Production of collagen begins to decline at age 20-25, and production of elastin slows to a trickle by age 40. TriHex Technology® stimulates BOTH.

Physician Insight

"I typically recommend mineral based sunscreens for my sensitive skin patients because they are less likely to react to it, and this is a 100% mineral sunscreen making it great for those patients. This sunscreen has a few unique qualities about it. First of all, I’ve never felt a sunscreen like this: it’s silky and smooth, while at the same time feels lightweight and moisturizing. Another key unique property of SIlkSHIELD is the TriHex Technology®, and the more TriHex the better. Finally, SilkSHIELD has blue light protection without a tint – which is unusual, and convenient for someone who doesn’t want tinted sunscreen. It can be layered with makeup without causing that pilling effect, and is appropriate for any patient to use.”
