The Obagi Sun Shield Broad Spectrum Matte sunscreen is more than just another sunscreen. Its intelligently designed light-weight formula quickly absorbs into your skin leaving a matte, non-greasy finish, ideal to be worn under make-up.

Sun induced skin damage occurs via the generation of free radicals in your skin cells. These free radicals can induce premature cell ageing which in turn reduces the levels of collagen and elastin in your skin. This leads to the gradual appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and reduced firmness. The Obagi Matte sunscreen cleverly utilises ubiquinone, a free-radical neutralising compound, to protect your skin from these detrimental pathways.
