Sali Hughes tested moisturisers with SPF in The Guardian and rated this her No1 choice, ahead of all others, calling it her 'runaway victor', best moisturiser with SPF:

• Intense hydration & long term moisturisation for dewy, radiant, plump skin
• Repairs & protects your moisture barrier
• Boosts collagen & elastin reserves to increase elasticity and reduce wrinkles
• Anti-oxidants protect against collagen damage from UV light
• Robust SPF protection to help prevent further skin ageing including hyper-pigmentation
• Seriously skin soothing to reduce redness 

It's great for all skins and especially good at re-booting dry skins to perform better for themselves.  Rapid increase in moisture levels & a buffering comfort, with long-term hydration and moisture barrier repair.  Oily or combination skins will benefit from the sebum-controlling and anti-bacterial ingredients, as well as enjoying the non-greasy formula. It leaves a velvety finish that is perfect as a pre make up primer. It's Vegan Society Certified

Formulated with clinically tested active ingredients, all used in the powerful clinical concentrations, Youth Preservation Moisturiser™ SPF20 will deliver:

Hydration through the levels of skin via Hyaluronic Acid in 3 molecular weights.
• Collagen and Elastin boosting Matrixyl peptide and amino acids, to reduce lines & wrinkles and increase skin elasticity and suppleness
• Skin protecting anti oxidants, polyphenols and SPF, to prevent skin ageing damage
• Skin soothing and anti-redness from anti-inflammatory's, including Bakuchiol and omega rich Echium Oil, especially good for sensitive and acne skins

For the most effective and visible results, we use several clinically proven active ingredients, to deliver each skin benefit. It's an expensive way to formulate which is why no-one else does it, but it's the best way to make sure you get results.  It is also safer  with less chance of skin irritation or perioral dermatitis, that is common with high concentration, single ingredient products/trends. This supercharged formula contains:

3 molecular weights of Hyaluronic Acid to  hydrate into deeper layers of the skin, smooth the surface, while also preventing breakout.
3 anti-oxidants - Mangosteen Extract, Baobab and Vitamin E - to provide all-day cellular protection.
3 sun filters, to provide SPF 20 daily sun-protection against the skin ageing effects of UVA/UVB. Includes the amazing Tinosorb sun filter

For those looking for natural skincare, the vast majority of our clinically tested, active ingredients are from natural sources (see below), and we use them in the FULL clinical concentrations; no skimping, so you get the best results.  The difference is, that our natural ingredients are evidence-based rather than the more common anecdotal claims. So you can be sure that they have been properly put to the test and proven, under clinical conditions, to do what we claim.  I don't make a big thing of being natural skincare, because everything has a chemical structure; even water is H20! 

Every natural ingredient is subject to scientific processing that changes the structure of the natural plant. The industry is full of people who want to scare you into buying their 'natural', 'free-from', 'no nasties' ingredients and products. It's marketing and soon it will be outlawed because it is designed to dupe you.  I don't subscribe to fear-mongering you into buying products even though; most of my ingredients are of natural origin; I don't use sulphates or parabens etc.; all of my products, have been subjected to rigorous safety testing including certification that they are safe to use. Also compatibility testing to make sure they work with the packaging. Micro testing to make sure that the preservative system works and there are no 'bugs' in your product. Stability testing to make sure the formula is robust and won't fall apart in weather extremes, as well as last for the shelf life.  We are about evidence-based, sensorial therapy to you get results and feel confident. No BS. No Judgement. Just GREAT Skin! That's what you get from me.

Through my adulthood as I wanted to address signs of skin ageing, I never found a moisturiser that did not make my spots worse, so I didn't use one. Not great when most dermatologists agree that moisture is key for youthful skin. The brief I gave to the genius Cosmetic Scientists; rich enough for dry skin but not greasy for oilier skin, light but powerful, multi-cellular moisture but not spot causing, SPF and a silky finish ready for makeup.

We were the first to use 3 different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid because it goes to different layers of the skin and gives 3X the potency and the smaller fragment helps prevent spots. We used 3 different sun filters, so you're less likely to get any reaction and the protection is robust. We also used 3 different antioxidants to counter free radical damage.This is a much more expensive way of formulating, but if you can imagine a brick wall, the joins in the bricks don't line up and that makes it stronger and better to protect you.
