I recently tried Nia 24 Sun Damage Prevention 100% Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30. This is one of the best SPF moisturizers on the market for a number of reasons. To sum up: this product is natural, effective, and anti-aging.
It works not only as effective sun protector, but as an anti-aging moisturizer. Dual functionality is a huge plus for me, since it speeds up my morning routine by eliminating the need to separately apply a moisturizer and a sunscreen. It also removes the possibility of conflicting ingredients, where ingredients from a moisturizer and an SPF do not jive well together.
Let’s dwell deeper into the depth of labeled ingredients and product effectiveness:
Natural: Nia 24 consists of natural ingredients and is ranked #3 in cosmetic database (most of the over-the-counter sunscreens range between 5 and 7).
Effective: NIA 24 line claims to rebuild skin in three ways: repair skin damage, prevent wrinkles by stimulating energy metabolism, and promote skin turnover.
Formulated with 5% Pro-NiacinTM, potent antioxidant vitamin E, and a full 9.4% micronized Titanium Dioxide and 3.6% micronized Zinc Oxide, this product provides a way to get both anti-aging and physical sunscreen benefits everyday.
Niacin (form of Vitamin B) in its acidic and basic forms has been established to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, hyper pigmented spots, red blotchiness, and skin sallowness (yellowing), and increase skin’s elasticity.
Niacin in the NIA 24 line is available in the form of Pro-NiacinTM, which breaks down to Nicotinic Acid and makes it even more effective anti-aging prevention. Ingredients such as potent antioxidant and Vitamin E contribute to moisturizing and anti-aging prevention.
The sunscreen consists of 9.4% micronized Titanium Dioxide and 3.6% micronized Zinc Oxide and is a physical sunscreen. Physical sunscreen is the most effective sunscreens on the market proven to block UVB and UVA sun rays and prevent cancer.
This sunscreen is a great product to get the anti-aging benefits of Niacin and physical sunscreen in one product.
Is it worth buying? Definitely! While NIA 24 sunscreen may be more pricey than some other SPF on the market (retails around $45), it is certainly worth buying due to its effectiveness. You may be getting a less expensive product, but does it matter if it doesn’t do the job and contains cancel causing ingredients?
Personally speaking, I love how this product works on my skin. In the short time that I’ve used it, it brightened my skin, reduced some of the sun spots and makes my skin appear firmer and moist.
