Sheer Silk Moisturizer SPF 15 contains an in-part zinc oxide sunscreen, which is excellent. However, the peroxidized corn oil is cause for concern because oxidizing an oil can lead to free-radical damage when applied over intact skin.

Stimulates collagen & new cell growth while nourishing & protecting your skin. A broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 15 sunscreen blocks dangerous, wrinkle-causing rays. Skin-enhancing light diffusers give skin an immediate healthy glow.

Active: Octinoxate (7.5%), Zinc Oxide (5%), Other: Water, Peroxidized Corn Oil, Soybean Oil, Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Polyacrylamide, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Laureth Steareth-21, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Myristyl Myristate, Petrolatum, Tocopheryl Acetate Panthenol, Green Tea Extract, Lactic Acid, Cetyl Alcohol, Xanthan Gum, Disodium EDTA, Steareth-2, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Triethanolamine, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Propylene Glycol, Diazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, BHT

Known primarily for their well-formulated AHA products, Alpha Hydrox got an impressive image update recently. Although the improvements were more visual and packaging-related than formulary-driven, the fact remains that Alpha Hydrox has a formidable range of effective AHA products, all with definitively researched glycolic acid. Kudos to the company for continuing to be direct about the AHA content (and pH) of their exfoliants, something most other lines selling AHA products prefer to keep a mystery. Should the folks behind this brand choose to go back to the drawing board once again, they would do well to reconsider their current jar packaging if they intend to keep adding antioxidants and other beneficial ingredients to their efficacious but still predominantly basic products. Until then, you can rely on Alpha Hydrox for supplying AHA products that really work, and a few other surprises too, all affordably priced and readily available.
