The Life Extension Buyers Club carries a sunscreen product developed by life extension scientists, Durk & Sandy Shaw, that protects the skin from sunlight while allowing the “good” rays in for a healthy tan.
Maui SolarMax is a scientifically formulated sunscreen product that is quickly absorbed into the skin. The amazingly waterproof formula contains sunscreen active ingredients and antioxidant nutrients such as vitamins A, C, D, and E, and the luxuriously exotic macadamia nut oil, all to moisturize and protect. In fact, macadamia nut has high levels of palmitoleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid that has proven to be a great antioxidant on the skin. Drying out of the skin will not happen with Maui SolarMax, as the isopropyl alcohol contained in the product will evaporate almost immediately, leaving the skin to absorb the moisturizers.
Not only is it a protection against ultraviolet radiation, it is also highly waterproof. Once it’s applied, Maui SolarMax stays on until you wash it off with soap, no matter how many times you go into water. The product also has an SPF rating of 17, which means you can take 17 times more exposure to the sun before sunburn starts.
Based on the nourishing ingredients and UV protection in this product, Maui SolarMax can be considered a healthy skin guard. It’s also safer for sensitive skin—it has no PABA or benzophenone.
