PROTECT barrier cream with UV, pollution & blue-light defense

Children under 4 years and pregnant women, ask a doctor prior to use. The ingredient butyloctyl salicylate is widely used in clean, EWG verified sunscreens that are formulated for babies and recommended during pregnancy, nevertheless in the absence of conclusive data on salicylate use in these populations, and because we are hyper conservative when it comes to your care, we advise children under 4 and pregnant women to check with their doctor prior to use.
