On the spot

Screen star 

Nuori, Mineral Defence Sunscreen Face & Body SPF30, $59/£50 (1.7 fl oz/50 mL) 

US: www.nuori.us 
UK: www.contentbeautywellbeing.com 

Not long ago, all-natural sunscreen was hard to find. Now there’s no lack of great options, like this mineral face and body sunscreen by Nuori. It’s formulated using a new generation of transparent, non-nano zinc oxide that provides broad-spectrum protection without leaving a white cast on the skin. It’s also packed with potent antioxidants including karanja oil, carrot oil and vitamin E, plus nourishing botanicals like shea butter and sunflower seed oil. It’s fragrance-free, easy to apply and leaves the skin feeling silky soft. 


 

Super C 

Igennus Healthcare Nutrition 

Liposomal Vitamin C & Zinc, $31/£24.99 (15.2 fl oz/450 mL) 

www.igennus.com 

Specialist supplement company Igennus has just launched an advanced immune support complex featuring super-absorbable forms of vitamin C and zinc along with synergistic selenium and copper. Designed to give your immune system a boost all year round, the vegan liquid formula uses liposomal technology, which means the vitamin C is encapsulated in tiny fat-like particles called liposomes that protect it on its journey through the stomach to your bloodstream and cells that need it. The other nutrients are also in well-absorbed forms: zinc and copper bisglycinate and the natural form of selenium. 

While some liposomal supplements are loaded with sugar or artificial flavorings to improve taste, this one is free of sugar and sweeteners and naturally flavored with citrus and vanilla. It’s also free of gluten, wheat, dairy, soy and artificial colors. It’s tasty enough to take straight from the spoon, or you can add it to a drink or yogurt. Each 15-mL serving (3 tsp) supplies 1,000 mg of vitamin C, 15 mg zinc, 1 mg copper and 70 mcg selenium.
