfect for daily protection and rich in antioxidants, the innovative sunscreen is reinforced with anti-pollution, anti-infrared, and anti-glycation technologies to shield skin from environmental aggressors to help prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
- Using only non-nano mineral sunscreen filters, Physical Sunscreen both absorbs and reflects damaging UV rays to protect the skin. The advanced formula glides over skin, quickly absorbing to leave a lightweight protective veil over the complexion.
- KEY INGREDIENTS
- Zinc Oxide, Carnosine, Marrubium Vulgare Extract
High SPF Protection
The intelligent formula provides exceptionally high SPF 50+ non-nano protection while feeling featherlight and non-sticky on the skin.
Soothes and Calms
The smooth, fragrance-free cream soothes and calms the skin while providing powerful protection against free radical damage caused by UV exposure. Ideal for use in the morning at the end of any Medik8 skincare regime to protect from premature skin ageing.
Carefully crafted for use after chemical peels when delicate skin is highly sensitive to UV exposure.
The semi-matte finish is a great base for make-up; skin is left protected, hydrated, and supple.
How It Works
Non-nano mineral filter zinc oxide reflects and absorbs UV rays to protect the skin from sun damage.
Marrubium vulgare extract provides superior anti-pollution defence to limit the damage caused by environmental pollutants.
Physical Sunscreen also includes anti-glycation (also known as anti-A.G.E.) technology. Glycation is a natural ageing process that occurs when excess sugars in our body bind themselves to proteins such as collagen and elastin, transforming them into advanced glycation end products (or A.G.E.s for short). As a result, the glycated protein fibres can no longer be renewed, which can lead to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Physical Sunscreen uses carnosine to help keep skin protected from glycation-derived skin ageing. Carnosine can also protect the skin from infrared rays, which are known to play a part in the breakdown of collagen.
How To Use
As the last step in your skincare routine, apply a liberal amount (¼ teaspoon or 5 pumps) of Physical Sunscreen to the face, adding more for the neck and décolletage, avoiding the eye area.
Use light, upward strokes and allow to absorb.
Reapply throughout the day as needed, and every 2 hours if in direct sunlight.
Perfect for layering over your favourite Medik8 vitamin C serum.
Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to medik8.com.au/patch for an in-depth guide to patch testing.

The Science Behind
“Physical sunscreens (also known as mineral or inorganic sunscreens) use UV filters, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. They are highly effective at protecting the skin from harmful UVA and UVB radiation from the sun which causes premature skin ageing. But there are some very common downsides when it comes to these sunscreens. They are often sticky, drying and leave a chalky white residue on the skin surface. These challenges lead formulators to develop lower SPF formulations or turn to nano-sized UV filters. Nano-sized (<100nm) filters leave less whitening on the skin, but there is some degree of uncertainty over their safety and environmental impact. We wanted to create a physical-only sunscreen that offered the highest SPF protection without these downsides. Physical Sunscreen combines non-nano physical filters into a high-protection SPF 50+ formula, which is lightweight, non-sticky and blends seamlessly with the skin when massaged in.”
