A High Protection Sun Oil

A High Protection Sun Oil! French luxury beauty brand Clarins has been researching sun protection for more than 30 years. And this summer, the brand is launching a innovative sun care product that offers a number of benefits. It’s a transparent, dry oil with both UVA and UVB protection that leaves no oily feel at all. (It feels like a light, scented mist when you spray it.)Tapping Clarins’ expertise in skincare, the formula incorporates nyamplung oil, a sacred tree in Indonesia. This oil is long known to nourish skin and hair. It contains omegas-6 and 9 and fatty acids to embellish skin and hair.


The second powerful plant extract in this sun protection oil is from a shrub called Senna, originally found in tropical America. It’s golden yellow flowers only open in sunlight. Clarins’ researchers discovered that the leaves are rich in flavinoids and tannins which protect DNA from changes caused by UV rays. This is a big breakthrough in UV protection research.

Scientists have long looked to another powerful plant to help in the fight against free radicals. The bark of the Plane tree increases cells’ abilitiy to resist free radicals generated by UV rays. It does this by reinforcing the protection of cellular membranes against the oxidation process by these free radicals. Added aloe vera helps to calm and soothe skin. Aloe has been used by indigenous healers for years.

The fact that Clarins has created a high protection sun oil is a feat in itself. But add in the fact that this formula protects hair from the sun’s harmful effects and the drying effects of sea salt. Since it is so lightweight, it doesn’t weigh down hair or make it feel oily. The oil is gently scented with an exotic scent containing notes of citrus, mandarin, blackcurrant, kiwi, mango, jasmine, violet, sandalwood, and amber.


As an added bonus, this fresh, lightweight mist helps to boost the look of a radiant tan, leaving skin satin-smooth. It’s water resistant for 40 minutes and perspiration resistant making it ideal for outdoor activities.


I’m gave away a Clarins Sun Care Oil Spray SPF 30 UVA/UVB for Body and Hair on July 18th. I asked readers to tell me their thoughts on a sun protection oil for body and hair. Jody F told us her thoughts and we drew her name at random.

    As a natural blonde with very fair skin, this is just what I need for complete protection in the sunshine!! SPF30 is ideal and made by Clarins, I would have every confidence – especially with a recommendation from David Lackie!

    Hair is often ignored when it comes to sun protection and it is directly under its heat and light everytime we venture into the beautiful outdoors. Color and shine will last longer when you take this extra important step. I know my hair doesnt get this treatment and I would love to experience it Dave. @angelehm

    This one sounds amazing. I can almost smell the wonderful smell only reading description and “fresh, lightweight mist helps to boost the look of a radiant tan, leaving skin satin-smooth” got me completely. Will look into this. And I tend to forget that my hair need sun protection too, this would solve it all 🙂
