Kiehl's Philippines


MANILA, Philippines – On March 20th, 2019, Kiehl’s Philippines unveiled their latest product, Dermatologist Solutions Ultra Light Daily UV Defense Aqua Gel SPF 50 PA++++ with a poolside event at the Ascott Hotel in Makati City.

What is Ultra Light Daily UV Defense?

In 2005, Kiehl’s introduced Dermatologist solutions—a collection of advanced skin care formulated by Kiehl’s chemists together with dermatologists to effectively address skin concerns. Best known for the Clearly Corrective line, the Powerful Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate and Ultra Light Daily UV Defense, the range boasts a big chunk of Kiehl’s customer favorites both in the Philippines and globally. The Ultra Light Daily UV Defense

Sunscreens all have an SPF 50 PA++++ that protect the skin from the sun for up to 8 hours without direct sun exposure. On top of this, it also provides both UVA and UVB protection to ensure that the skin is protected from both premature aging and possible burning. Having found that customers expressed interest in a lightweight sunscreen that is suitable for humid conditions and does not exacerbate oily skin, Kiehl’s chemists developed a water-light formula: the brand new Dermatologist Solutions Ultra Light Daily UV Defense Aqua Gel SPF 50 PA++++. Like the rest of the range, the new formula also defends the skin against harmful UVA/UVB rays, and forms a

protective barrier on the surface of the skin to prevent oxidative stress from environmental aggressors.

Combined with the antioxidant power of Vitamin E, the formula keeps the skin hydrated all day. It is also unscented and non-comedogenic.

Activated Sun Protector
