Daily facial moisturizer with mineral sun defense.
While providing broad spectrum SPF 30 sun protection from mineral zinc oxide, this antioxidant-rich triple-threat balm hydrates, nourishes, and revitalizes skin. The antioxidant power of unique-to-Thrive super-plants combines with the hydrating & skin restoring benefits of Arabica coffee oil. Tazman Pepper™ adds extra protection against sun, pollution, and other skin stressors you’re up against. Our Daily Defense Balm helps to recover the health of your skin after a stress-filled day.
Non-nano zinc oxide blocks sun’s harmful UVA/B rays, but it’s also reef-safe for our aquatic friends. Vegan, cruelty-free, GMO-free. Safe for you and the planet.
It quickly absorbs without leaving behind a white residue or feeling greasy or sticky.
Thrive’s exclusive super-plants - Juanilama, Coralillo, and Fierrillo - bring skin-protecting antioxidants to the party.
This antioxidant-rich formula protects your skin. Mineral sunscreen with antioxidants built in is hard to find, but extra protection from UV rays prevents damage before it starts, so you can focus on doing what you love.

If you’re swimming or sweating, water-resistant sunscreen (like Thrive’s BodyShield 50) is your best bet. Ask your doctor about the best suncare method for kids under 6 months.
