Sunshine Stick SPF 30

This multifunctional, transparent stick formulation is designed to provide label SPF 30 performance. SolaStay® S1 provides photostabilization for Avobenzone. BRIGHT Oléoactif® and LIFT Oléoactif® provide anti-aging and skin brightening. HallBrite® BHB enhances the non-greasy, lightweight product feel.
